Ol Pejeta Bush Camp
The 90,000-acre nonprofit Ol Pejeta Conservancy is famed for its modern conservation methods and work protecting endangered species: The last male northern white rhino in the world resides here. It’s also home to all of the Big Five animals, who are regularly spotted, much to the delight of guests on safari. Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is centrally located on the conservancy. There are six traditional safari tents set on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River at the camp, each with simple yet comfortable furnishings, homey rugs, and cushions. This is a friendly, relaxed place to stay. Evenings are spent around the campfire with a glass of wine, chatting to other guests, regaling one another with the stories of safari that day, and trying to spot the hippos on the opposite side of the bank enjoying the salt lick. Tents come complete with warm blankets for chilly mornings and hot "bucket showers"—a must-try experience for the adventurous traveler.
