Day-Trip to Ol Pejeta Conservancy Description
Experience the wild as it was meant to be at Ol Pejeta Conservancy! Located just 3 hours and 30 minutes away from Nairobi, this 90,000 acre wildlife oasis is located on the equator between the Aberdares range and Mount Kenya. Once a cattle ranch, Ol Pejeta is now home to a variety of rare animals including the ‘Big Five’, plenty of birds, and even chimpanzees who have been rescued from abusive or captive situations.
Take in breathtaking panoramic views of Mt. Kenya with her snow-capped peaks when you visit – all while helping preserve endangered species like white and black rhinos through Ol Pejeta’s conservation efforts. Or if you’re feeling particularly daring: take part in an overnight safari experience that includes night game drives & lion tracking for unforgettable memories!
