Ol Pejeta Conservancy Entrance Fees 2024

In this article, we look at Ol Pejeta Conservancy Entrance Fees in 2023. Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East and Central Africa and home to the last two remaining northern white rhinos on the planet. It is also the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, in a sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market. It has some of the highest predator densities in Kenya and manages a very successful livestock programme.

Ol Pejeta also supports the people living around its borders to ensure wildlife conservation, which translates to better education, healthcare, and infrastructure for the next generation of wildlife guardians. Ol Pejeta means “place of burning.”. Hundreds of years ago, the pastoralist communities named it that because they used the area to kill ticks by burning the grass.

History Of Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Ol Pejeta has a long and rich history. By the late 1960s, poaching in Kenya by colonial hunters had taken a serious toll on wildlife populations. Elephant and rhino numbers were plummeting, and although elephant hunting was declared illegal in Kenya in 1973, numbers continued to decline. This concerned one of Ol Pejeta’s previous owners, Lonrho Africa, who established the Sweetwaters Game Reserve in 1988 as a sanctuary for black rhinos and other wildlife. Over time, the Game Reserve expanded to cover 90,000 acres—now Ol Pejeta.

In 2003, Ol Pejeta was purchased by Fauna and Flora International, together with a generous benefactor. The day-to-day operations are undertaken by Ol Pejeta Ranching Ltd, a commercial business that uses agriculture and tourism to create surpluses wholly for reinvestment in conservation and community development.
