Ol Pejeta’s six traditional East African safari tents offer an excellent base from which to explore the secrets of this renowned conservancy – from pioneering conservation projects to spectacular sightings of black and white rhino and the Big Five. Ol Pejeta is the first choice for discerning safari veterans looking for a luxury bush camp and to understand and enjoy the very best of world-leading conservation practice. Here you will share your space with the last two surviving northern white rhino in the world.

Description

Ol Pejeta lies on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in the south of the Laikipia region. Commanding magnificent views of the jagged peaks of Mount Kenya the six comfortable tents are an excellent base from which to discover the renowned Ol Pejeta Conservancy and the last sightings of white and black rhino.

Ol Pejeta Camp is certainly one of the most authentic bush camps we have stayed at in Kenya. It can offer great flexibility due to its small size and focuses on good food and guiding. Its informal, homely approach doesn’t detract from your surroundings and you feel fully immersed in the African bush. These qualities make it ideal for seasoned Africa visitors and adventurous travellers.

The six desert brown safari tents are dotted throughout the nearby bush. All are spacious and set apart from each other. The thick vegetation in between and rustic dividing fences makes each tent feel really private. A family tent is also available. Children of any age are welcome at Ol Pejeta.

The veranda features a small table and two wooden armchairs with cushions and has views of the river. The main bedroom is of a comfortable size and simply decorated. The tents suit people who are not after a room with lots of frills but want it to be comfortable and spacious. Each has a canvas floor with a couple of rugs, a large bed with bedside tables and shelving to store and hang clothing. Solar power lights the rooms and there are plugs for you to charge your batteries.

The en-suite bathroom is located through a canvas flap behind the bedroom. This includes a double basin on a simple wooden stand with cold running water.
