Ol Pejeta Bush Camp

Kenya

  • Owner-run camp with excellent service
  • Wide range of activities
  • First rate guiding
  • Intimate atmosphere with just 6 tents
  • Delicious food cooked over the camp fire

Open: The camp is open annually from 1 June to 30 April.

Location: Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is within the 100,000 acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia. It is a 45 minute flight to Nanyuki from Nairobi, then about a 45 minute drive to the gate from Nanyuki. It is northwest of Nairobi, west of Mount Kenya.

Rooms: The 6 tents can be configured to have double or twin beds, and there is also a family tent too. All the tents overlook the river, and it is a very eco-friendly camp which uses solar lighting and bucket showers for which hot water is brought at your request. Bathrooms have flushing toilets. Your basin is a washstand on your tent veranda.

Activities: This is all about a stunning wildlife safari experience, but very firmly connected to conservation. You can decide to just enjoy the daily wildlife activities - day and night game drives, bush walks, visit the hide near a waterhole and salt lick, visit the chimp sanctuary - but if you are interested, you can also see a little more of the conservation side of things at Ol Pejeta (depending on what work is going on). For example, you can visit the research and monitoring team to hear about their work, go out tracking the radio-collared lions.

Facilities: There is a large lounge and dining area is tented and set on a raised wooden platform designed to provide excellent views of Mount Kenya. There are battery charging facilities in this main tent. The camp offers a laundry service.

Dining: You'll be surprised at the gorgeous meals that can be produced on a campfire!

Children: Children of all ages are welcome.

Health: This is a malarial area and you will need to check with your GP or travel clinic with regards to advice on other vaccinations.

Communication: There is Wi-Fi in some areas of the camp. Mobile signals cannot be relied upon.

Notes: Disabled guests can be accommodated.
