Activities at Kicheche Laikipia

Baraka (The blind Rhino) Visit

Black rhino Baraka lives in what used to be Morani’s 100-acre enclosure, carrying the flag for his predecessor. Baraka was born in the wild in Ol Pejeta, but lost sight in both eyes due to a fight and then a cataract. Baraka now lives in the enclosure, located next to the Morani Information Centre, for his own safety, and has taken to his new role as rhino ambassador.

It is possible to visit the enclosure during your visit at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
