Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is a relaxed tented camp set along the narrow Ewaso Ngiro River. The main mess tent overlooks the Ol Pejeta plains on the other side of the river. Sip your morning coffee while watching weaver birds flutter around the fever trees outside and spend evenings with a glass of wine by the fireplace.
The campfire is where guests can gather to share stories and get to know one another after the afternoon game drive. Tucked up in bed later at night, listen out for the conservancy’s lions roaring to each other.
There are seven tents (including one family tent) at Ol Pejeta. Each has anen suite with flushing toilets and hot water bucket showers.
Beds are snug with extra blankets and a hot-water bottle slipped in during turndown. The tents have spacious decks where guests can while away a few hours in the afternoon, just listening the sounds of the bush.
Homemade meals are served communally in our mess tent. They source their produce from a local women’s co-op or other regional farmers. Breakfast is a spread of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals and muffins or hot options including omelettes or bacon and eggs.
If you’re on a walking safari or a longer game drive, have breakfast in the bush, set up under a shady tree. Lunch is a buffet of pasta or pizza with salad, and dinner is a three-course affair — curry night is always popular!
Start the day bright and early with a wake-up call and tea or coffee. Enjoy breakfast before departing for your morning game drive (or set out a little earlier and take a picnic breakfast). Arrive back in camp mid-morning, with a chance to freshen up before lunch.
Refuel with afternoon tea and then depart for an afternoon/evening game drive with sundowners. Arrive back at camp in time for drinks and dinner; the perfect chance to unwind after a long day in the bush.
Ol Pejeta is an excellent choice for families with children. There are loads of activities for children, such as playing hide-and-seek with the Ol Pejeta anti-poaching dogs. Many activities also have a conservation element, teaching children about the threats facing wildlife and ecosystems across Kenya and beyond, and what they can do to help.
Acitivites available include: Game drives, bush walks, lion tracking, rhino visit, horseriding, canine anti-poaching visit, cycle safaris, cultural experience (some at extra cost).
