Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Ol Pejeta Conservancy is home to the largest population of black rhino in East Africa, and conversely, the last three northern white rhinos in the world. It is an area of about 400 km2 in the Laikipia region of northern Kenya.

Wildlife: The Conservancy is home to Kenya’s largest population of Black Rhino, large numbers of elephant, cheetah, lion, leopard, african wilddog and plentiful plains game. There are also a number of rarer Northern species such as Grevys Zebra, Jacksons Hartebees and Beisa Oryx.

Activities: Ol Pejeta Conservancy also offers plenty of additional activities (some at extra cost), including a visit to the Endangered Species Boma, home to the last remaining northern white rhinos in the world and hosting a breeding project for the endangered Grevy’s zebra and Jackson’s hartebeest. You can see these magnificent animals close up and find out more about the Conservancy’s anti-poaching strategies. A short drive away is Jane Goodall’s Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary, providing a safe refuge for chimpanzees that have been rescued from captivity and the bush-meat trade.
