About
At the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy, we are making our contribution to the work being done by the government and the private sector to restore, preserve and protect the region’s natural habitats and wildlife. Everyday, the wildlife and ecosystems which make Africa so special are put at further risk from human interference.At the heart of our effort is the critically endangered Mountain Bongo whose population in the wild has drastically declined to less than 100. No species should reach such a precarious state. The conservancy has succeeded in breeding and rewilding these critically endangered animals, restoring their habitat, and returning them to their natural home in the wild.At our animal orphanage, everyone can visit and see first-hand the impact this kind of environmental negligence has on many other different wildlife species. It is a live classroom, where animals that have been injured, orphaned or displaced by habitat destruction are brought to be treated and rehabilitated

The guide showed us all the animals they were taking care of. I fed a monkey on my shoulder a banana and I also fed the lamas and ostrich

An amazing place where the animals who didn't have much luck are well protected and taking care of. The whole place is really beautiful, clean and well maintained. The animals look really happy there and you can be really close to them! It's unique chance to feed a turtle, little gazelle or an ostrich! The people working there are just awesome. Kind, knowledgeable and lovely. We spent this time with Andrew and he was just awesome.

It was a relaxing trip, Mt Kenya openibg up to us, with it unique wildlife is a great place to be. Those white zebras are something to see. Fairmont Mt Kenya Country Club is the best place to stay.

This nature conservancy is not to be missed. Where else can you get licked by a cheetah, feed a baby gazelle or pet a warthog?
It’s a great way to spend some time up close to animals and actually pet them. The pigmy hippo won my heart and it was great fun feeding an ostrich!

Everyone in Our group loved this place. There are a wide variety of animals here, either orphaned or born with a disability, and all pretty tame, such at they are allowed to roam free inside, and the people can feed them (as we all did). The guide was excellent and clearly loved his animals too.

We saw a leopard, 2 cheetahs, various monkeys, llamas, a Seychelles giant tortoise, and much else, including an aged bongo (endangered).

Definitely worth a visit.

Did not enjoy my trip here - many animals are not going to be released, some can't but others i really do not see why they are there and did challenge the staff about it, I found some pens small and animals looked sad (cats & monkeys especially), the small wild cats just being used as kitten producers and living in small area. Not for me

In March 2022, we visited the Mount Kenya animal orphanage, which is located close to Nanyuki.
The main objective of the center is the survival in the wilderness of a very fine and critically endangered antelope: the bongo.
We were amazed by the huge job made by the keepers for animals well being. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Altogether, we highly recommend to visit the animal orphanage, especially for families with children.
