Kenya

Located in the Laikipia district of Kenya and nestled in the shadow of Mount Kenya, Ol Pejeta is a non-profit wildlife conservancy supporting endangered species, tourism and community outreach.

The Ol Pejeta mission statement reads as:

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy works to conserve wildlife, provide a sanctuary for great apes and to generate income through wildlife tourism and complementary enterprises for re-investment in conservation and community development. Working closely with the Government of Kenya, our conservation activities are carried out to the highest international standards.”

Ol Pejeta is East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary and is also home to southern white rhinos and the last 3 surviving northern white rhinos in the world – the most endangered mammal in the world today.

Covering more than 350 square kilometres Ol Pejeta is home to many more animals than just their rhinos. The conservancy also plays a vital role in the conservation of a number of other endangered species, including:

  • Grevy’s zebra
  • Lion
  • Cheetah
  • Leopard
  • African hunting dog
  • Elephant
  • Many game species

    

    

Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Ol Pejeta is also home to the famous Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary. Despite not being endemic to Kenya, Sweetwaters provides a life long refuge for rescued and orphaned chimpanzees from western and central Africa.

Your Donations will help maintain a safe and natural habitat for the rhinos of Ol Pejeta.

By working together we can stop rhino poaching and make sure that we save the rhino for future generations to enjoy.
