Wildlife Educational Centre contains a range of wildlife exhibits and background on the Conservancy and it’s operations, an interesting stop for children and adults alike.

Northern White Rhinos- 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. It’s possible to visit the enclosure during your visit (separate fee payable.

Lion Tracking- monitors the Conservancy lions (some have been collared with receivers). As part of the program we are able to track the lions with a portable satellite dish and remit the data to the study centre.

The Chimpanzee Sanctuary for orphaned chimps is an excellent venue to observe the two families and learn about the perils facing chimpanzees in the wild.
