Our conservation efforts today will only count if the next generation is invested, engaged and empowered to carry them forward. We welcome 110,000 visitors through our gates annually, and it is our hope that each and every visitor goes home inspired and informed.
As well as offering one of the best safari experiences in Kenya, Ol Pejeta aims to provide opportunities for education and involvement. Visitors will find interactive material and knowledgeable staff at the following places:
- Morani Information Centre
- Hippo Hide Information Centre and riverwalk
- Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary Information Centre and forest walk
- Rhino Cemetery
- The Equator point
Each is free to enter, and well worth working in to your itinerary. Grown ups wanting to get their hands dirty can sign up for one of our unique wild experiences – where you will be actively contributing to our conservation efforts by tracking lions or training our anti-poaching dogs.
For the 25,000 school children we welcome each year, we have launched Conservation in Action programme. This is tailored for students from the age of 4 and above and offers them an opportunity to get behind the scenes with Ol Pejeta staff, and learn about what it takes to protect wildlife. Children can help inspect the chimpanzee enclosure for damages while learning about the plight of our wild cousins or help clean out the endangered species pen and chat to the people in charge of safeguarding the last three northern white rhinos on the planet.
Parents can also sign up their kids to become a Junior Ranger for a day; a specialised program for kids between 4-12 that immerses them into the world of a wildlife ranger.
