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: Kicheche Laikipia

An eco-award-winning small luxurious tented camp nestled in the shadows of Mount Kenya at the foot of an indigenous forest overlooking a waterhole in the wilderness zone of Ol Pejeta. The camp’s squeaky green safari chic marries beautifully and sensitively with the natural beauty of its surroundings.

Despite being on the Equator, the camp boasts an altitude of 6,000 feet, introducing cool mornings and evenings influenced by the nearby mountain. Visitors are urged to prepare for the colder temperatures while relishing the eco-friendly charm and breathtaking scenery that define this award-winning retreat.

With 90,000 acres of wilderness, Ol Pejeta Conservancy is home to Kenya’s largest population of Black Rhinos, large numbers of elephants, cheetahs, lions, leopards, and plentiful plains game.

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!
