Ol Pejeta Bush Camp

Location: Laikipia, Meru & Central Kenya | Kenya

Home to guide Alex Hunter, and his delightful wife Diana, Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is that all too rare beast: a proper, old-fashioned bush camp that shows guests so much more than just the wildlife. If you want to know what it’s like to live in the bush, and work alongside the animals, this is for you: as far from standard as a safari can be.
Perfect forGetting under the skin of Africa, more than just a safari.
In the knowIf you are lucky enough you will be able to get up and close with a black rhino as they often have rangers guarding them who will be more than happy to tell you all about them!

Hotel Overview

Rooms at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp

Guests who come to Ol Pejeta are here for the wilderness and authenticity, so the tents reflect this - who wants accessories to get in the way of an adventure? Having said this, they are still designed for ultimate comfort for you to fall into after a day in the sun.

Food and Facilities

There’s a mess tent with a few books to snuggle up with on a lazy afternoon, and a simple dining tent for meals. From our own experience, we can testify that food is definitely a highlight here-one of the most delicious lunches we’ve eaten on safari in a long time. Salads are delightfully fresh, the meat is mouthwatering, and much of it is obtained locally. During meals Alex and Diana are on hand, entertaining guests with an irresistible mine of information and stories about their lives in Africa.

Activities at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp

Staying at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is about so much more than game viewing (though there’s plenty of that around). It’s an insight into living (and playing) in the bush, and a behind-the-scenes look at conservation. There are game drives and bush walks, but also visits to the chimpanzee sanctuary, tracking radio collared lions, and talks by the researchers on the conservancy. You’ll also be able to see how conservation fits in with the community, from grazing cattle alongside wild animals to visits to the local villages.
