Ol Pejeta Conservancy Birdwatching

Ol Pejeta Conservancy’s 90,000 acres are grazed by wildlife and livestock, in a partnership that is as beneficial to the grasslands as it is to the animals. Ol Pejeta Conservancy is known as the home of the last two Northern White rhinos and a sanctuary for the endangered Black rhinos. Additionally, the conservancy hosts a Chimpanzee sanctuary that offers refuge to abused and orphaned chimpanzees. The Laikipia region has the richest diversity of wildlife in Kenya outside of the Maasai Mara – and protected areas like Ol Pejeta are key to conserving this natural wonder. The key habitats found include open Red Oat grasslands, riverine vegetation along the Ngobit and Ewaso Ng’iro rivers, and extensive stands of Whistling Acacia all of which provide habitats for a wide range of bird species, including resident species and an ever-increasing number of Palearctic migrants, residents and intra –African migrants. Ol Pejeta has horse ride tours to see rhinos  and game drives for lion tracking, also night game viewing is allowed.
