The Gems of Laikipia- Kenya – Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Sweetwaters Giraffes

This is the best place on earth one can visit to have a glimpse of the White and black Rhinos!

Ol Pejeta Conservancy, located in the northern side of Kenya in a semi-arid region, is a typical model for conservation efforts in Africa. This massive ranch harbors Sweetwaters Game Reserve where Serena Sweetwaters Tented Camp and Ol Pejeta House are located.
Apart from sighting the second largest mammal on land, Rhinocerous , Ol Pejeta Conservancy harbours other “BIG FIVE” animals such as the Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Lion. Other savanna animals like the Grevy’s zebra, Jackson’s hartebeest, cheetah and chimpanzee abide.
The Conservancy is the home to Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary the only one of its kind in Kenya. This is where history and facts meet as you get to understand these human-like primates, with a 98.6% human DNA.
These dudes use tools like human beings to do things! They can use a stone to crack nuts; they peel an orange or banana and so on! The experience in this sanctuary is enormous and can only be experienced. The placards all over the place with messages can only tell you the struggle they have undergone to get the kind of shelter at “Sweetwaters!DSC03940
As a Rhino Sanctuary a story is told about the Black Rhino now deceased called Morani! The story sent the ranger into shedding tears while narrating the history of Morani the Rhino. However they have another of its kind though blind called Baraka.
Welcome to Sweetwaters and Ol Pejeta Conservancy for more and experience the true African hospitality at the Serena Sweetwaters Camp and Ol pejeta House.
