My wife and I came to Kenya to explore Ol Pejeta Conservancy, one of the most important wildlife conservancies in Africa. I researched options for accommodations and chose Ol Pejeta Bush Camp.

The camp is fantastic, the staff is amazing, but it was our guide's passion for the animals that made this safari so special. Thank you Duma for sharing your knowledge with us. We will always remember our sunset cocktails with the empire of elephants.
