Owned and managed by legendary guide Alex Hunter, Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is an excellent base from which to discover the renowned Ol Pejeta Conservancy, from the pioneering conservation projects to the spectacular sightings of white and black rhino and rare Northern wildlife.
Sitting on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, commanding magnificent views to Mount Kenya, six traditional East African safari tents offer a true bush experience – low key and low impact but thoroughly comfortable.
All tents come complete with warm blankets for the winter mornings, rechargeable solar lights and en-suite bathrooms with hot-water safari bucket showers. Individual verandas provide the perfect spot to while away an afternoon in privacy, watching the animals come and go along the river bank.
The two communal tents looking out over the sprawling plains are the hub of the camp. Meals are enjoyed under canvas in the dining tent, while the breezy mess tent with its inviting sofas and armchairs encapsulates the friendly, relaxed atmosphere in camp. When darkness falls, evenings are spent around the fire, waiting to catch a glimpse of a rhino ambling down to drink at the river.
Alongside the traditional game drives and bush walks with Alex Hunter, activities from Ol Pejeta Bush Camp focus on the unique conservation projects in the conservancy. Visits to the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary – the only place in Kenya where this highly endangered species can be seen – and the Northern white rhino enclosure are both on offer, as well as mornings or afternoons spent with the local communities to gain an insight into the daily workings of the conservancy.
