Love big cats and want to be involved in their conservation? Now you can! With our lion tracking activity, visitors will have a unique opportunity to learn about, and track the lions of Ol Pejeta Conservancy and contribute towards conservation efforts. Guests can participate in helping us to gather vital research information needed to monitor the collared lions. In the event that the collared lions are inaccessible, other lion sightings are reported and the same identifying features such as whisker spots, ear tears and nose spotting recorded. It is a great way to learn about lions and all of the information gathered is passed on to the Ol Pejeta Ecological Monitoring Department. Guests remain in the vehicle at all times. Drinking water, snacks, lion ID sheets and pens will be provided and we would recommend that clients come with their cameras and binoculars. This Conservation Activity is available daily, between: 06:30 - 09:30 and 15:30 – 18:30. It can be booked directly through your accommodation provider, and is also available for people visiting the conservancy on day trips.

The African lion population has declined by 30-50% in just over two decades, a reduction largely due to habitat loss and conflict with humans. Statistics reveal that the national population of lions in Kenya is reduced by an average of 100 lions each year! To come up with solutions aimed at mitigating the human-lion conflict, conservationists monitor lion movements through collars. You will have the opportunity to be involved in this crucial research.
