Mixed grasslands and woodlands are a perfect habitat for spotting the elusive black rhinos as it will be hard to see it in the thickets since its solitary and a browser, while its close cousin the wide mouth white rhino is easily spotted in open grassland with its head hanging low or wallowing in muddy pools. Dams are well concealed in the evergreen Oclea thickets where the lions await their unsuspecting prey to come for a drink before they turn into the main course. At Morani education center you get a warm welcome from the guides equipped with practical informative illustrations and they walk you through the life of a true survivor Baraka the blind rhino. However, your experience isn’t complete without a sneak peek to our closest cousins.
The Sweet-waters chimpanzee sanctuary evokes excitement when watching our closest cousins, their calls will alert you miles away. Trading glances with the wild champions who have managed to adapt in this modified habitat is exhilarating. Listening to the skilled guides narrate the horrifying tales of how the lovely chimps could barely survive caged as pets and awaiting to be sold in some instances is unnerving. As the jolly families exhibit their playful social behavior one wonders why some people are so inhumane? Considering that the aggressiveness some display is a result of poor treatment while they were held captive illegally, but in this peaceful enclosure they thrive freely and visitors get the satisfaction of learning about their plight and embrace their endurance.
Ol-Pejeta conservancy flaunts splendor, defines the perfect wild experience and endows unforgettable memories.
