Situated between the foot hills of the Aberdares and the magnificent snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya, the 110,000-acre private wilderness of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy boasts an astounding variety of wildlife, including all the members of the ‘Big Five' (the endangered black and white rhino , leopard, elephant, buffalo and lion).
Offering one of the highest wildlife densities in Kenya and a higher wildlife to acre ratio than any Kenyan national park, the conservancy offers sanctuary to a number of endangered species, most notably the rare Grevy's zebra and the Jackson's hartebeest. As well as being the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, the conservancy also hosts the only sanctuary for chimpanzees in Kenya.
Ol Pejeta House is located on the 110,000 acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Southern Laikipia. We regret the current problems brought about by the drought in the area and remain confident that the government, private sector and the pastoralist communities are working hand in hand to reinforce law and order whilst they seek a lasting solution. The affected area is about 100Kms away from the Ol Pejeta Conservancy where we are located. The Conservancy remains fully supported by its neighbors and is entirely unaffected.
Just three hour's drive from Nairobi, the conservancy is open from 7am to 7pm and is accessed via its main gate, which is 14 kilometres from Nanyuki (signed just before the outskirts of town).
A non-profit organization devoted to the preservation of wilderness and wildlife, the conservancy charges fees for entry, the proceeds of which go towards the support of both the conservancy and the human community that surrounds it. Typically, these fees will be included within the rates charged to those staying overnight in one of the conservancy's accommodation options. Alternatively, and in the case of day visitors, the fees are as follows;
