Ol Pejeta House

Ol Pejeta House

Ol Pejeta House was once the exclusive ranch house of the famous Adnan Kashoggi. As one would expect, this mansion has extensive grounds and a variety of splendid reception rooms, especially the drawing room with its marvelous fireplace. Shady verandahs stretch around the house, all boasting glorious views of Mount Kenya. The dining room has its own dedicated chef and offers menus tailored to guests' wishes.

The private Ol Pejeta Conservancy on the Mount Kenya plains has a higher wildlife-to-area ratio than any of Kenya's national parks, making for astounding game viewing. The region is host to all the members of Africa’s “Big Five” - elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo, and leopard. One of only four private game conservancies in Kenya, Ol Pejeta is proud to serve as the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya, and as a shelter to large numbers of rare and endangered species. The Ol Pejeta House is at the centre of the 110,000-acre conservancy, seventeen kilometers from Nakuru and approximately 2-3 hours by road from Nairobi.

Breakfast and lunch are presented buffet-style on the terrace, with a wide range of international choices. On offer are a full English breakfast as well as European options. Lunch typically includes meat, poultry, fish, and vegetarian options. Dinner is served in the splendid dining room offering cuisine sure to fit every taste. Vegetarian options are always available. Most uniquely, Ol Pejeta House can also arrange breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails in the bush.

Guest accommodation is luxurious with king-sized beds, opulent furnishings, private verandas, and private bathrooms. There are two master suites and two “guest rooms.” Each is served by a dedicated room steward, 24-hour room service, full laundry and valet service, and ample provision of luxury robes, slippers, and toiletries. Elsewhere on the grounds is a private guest cottage called Buffalo Cottage. It has a private garden and offers two deluxe en-suite bedrooms and drawing room with fireplace.

All guests at Ol Pejeta dine in the common dining room and have exclusive use of the grounds and two private swimming pools. In addition, guests are welcome to take a short drive to Sweetwaters Tented Camp and make use of all the facilities offered there.
