Equator. Ol Pejeta conservancy part 3

Hello! This post is about our game drive in Ol Pejeta conservancy which lays on Equator and our visit to the Sweetwaters Rhino Sanctuary.

In my previous 2 posts I have already told you about Sweetwaters Tented Camp, where we stayed while being on safari in the conservancy and about Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary. In this post I would like to tell you about our marvelous game drive there, Equator sign and Rhino Sanctuary.

We always use maps in game parks, and you?

Ol Pejeta is a host to all the members of the ‘Big Five' (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard). Unfortunately we have missed lion and leopard this time. However saw loads of elephant families...

If you want to meet some of the 100 Eastern Black Rhinos and 28 Southern White Rhinos you need to book in advance. (We missed our chance, as were told too late). This largest black rhino sanctuary in East AfricaIt is not for free as well.

 

Although you can come and meet one blind rhino that lives in a separate care center made up specially for him. This poor rhino can't live in the wild with other rhinos as he is too vulnerable...

 

If you decide to visit him you will get a chance to touch and feed him...

Moreover this private conservancy lays on the Equator which is also a great attraction itself.
