There are ten widely spaced rooms, each housed in a stone-built cottage with a high-vaulted thatched roof and a deck.

Featuring luxurious queen-sized beds and hand-made furniture made from the cedar fence posts that once delineated the colonial ranch, each room has its own color scheme and has been named after the fabulous birds that flit around the gardens. Each cottage features a charming bathroom with stunning views. The selection of rooms feature twin-bedded and double-bedded room.

Location

This safari will take place at Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Nyahururu, and Lake Elementaita.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy

From a working cattle ranch in colonial Kenya, to a trailblazer of conservation innovation, the story of Ol Pejeta is as enchanting as it is inspirational. Today, Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa and home to three of the world’s last remaining northern white rhino. It is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees in a sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market.

It has some of the highest predator densities in Kenya and still manages a very successful livestock program. Ol Pejeta also seeks to support the people living around its borders to ensure that wildlife conservation translates to better education, healthcare, and infrastructure for the next generation of wildlife guardians.

Rhino Conservation

Ol Pejeta is home to three of the world’s last remaining three northern white rhinos and a sanctuary for 113 critically endangered black rhinos. The conservancy employs highly trained rhino protection squads, partners with international veterinary experts, and ensures data is gathered regularly on each individual animal. Steps like these ensure that people remain a role model for rhino conservation in East Africa.

Chimpanzee Sanctuary

The chimpanzees’ natural home range spans from Senegal on the West African coast, through the central forested belt of Africa, to Uganda. They are not native to Kenya, but when a rescue center in Burundi had to be closed due to the civil war outbreak in 1993, Ol Pejeta opened its doors. The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary was established with an agreement between the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), and the Jane Goodall Institute.

The aim is to provide lifelong refuge to orphaned and abused chimpanzees from West and Central Africa. Over the last decade, Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary has been compelled to keep accepting chimpanzees rescued from traumatic situations, bringing the total number of chimpanzees in the sanctuary to 36. Many are confiscated from cramped and unnatural living conditions and many arrive with horrific injuries sustained from abuse at the hands of humans.

At Sweetwaters, they get a chance to start over. With 24-hour veterinary support and a stimulating quarantine enclosure, chimpanzees arriving at the sanctuary are carefully nursed back to health. When they are ready, they are introduced into one of the two large groups in the sanctuary who live in vast, natural enclosures separated by the Ewaso Nyiro River.

The chimps have set feeding times and return to their indoor enclosures at night. Other than that, they spend their days exploring, climbing, socializing, and learning to be chimpanzees all over again.
