The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 90,000 acre wildlife conservancy situated between the foot hills of the Aberdares and Mount Kenya. The conservancy has an extensive variety of animals including the big five as well as a chimpanzee sanctuary.
The conservancy encompasses the Sweetwaters Game Reserve where the chimpanzee sanctuary is located and the old surrounding ranches which have reverted to wilderness. Since 2004 game has come back into the area in large numbers and populations have increased 15% each year.

There are numerous black rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, Grevy’s zebra, giraffe, cheetah, Thomson’s gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, black-backed jackals, ostrich, baboons, waterbuck, oryx, eland and more.
