Are you a thrill chaser? Do you love the build-up of anticipation and the ensuing excitement when you stumble across a predator on your game drive?
Then join our research team and play cat and mouse with Africa’s biggest cat – the lion! Some lions on Ol Pejeta are collared for monitoring purposes helping management make crucial decisions on their conservation. Booking a unique lion tracking safari will provide you with close-up insight into lion research on Ol Pejeta, a Conservancy with one of the highest predator densities in Kenya.
Lion tracking is offered in the morning between 6.30am and 9.30am or afternoon between 3.30pm and 6.30pm when the lions are most active. It costs USD 35 per vehicle or USD 15 per person whichever is greater.
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.
