Ol Pejeta Bushcamp


... is located in the Laikipia South area of north-central Kenya.

Ol Pejeta is a 400 square kilometre fenced wildlife conservancy which forms part of a critical buffer zone between the heavily populated arable farmland of central regions and the wilder ranges to the north.

Situated on the much quieter western side of the conservancy, Ol Pejeta Bushcamp is a traditional tented camp with a comfortable tented mess and several large guest tents, in a riverside setting which is particularly good for elephants.

Activities include vehicle safari and walking safari inside the conservancy, plus visits to the chimpanzee and rhino sanctuaries. Tracking white rhino on foot is a particular speciality.

The experience is greatly enhanced by the fact that the camp is personally hosted by owner Alex Hunter, who is very good at getting guests involved with the various conservation projects around the conservancy, such as animal tagging and rhino tracking.

The main potential downsides are that Ol Pejeta is a fully fenced reserve, with human habitation and the town of Nanyuki in close proximity. The reserve is rather tame and over-managed and suffers from high visitor traffic, although it is more quiet on the western side. The chimpanzee sanctuary here is particularly poor. The camp itself is relatively simple.
