Room types at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp
Perfectly spaced along the Ewaso Nyiro River, the six traditional safari tents at Ol Pejeta are charming and full of character. All tents come complete with warm blankets for the winter mornings, rechargeable solar lights and en-suite bathrooms with hot-water safari bucket showers and flushing toilets. Individual verandas provide the perfect spot to while away an afternoon in privacy, watching the animals come and go along the river bank.
Activities at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp
Big game walks
Discover the sights, sounds and smells of the bush on a game walk with renowned guide and owner of Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, Alex Hunter.
Cultural and community visits
The staff at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is drawn from the communities surrounding the conservancy and is always eager to share their culture and history. Visit a local school or village for a rewarding experience that reveals a little more about the workings of the conservancy and daily life in the area.
Learn about the varied animal species and birdlife of the conservancy during morning and evening game drives with an expert guide, handpicked from the surrounding community. Our vehicles are open with a canvas canopy to give you the best viewing possible. Do remember that Ol Pejeta is at an altitude of 1 800 metres and so it gets extremely cold at night and in the early mornings, especially between June and September: wear plenty of warm layers that you can peel off as the day warms up.
You will have a unique opportunity to spend time with the researchers in the conservancy, learning about and tracking the lions that live here. Information gathered is passed directly to the Ol Pejeta Ecological Department in order to further understand these magnificent predators.
Night game drives
When the sun descends, use a powerful spotlight to track the nocturnal species and discover the magic of the Kenya’s nightlife.
Visits to Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary
Fully incorporated into the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary remains the only place in Kenya where this highly endangered species can be seen. Over 40 chimps rescued from the bush-meat industry live in troops on either side of the Ewaso Nyiro River, in a project that aims to preserve chimpanzees and their habitats through public education.
Visits to the Endangered Species Enclosure
The Endangered Species Enclosure is home to Ol Pejeta’s new family member, our southern white rhino calf. Abandoned by his mother, we are now looking out for this baby’s welfare. Enjoy a rare experience and spend quality time with the calf, and interact with his caregivers as they prepare his milk bottles and help to feed him. After interacting with the baby white rhino, you will also be given exclusive behind scene chance to meet, Sudan, Najin and Fatu the world’s last remaining three northern white rhinos.
