Ol Pajeta Bush Camp is a great camp and we would happily go back, it is run by a husband a wife team who own the lodge and have been running camps in and around East Africa for the last 10 + years and their experience shows.
Wonderful small tented camp on the river.
Peaceful and quiet (except for the night time bush noises!).
Alex and Diana have done a fantastic job and make you feel most welcome.
Food is great too and all the staff really friendly and helpful. It was a perfect way to switch off from the hassles of Nairobi, and recharge the batteries.
Situated on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, this small bush camp offers guests the opportunity to enjoy interactive conservation safaris.
The 350 sq. km. Ol Pejeta Conservancy
is only 2-3 hours from Nairobi on good roads all the way.
Alex and Diana Hunter have built an old-fashioned traditional Kenya safari tented camp, which is both functional and affordable. The food is beyond excellent.
