 Activities in Ol Pejeta

 

Meet Baraka the Black Rhino

Baraka was one of the first rhinos born on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. After losing an eye to an infection following a fight he unfortunately developed a cataract in the other eye and subsequently became completely blind. With a low chance of survival on his own, Baraka was moved from the wild to a 100 acre enclosure in order to ensure his safety.

Baraka is now an ambassador for his species – and a popular attraction at Ol Pejeta. There is a feeding platform from which visitors can get up close to view and feed him, an experience not to be missed. Baraka receives visitors daily from 9.30am to 6.00pm, with feeding times three times per day.

 

The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Formed in 1993 as a joint alliance between The Jane Goodall Institute and Kenyan Wildlife Services this sanctuary was established as a refuge for orphaned and confiscated chimpanzees and is the only place in Kenya where non-indigenous chimpanzees can be seen.

The Sanctuary provides a permanent refuge in as natural environment as possible – the 40 or so chimpanzees are protected on an island and access to see them is by boat.

 

The cost of a visit to Baraka and to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary is already included within the Conservancy fee.

 

Ol Pejeta Endangered Species Boma

The Endangered Species Boma is a must-see for any trip to Ol Pejeta. Here visitors can meet and learn about the Northern White Rhinos which are critically endangered with only six left in the world. Three of them are here and visitors can have the unique experience of seeing these majestic creatures up close. The boma also has six southern white rhinos, two black rhinos and numerous Grevy’s zebras and Jackson’s hartebeest.

Visitors are limited and only two vehicles per day have access – so pre-booking is recommended. 

Price: US $15 per person for 3 or more people, or a total fee of $35 is charged for 1 or 2 people. All funds raised go directly towards the care of the four Northern White Rhinos.
