Ol Pejeta Bush Camp

Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is a traditional, very comfortable tented bush camp on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro river, and is the home of owner-managers Alex and Diana Hunter. The camp is set in nearly 100,000 acres in the Laikipia region of central Kenya, right on the Equator next to Mount Kenya itself. Ol Pejeta Conservancy has the highest resident game-to-area ratio of any park or reserve in Kenya. They have incredible wildlife viewing and a fantastic array of activities, without your stay being marred by seeing a lot of other vehicles. If you've always wanted to go on a real safari, then they have the camp with the style and ambiance for you. Most nights from your tent after dinner, you will hear lions roar and leopards grunting, after an evening round the camp fire admiring a sensationally starry sky.

    Tent Package

    Ol Pejeta Bush Camp has 5 luxury 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!).
