Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Boasting one of the biggest black rhino population in East Africa, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a great safari destination in central Kenya. It’s also the only place where you can see chimpanzees and three critically endangered white rhinos. But primarily, Ol Pejeta is great for a Big Five (lion, Cape buffalo, African elephant, leopard, and rhinoceros) game drives and exploring the most beautiful landscapes that Kenya has to offer.

The park is well equipped for visitors with one picnic-style takeaway and one restaurant. Visitors can also visit the rhino cemetery, equator sign and take photos in the two hides.
