Dinner and overnight………… SERENA SWEETWATERS CAMP
Ol Pejeta Ranch has created a reserve for chimpanzees working in close liaison with the Jane Goodall Institute. While chimpanzees are not native to Kenya, there are small threatened populations in the rainforests of neighboring Tanzania and Uganda and throughout central and western Africa. The Refuge at Ol Pejeta was designed as a safe haven for Central African chimpanzees that have been rescued from the bush and pet trade. All chimpanzees at Ol Pejeta were rescued from these conditions. They are now hiking on a large island in the center of the ranch, where they have formed a large social group. Visiting hours: 10.00 – 16.30h. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy hosts all the “Big Five” (elephants, rhinos, lions, buffaloes and leopards) and has a higher wildlife ratio than any other Kenyan National Park. Ol Pejeta is also concerned with the conservation of rhinos and houses the last two northern white rhinos in the world*. The Conservancy employs highly trained rhinoceros conservation teams, partners with international veterinary specialists and ensures that the data is collected regularly on each individual animal. Steps like these ensure that we remain a role model for rhinoceros conservation in East Africa. *Please note that the two remaining northern white rhinos can only be visited for an additional charge of US $ 40 per person, this must be paid locally if requested by visitors. Visiting hours: 09-11.00 h & 15-17 h. But you can see black rhinos in the Ol Pejeta Reserve during the game drives! The Morani Information Center was named after the tame black rhino that used to live here. Over the years, Morani has been an icon of OlPejeta, an ambassador of his kind. He helped to raise awareness of the plight of black rhinos and other endangered species in the wild, and the Information Center was established to continue this education and keep the curiosity wild. The Morani Information Center offers visitors the opportunity to experience the different species of Ol Pejeta – from anatomy to behavior and habitat. It also provides an insight into the work of Ol Pejeta Conservancy – which is done on a daily basis to protect the wildlife and preserve the wildlife. There is also a converted rhino transport box to explore! This is a unique opportunity for visitors to get into the same box where several rhinos have been brought in over the years. See what a rhinoceros feels like when it moves, and be inspired by the appealing info graphics that contain all the info you need to know about rhinos. The center is open daily from 9am to 5pm and is free.
