Alex Hunter’s Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is set along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro river in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in the south of the Laikipia region. Low-key East African authenticity is the hallmark of the camp and the 6 tented suites are comfortable and full of character. Of the 6 rooms, 3 can be triples and 3 are doubles or twins and all come complete with warm blankets for the winter mornings, re-chargeable solar lights and en suite bathroom with safari bucket showers and flushing toilets. Thatched roofs offer a cooling shade and private verandas with safari chairs offer the perfect place to while away an afternoon. The two mess tents are cool and breezy and offer dining areas with impressive views of the wildlife at the salt lick on the opposite bank.
Ol Pejeta Bush Camp has ensuite tents. The style is of a traditional, simple, comfortable safari; the camp is built on an entirely eco-friendly design, there are no permanent structures and we make the camp’s environmental impact as low as possible. Tents are furnished with single/double/twin beds (duvets and blankets), re-chargeable solar lights which last around 6 hours per evening, ensuite loos, washstands on the tent veranda, and safari bucket showers (brought on request, of any preferred temperature by guests at any time of day!).

The superb Head Chef Gilbert Masha makes bread daily in the traditional charcoal safari oven (using eco-charcoal made on Ol Pejeta), and a wide variety of salads, meat and vegetarian food in camp and for bush breakfasts and picnics; he is famed for his curries, soups, cakes and puddings. We get fabulous beef, lamb and honey direct from Ol Pejeta Conservancy. All drinking water is mineral water, and wine, beer, sodas, cordials, juices and a variety of spirits are provided.
