Olpejeta Conservancy & Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary Day Tour

USD 450 per person (based on 2 people travelling together)

Experience the wonders of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a privately-owned wildlife sanctuary just a short drive from Nairobi. It’s home to lions, buffalo, elephants, leopards, and rhinos. Ol Pejeta stands out as Kenya’s ultimate predator haven with the highest density of these magnificent creatures. This tour guarantees encounters with lions, cheetahs, hyenas, and the elusive African wild dog. Plus, you’ll practically be guaranteed sightings of rhinos and chimpanzees in renowned animal sanctuaries within the vast 365 square-kilometer (141 square-mile) reserve. Your journey begins early in the morning with a pick-up from your chosen location, be it your hotel or another preferred spot. Along the way to Ol Pejeta, you’ll be introduced to traditional Kenyan coffee and tea plantations, with a chance to enjoy views of Mt. Kenya and its snow-capped peak, weather permitting. The drive to Ol Pejeta takes about 3 to 4 hours, making it the nearest destination to Nairobi where you can witness all of Africa’s Big Five. The reserve boasts six lion prides, nearly 80 lions in total, and around 30 cheetahs. During your journey through the park, you’ll have the opportunity to spot a wide range of East African wildlife, including giraffes, vervet monkeys, baboons, hippos, impalas, gazelles, dik-diks, and zebras. Ol Pejeta is renowned for its efforts to save endangered wildlife. The rhino sanctuary, the largest protected population in East Africa, is home to 100 black rhinos. Additionally, the last two northern white rhinos left on Earth reside here. Visits to this special enclosure are available twice a day, at 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., although visits to the Northern White Rhinos are not possible on day trips. Within Ol Pejeta, you’ll find a unique opportunity to interact with these intelligent and affectionate creatures. The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates orphaned and abandoned chimpanzees, providing them with spacious, natural enclosures where they can live freely. The sanctuary also hosts a variety of less-seen, unique wildlife, such as the tree hyrax, white-tailed mongoose, black-fronted duiker, mole rat, bushbuck, waterbuck, and eland, all set against the backdrop of majestic Mount Kenya.
