Ol Pejeta Game Sanctuary
We will pick you up from your Nairobi hotel or Nairobi airport in the morning
Our journey will take us over the central Kenya highlands with stop overs to visit local coffee and tea plantations.
One special stop we’ll make is at Katrina, to visit and explore the largest open-air market in East Africa.
The deep greens of the forests at Aberdare National Park will greet your arrival as will the cool climate and mountain breezes.
Check in at the tree hotel where you can relax at the balcony as you watch the wildlife below, drawn to the saltlick/waterhole located there.
The Park hosts a variety of animals – elephants, rhinos, hyenas, baboons, monkeys, buffalo, warthogs and the elusive leopard.
If you’re lucky you might spot a rare giant forest hog, a bongo (large antelope), or African wild cat.
Overnight at either The Ark or Treetops Lodge.
Meal plan: Lunch, Dinner.
After breakfast, we’ll exit Aberdare Park and head north with views of Mt. Kenya, the country’s highest peak.
As we journey to Ol Pejeta we’ll travel through the farmland of central Kenya, passing local homesteads.
There are six resident prides of lions at Ol Pejeta and many of our guests are lucky to spot them.
The Park also hosts a number of cheetah and leopards. Also, unique here, packs of African wild dogs.
You’ll also find giraffe, impala, gazelle, zebra, hippo, monkey, and baboon throughout the sanctuary.
But of special note, Ol Pejeta hosts and harbours a uniquely large population of black rhinos in a specially protected game corridor.
And perhaps one of the most unique facilities in East Africa is the park’s Sweetwater’s Chimpanzee Sanctuary. Here you’ll view rescued chimps being nourished back to health and living freely in their natural habitat. It’s the only place in Kenya where you can see and enjoy these lively creatures.
Dinner and overnight at either Ol Pejeta House or Serena Sweetwater’s Morani wing.
Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
The early morning light is beautiful at Ol Pejeta and we’ll take advantage of the time and the moment, with a game drive viewing the stirring wildlife.
