Visit the Endangered Species Enclosure
The last remaining animals of this species were translocated to Ol Pejeta and it is hoped will create the nucleus of a successful breeding program. In addition to the Northern White Rhino with the last 4 out 7 remaining in the world, it is home to a number of endangered species including the locally threatened Jackson’s hartebeest and Grevy’s zebra. It is possible to visit the enclosure during your visit at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
Take a morning or an evening ride within the 600-acre Endangered Species Enclosure, accompanied by knowledgeable staff on Ol Pejeta’s safari horses. These rides will take you on a journey through a predator-free area set aside by Ol Pejeta for the recovery of the northern white rhinoceros.

Morani information centre visit
The Morani Information Centre is named in honour of the tame black rhino that used to live next to it. Over the years, Morani was an icon at Ol Pejeta, an ambassador for his species.
The Morani Information Centre offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the different wildlife species that live on Ol Pejeta; from anatomy to behaviour to habitat. It also offers an insight into how Ol Pejeta Conservancy works – what they do on a daily basis to safeguard wildlife and preserve wilderness.
Black rhino Baraka lives in what used to be Morani’s 100-acre enclosure, carrying the flag for his predecessor. Baraka was born in the wild in Ol Pejeta, but lost sight in both eyes due to a fight and then a cataract. Baraka now lives in the enclosure, located next to the Morani Information Centre, for his own safety, and has taken to his new role as rhino ambassador.
