This is the legacy and fascination of Ol Pejeta Wildlife Sanctuary. But there’s so much more to see in this private reserve. All of Africa’s Big Five are here, just a short drive from Nairobi.
(220km: Apr: 3-4 Hrs.)
We’ll head out in our 4 x 4 Jeep for the Ol Pejeta Sanctuary. We’ll be traveling through Laikipia County toward the Aberdare/Mt. Kenya area, passing numerous farms along the way.
We’ll stop at coffee and tea plantations for a closer look and time permitting a local market.
Our route takes us directly across the equator and we’ll take a moment to stop and enjoy this unique spot, straddling the hemispheres.
At Ol Pejeta you’ll be amazed by the diversity of wildlife. Endangered rhinos plus the Big Five are all here as well as giraffe, hippo, impala, gazelle, zebra, jackal, hyena… even monkey and baboon.
This is also home to the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary within the reserve. It’s a place where rescued chimps are cared for and given free rein within their natural habitat. It’s the only place in Kenya where you can observe these playful and intelligent primates.
The sanctuary also features an endangered species enclosure. It’s big enough to go on a game drive and within its boundaries, you’ll spot rhinos and other rare animals like Grevy’s zebra and Jackson’s hartebeest.
You may want to take advantage of an optional visit to the local tribe’s people, the Maasai. At their village, you’ll get to meet these indigenous people and learn about their traditional lifestyle. Just ask your guide to set up a personalized tour.
You’ll spend the night at Sweetwaters or any other camp of your choice.
We’ll keep up with the monkeys, the birds and whoever else we meet as the morning light spreads over the sanctuary.
Later, we’ll enjoy breakfast at our accommodation and then continue tracking big game and perhaps some unusual sightings like the packs of wild African dogs known to inhabit the reserve.
We’ll make plans for lunch and then a final game drive as we head back to Nairobi.
We should arrive back in Nairobi toward early evening, and we’ll drop you off at your residence, hotel or Nairobi airport.
