Laikipia, where the Ol Pejeta Conservancy is located, suffers from a poor road network.
As a result many areas become impassable during the rainy seasons. This makes it impossible for farmers to deliver their produce to market or for sick people to reach medical assistance. Working with local government Ol Pejeta has used its own earth-moving machinery to rehabilitate and improve local access roads.
Supported road projects include:
- Re-surfacing of Marura community road – 7km
- Resurfacing of the Sweetwaters to Nanyuki road – 9km
