Ol Pejeta covers the majority of its operating costs from its own commercial revenues.
80% of this comes from tourism with over 70,000 visitors per year, and 20% comes from agriculture, mainly from the 7,500 head of cattle integrated into the conservancy. Fundraising and donations are, however, a vital part of work. It enables the investments we need into innovation and expansion, and often Ol Pejeta acts as a facilitator for investments directly into conservation and community development. Over the last year, Ol Pejeta has helped more than $1m pass from well-wishers and grant making organisations into Laikipia fences, schools and healthcare programmes.
