In the last few years, Ol Pejeta has been in the news as the conservancy is the home of the last Northern White Rhinos on Earth. There were hopes of breeding them but sadly, the last male named Sudan died in 2018. However, cutting edge genetics and breeding programs still hope to save the subspecies from extinction. The Rhino Project is just one of many great conservation initiatives which guests can support and get involved with at Ol Pejeta.
One of the great aspects of Ol Pejeta is the range of activities offered for guests to get out and experience the African bush. These include fantastic cycling safaris among the wildlife or horse riding expeditions. Guests can head out with rangers and help track animals, as well as assist in conservation and monitoring work. One of their most popular initiatives involves meeting the anti-poaching dogs, learning about the work that they are doing. The fee for this activity goes towards funding anti-poaching efforts.
