Six traditional safari tents with twin or double beds are dotted along the Ewaso Nyiro River, featuring warm blankets, rechargeable solar lights, en suite bathrooms and private verandas overlooking the river bank. A dedicated family tent sleeps up to four guests.
Morning and afternoon game drives in open-sided vehicles are conducted in the wildlife-rich Ol Pejeta Conservancy. As well as a chance to see the ‘Big Five’, the conservancy has been successful in its protection of rare and endangered species - including the northern, southern white and black rhino, Grevy’s zebra and Jackson’s hartebeest. Using spotlights, night game drives will reveal the conservancy’s nocturnal creatures.
As well as game drives, you can join Alex Hunter, owner of Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, for an exploration of the conservancy’s eco-systems on foot. He will show you how to identify animal track and introduce you to the flora and fauna of the region. Why not join the researchers at Ol Pejeta Conservancy for a fascinating experience tracking lions? For research and conservation purposes, some of the lions have been collared so that their habits and movements can relay vital information to the Ecological Department.
Ol Pejeta Bush Camp welcomes children over the age of five years and there are plenty of activities to keep even the most active youngsters entertained. They will get to spot some of the planet’s rarest animals with a visit to the northern and southern white rhino enclosures, go tracking lions with researchers and learn about apes at the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary, home to rescued chimps.
