For those of you who enjoy the outdoors, there is nothing better than escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life and waking up to peace and tranquility. Take a break from the television and live amongst wildlife in its natural habitat. Enjoy cooking by the campfire and eating outdoors. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy offers five unique campsites which are booked exclusively:

  1. Hippo Hide – Situated on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River visitors to this campsite get close to nature enjoying wild scenic views. The campsite is located a few meters from the hippo hide walkway making it easy for campers to take relaxing walks along the river bank while viewing hippos in their natural habitat.
  2. Murera Donga - This secluded campsite surrounded by acacia trees is situated next to the marsh area in the Conservancy which due to the lush vegetation attracts wildlife throughout the year. The dense bush surrounding the camp opens into grassland and provides a great environment for a variety of wildlife species adding to the beauty of the campsite.
  3. Ewaso Campsite – Hidden behind bushy vegetation and acacia trees, this campsite on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River is a serene haven offering magnificent views of elephants and other wildlife species as they gather across the river for water.
  4. Ngobit – Situated in the wilderness area along the Ngobit River visitors to this campsite will find peace and solitude to rejuvenate the soul and enjoy wonderful game drives where only few vehicles venture.
  5. Olerai Campsite - Located along the Ewaso Nyiro River, Olerai has the two unique features; one being a little island that’s a perfect for a sundowner and the other an extended river ideal for fishing. It is regularly frequented by herds of elephants and impalas.
