Words cannot possibly describe what an amazing place Ol Pejeta is….The Conservancy itself is stunning and home to some of the world’s most amazing creatures. Their efforts towards conservation is heartwarming and makes me feel truly hopeful. The Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, headed by Azina and her capable team, was nothing short of superb! Top notch customer service from some of the kindest people you could ever meet. We enjoyed every thing and every moment of our stay! Memories made there will live in my heart forever. ❤️ A huge thanks to our guides Rufus (Nairobi) and Nelson (Ol Pejeta) !!!!! 1000% recommend!

Azina and her team have it down! Great food, great wildlife and great staff. All set within a wonderful conservancy. Our favorites were the experience with anti-poaching dogs and the Rhinos! Thanks for starting off our vacation with such great care.

The staff go out of their way to make sure you feel at home. Their warmth and kindness, helpfulness is sincere and touching. Ezina, Nelson (our guide), Jonathan, Duncan, Chef James and although I don't recall the names of the others, honestly all of them made our stay memorable. They gave us a special Masai performance the night before we checked out and it was truly fascinating to see them all come together to sing and dance! The camps are very clean, there's warm water, hot water bottles to make sure you have a warm night's sleep, clean towels, beautiful views of the wildlife from all tents. There's a lovely fire place in the dining and common area. The guide, Nelson was extremely professional, kind, knowledgeable and humble. He went out of his way to make sure we had good game drives and gave us a lot of interesting information of the wildlife and conservancy. Ezina, Jonathan and staff were very accommodating and helpful. We had a lot of requests and requirements and they very patiently helped us with everything. Wonderful stay overall and highly recommend it.

We took a trip to Kenya, and the focus and hype was a lot on Maasai Mara. But the first place we visited was Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, and truthfully after traveling through Kenya this camp definitely has my heart. Nelson, our guide, was the nicest, kindest, most knowledgeable and passionate guide we found throughout our safari trip. Maggie was such a pleasure to be around, and while I cannot recall rest of the crew’s name, each and every one made our stay comfortable and memorable. Thanks to Nelson, our game viewing was excellent. He often went out of his way to ensure we saw as many animals as possible, a particular highlight being quickly finding a cheetah near our airstrip while we had 15 mins left for our departure! We also participated in lion tracking, which was very informative and fun and got to see the most adorable lion cubs. The highlight of course, was the last two remaining northern white rhinos, and the blind black rhino Baraka. The camp ensured all our transfers and activities happened smoothly, and the conservancy itself is doing a fantastic job. The camp is fenced, and the tents were extremely comfortable, clean and well maintained. At night, they slipped in hot water bags under our blankets which we very much appreciated. We slept to the sounds of lions at night, and woke up to hippos swimming and grazing outside our tent. One afternoon while we just relaxed in the tent enjoying the view after a game drive, we saw an elephant with two of her babies stroll outside our tent. The fence is ideally placed, at a distance where you can see / hear wildlife, yet feel completely secure. The food was great too! The chef was so accommodating and kind throughout. I highly recommend staying here for a more private, exclusive and 1:1 with nature kinda experience, that isn’t always possible at the Mara.

This was our second visit to Ol Pejeta; that says it all! It didn't disappoint. Quite apart from the wonderful game drives with Duma, the team in the camp were absolutely wonderful; nothing was too much trouble. Moses, the camp manager is an accomplished host and makes everyone feel very welcome. Accommodation is in very comfortable tents with a "bathroom/dressing room" area. As the camp is situated on the banks of a river, there is always something to see. The Mess area where the meals are taken has a comfortable sitting space where you can relax (with a drink?) and take in the ambience. Ol Pejeta is known for its rhinos and it's certain that you will see them in abundance. A poignant memorial to the animals that have been killed for their horns has been created in the conservancy. A thought provoking moment. We spent three nights in the camp on both occasions and would certainly recommend others to do the same.

This camp was excellent. The tents were well maintained and very luxurious as far as camping goes. The staff was extremely attentive and the food was excellent. Moses the site manager was always around to help if need be. The best part was our game drive guide Yusuf. He was extemely knowledgeable with regards to the animals and the conservancy. We saw a ton of wildlife that with out his expertise we would not have seen. His enthusiasm was infectious.

Here with my family and everything at the camp was amazing, waking up and being with the animals is an unmatched experience that I’ll always remember. Everything at the camp - food, service, rooms - greatly exceeded expectations! Our guide was also amazing ensuring we saw all the wildlife we wanted to see. Couldn’t recommend this place enough!
