Journey Details

DAY 1-3 Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Resting at the foothills of Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountain Range, in central Kenya’s Laikipia County, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa. It is also home to some of the last remaining northern white rhino in the world. Originally a working cattle ranch in colonial Kenya and now a pioneering wildlife conservancy, Ol Pejeta works to protect wildlife and provide a sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees. The Conservancy is a popular safari destination and is home to the renowned ‘Big Five’ as well as a wide selection of other African animals including zebra, giraffe, hippo, cheetah, jackal, serval, hyena, vervet monkey, and many more. Visitors can look forward to an assortment of outdoor activities such as horse rides, game walks, and nocturnal game drives.

Where you will stay: The River Camp Ol Pejeta

The River Camp at Ol Pejeta Conservancy offers a truly unique safari experience. Nestled along the picturesque Ngobit River, this eco-friendly camp boasts six luxurious double tents, each with their own private en-suite bathrooms and spacious decks. Here, guests can unwind and soak in the stunning surroundings while enjoying the utmost privacy and comfort.

Meals at The River Camp are a delight, with a dining tent offering mouthwatering dishes prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Guests can also enjoy the invigorating swimming pool, browse through the library’s collection of books or unwind with a drink at the bar lounge.

Beyond the camp, Ol Pejeta Conservancy offers a wealth of wildlife and natural beauty to explore. From thrilling game drives to intimate walks, guests can get up close and personal with Africa’s iconic wildlife in their natural habitat. The conservancy is also home to endangered species like rhinos, making it a significant conservation area.

For those seeking an exclusive and intimate safari experience, The River Camp at Ol Pejeta Conservancy is the ideal choice.

Mutuma and the team at Designer Safari could not have made the planning of this safari easier for us. The pricing and included aspects of the trip were clear and presented upfront; the communication was transparent and continous; and the chosen safari spot, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo was perfect. I couldn't recommend this team enough!
