Tracking Black Rhinos at Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Ol Pejeta is one of the great sanctuaries in Kenya with all the Big Five animals present in the sanctuary. It is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa with a population of southern white rhinos, home of the last two northern white rhinos left in the world and the sweetwaters chimpanzee sanctuary which protects the orphaned and abandoned chimpanzees from all over East Africa. The sanctuary offers great things to film with major attraction being the Black Rhinos.
What to see at Ol Pejeta Conservancy
Ol Pejeta is home to two of the world’s last remaining northern white rhinos and a sanctuary for over 110 critically endangered black rhinos. The Conservancy employs highly trained rhino protection squads, partners with international veterinary experts and ensures data is gathered regularly on each individual animal.
Meet and film Baraka the Black Rhino:
Baraka was one of the first rhinos born on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. With a low chance of survival on his own, Baraka was moved from the wild to a 100 acre enclosure in order to ensure his safety on your filming trip to this conservancy you will have an opportunity to film Baraka as well.
The Sweetwaters Chimpanzees
The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary was established with an agreement between the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and the Jane Goodall Institute. The aim is to provide lifelong refuge to orphaned and abused chimpanzees from West and Central Africa. Over the last decade, Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary has been compelled to keep accepting chimpanzees rescued from traumatic situations bringing the total number of chimpanzees in the Sanctuary to 36. Many are confiscated from cramped and unnatural living conditions, and many arrive with horrific injuries sustained from abuse at the hands of humans. Here at Sweetwaters, they get a chance to start over.
Take this unique opportunity to head out on Ol Pejeta Conservancy to track the lion population. It is a great way to support the conservation project and to learn more about these fascinating animals with an up-close experience encounter. Tracking excursions depart daily between 06:30h – 09:30h and 15:30h – 18:30h.
