Pelican HousePelican House

Pelican House is the perfect place to enjoy down time with friends and family. Overlooking the serene Pelican Dam, this cosy self-catering cottage sleeps eight, but can sleep 12 on request. Located in the east of the Conservancy, Pelican House is within easy reach of some of Ol Pejeta’s best wild experiences – including the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Baraka the blind black rhino, and Morani's Restaurant.

The Pelican Dam is frequently visited by a variety of wildlife, especially in the dry season. The verandah looks out over the tranquil water and is the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast with the dawn chorus, or a well-deserved sundowner after a day’s safari. Pelican House is the perfect base to explore Ol Pejeta, and gives you the freedom to make and change your own itineraries.

Pelican House offers comfortable accommodation. The house sleeps eight (8) people in the main house with a double suite in the garden separate to main house with own bathroom. The main house has two large en-suite double rooms, and a third double bedroom with separate bathroom. 4 extra beds available on request. Download the Pelican House Floor Plan here.
