Ride with rhinos

Take a morning or an evening ride within the 600-acre northern white rhino 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. As well as coming close to the last two remaining northern white rhinos on the planet (conditions permitting), you will also encounter many other species including southern white rhinos and a myriad of plains game.

The rides will only be open to experienced riders and some proof of riding ability will be required at the point of booking; clients judged to be of insufficient riding ability will not be permitted to undertake this activity.

Ol Pejeta will supply all tack and riding hats; clients will be responsible for their own attire.  We recommend that legs and arms are covered.

Rides for up to 7 riders will be available daily at 10:00 and 15:00 and will last approximately one hour. We would recommend that clients wear sun-cream and carry drinking water. Subject to availability at time of booking.

Price per person inclusive of meeting the northern white rhinos and riding will be US$ 60.

Please send an email to reservations@olpejetaconservancy.org or call us on +254 (0) 707 187 141  with any additional questions.
