Meet the northern white rhinosMeet the northern white rhinos

In 2009, Ol Pejeta Conservancy welcomed four of the world's last remaining seven northern white rhinos from the Dvůr Králové Zoo in the Czech Republic. Suni, unfortunately, died of natural causes on October 2014 and Sudan died of age-related complications on March 19th 2018, leaving only two northern white rhino left in the world - both females. The two remaining rhino now live in the 700-acre rhino enclosure. Here, visitors have a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet these remarkable rhino up close and personal and to hear their amazing story from the keepers that look after them 24/7. All proceeds from the Meet the Northern White Rhinos experience are reinvested into the continuing efforts to pull the species back from the verge of extinction.

This activity is available daily from the Morani Information Centre at 8:30 am, 11:00 am, 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm, and can be booked online. It is also available for people visiting the Conservancy on day trips. Please send an email to reservations@olpejetaconservancy.org or call us on +254 (0) 707 187 141 with any additional questions.

We would recommend that clients wear closed shoes and carry sun-cream and a hat. Clothing should be of neutral colour.
