Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, Ol Pejeta Conservancy
Overlooked by the dramatic snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya, Ol Pejeta Conservancy is in central Kenya’s Laikipia County. It’s home to the two remaining northern white rhinos on the planet and many other endangered animals, all protected around the clock by dedicated rangers.
As with all Asilia camps, staying at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp allows guests to contribute to conservation. You can also get involved by helping with canine training or recording lion sightings for the research team. Seven spacious, eco-friendly tents are positioned along the Ewaso Ngiro River. The peaceful camp is staffed by our warm and hospitable team and is a great place for families, with activities like the Junior Ranger Programme to keep kids entertained and engaged.

Well... it's hard to find words to describe just how incredible this bush camp is. We were a family of 6 who are all very well traveled and have been lucky enough to stay at some amazing places but this may top them all. Ol Pej has a charm that you can only understand once you stay there. It's comfortable and beautiful without feeling pretentious or overly fancy which is exactly what we were after. The sweet, simple additions like hot water bottles at night and tea and granola before the safari drives in the early morning were the perfect touch. The staff were some of the kindest people we have ever met. Peter was a lovely host who made us feel right at home and the rest of the staff (too many to name!) couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. Our guides Duma and Michael are 2 amazing humans who have so much care and respect for the animals and environment and are full of knowledge. The food is SO delicious and healthy we couldn't stop talking about it for the rest of our trip! I would recommend this camp to absolutely anyone and I really do hope we can make it back here. Thank you! - emmarosegriffith
I traveled with my 10-year-old son and 70-year-old mother. We spent three nights at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp. We had one tent with 3 twin beds. We loved everything about our stay. The staff is amazing. The safari drives were fantastic. Our driver Abdullah was wonderful. The communal tent and food and drink were top notch. We enjoyed meeting our fellow travelers. The last day as I was reading on our porch, an entire elephant family appeared out of nowhere right on the opposite bank of the river. Just one of many delights at Ol Pejeta. - KLKranz
Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is like being with a family. Pete and Stacy, the managers and husband and wife, make you feel like part of a family. Eating is communal and one or both of them always join. The staff is superb and it goes without saying the animals also. It was a rare treat to see the last 2 White Northen Rhinos left on this planet. - Rita00331
