Ol Pejeta integrates cattle with wildlife, and use livestock as a means to manage the rangelands more effectively. They spend their days grazing on the plains of Ol Pejeta, and at night, the cattle are corralled in a predator-proof enclosure (boma).

Ol Pejeta employ 100 cattle herders; one for every 60 head of cattle. The herders know the terrain well, and spend all day out in the bush with the livestock, herding them to water points, pasture and back to the boma at night.

In addition, Ol Pejeta supports pastoral communities in the north of Kenya by fattening and marketing 1,500 cattle a year as part of the NRT ‘Livestock to Markets’ programme.
