We have 10 infra-red cameras around Ol Pejeta Conservancy. These cameras are motion triggered, and have been set up on key wildlife pathways. Some of the cameras were donated by WWF while others are borrowed from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

These cameras allow us to gain an insight into the behaviour of many of the Conservancy's wildlife species without disturbing them. We are learning about why and when they move to different areas, as well as gaining an intimate insight into the behaviour of nocturnal animals we would otherwise miss.

The key species captured are elephant herds, lions, hyenas, zebra and in some cases jackals, wild dogs, and a few antelope species.
