Want to See the Last White Rhinos?

Updated on February 25, 2016

We are all aware that the Northern White Rhinos are now at the brink of extinction. There are only 3 white rhinos remaining in the world, all in Kenya's Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The three consisting of one male and two females are considered too old to reproduce naturally.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy is providing 24 hour security to protect these rhinos from poachers.

Scientists have harvested reproductive cells from these rhinos and conducting researches to try and reproduce these rhinos hoping that we can get back up from the extinction.

Come help Ol Pejeta keep up their good work by visiting them and having an awesome time yourselves.

At a fee between USD 40 - 80, you will get to see the white Rhinos, up close. You will also get to see the Ringo the baby black rhino.

That is not all that you get to do at Ol Pejeta. Below are few of the things that you can get to experience:

  • Lion Tracking
  • Night Game Drives
  • Bush Walk
  • Bird Walk

Want to touch a Rhino?

When we visited Ol Pejeta Conservancy, my friends and I got to see Baraka, The blind black rhino. What was even better was that we got an up close view of him and we even got to touch him. This was one of the best experiences and I can say with pride that I have touched a Rhino.

Lion Tracking

For a fee of just USD 20 -40, you can go lion tracking at Ol Pejeta.

Some of the lions at Ol Pejeta have been fitted with Radio Collars, and you should know lions normally stay in prides. So if you find one, you will probably find a whole family.

This was a fun experience for us because we had gone early in the morning. We saw lion cubs playing about. in the afternoons the lions are normally lazying around and sleeping.

Night Game Drive

Are you daring enough?

For most of the animals, night is when they wake up, at day time they normally hide from the sun.

For a fee of USD 20 - 40, you will be driven around with an expert guide and a spotlight for a night Game Drive. This is when you will see foxes, leopards and other creatures come out of hiding. If you are in luck, you might get to see a lion hunt. ;)

Note that this kind of game drive is rare to find. Normally by 6 you are to be out of a national park.
