Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is a very comfortable traditional bush camp set in nearly 100,000 acres in the Laikipia region of central Kenya, right on the Equator.
The camp has six tents with twin or double beds, accommodating a total of 12 guests in a traditional, simple and comfortable safari. There is also a family tent sleeping up to four, and temporary tents can be erected for larger groups. There are no permanent structures and the aim is to make the camp's environmental impact as low as possible. The tents are furnished with beds, re-chargeable solar lights, en suite loos, washstands on the tent veranda and safari bucket showers (of any preferred temperature by guests).
Fresh bread is baked daily in the traditional charcoal safari oven (using eco-charcoal made on site), and a wide variety of salads, meat and vegetarian food is offered in camp and for bush breakfasts and picnics.
This small bush camp offers guests the opportunity for a unique kind of safari experience in Kenya. Activities on offer include walking and tracking as well as game drives in 4x4 vehicles and the chance to get involved with the behind the scenes day to day running of a conservancy in Kenya. In fact, as of a couple of years ago Ol Pejeta Conservancy became the largest rhino sanctuary outside of South Africa with the highest ratio of game-to-area of any park or reserve in Kenya. Rare breeds on the conservancy include 80 Black rhino, five white rhino, extremely rare Grevy zebra, and Jackson Hartebeest.
