The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 360 square kilometer not-for-profit wildlife conservancy in Laikipia, Kenya on the equator west of Nanyuki, between the foothills of the Aberdares and Mount Kenya. The Conservancy is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa and is home to three of the world’s last remaining four northern white rhinos moved here from the Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic. It also hosts the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary.
Among the wildlife that can be found here are the Big 5, rare and endangered species like the African wild dog, Jackson’s hartebeest, Grevy’s zebra, cheetah, and the common ones like the giraffe, elephants, baboons, hippos, eland, dik dik, impalas, and silver backed jackal. There are also over 300 species of birds in the conservancy.
