Ol Jogi Laikipia Holidays

Ol Jogi is one of the most remarkable private wildlife conservancies in Africa. Family-owned for over 40 years, it is a safe haven for the preservation and future development of Wildlife Conservation. Comprising 58,000 acres (270km2) of unspoiled wildlife habitat in the Laikipia District of Kenya, the landscape startles and is unique in its diversity within Kenya.

Ol Jogi hosts large herds of elephants, antelopes, reticulated giraffe, zebra, leopard, lion, cheetah, small cats, three species of primates and a stunningly diverse array of birds.

As recently featured in both Forbes and GQ Magazines, this game-rich wildlife conservancy has however, as its primary mission, the protection of endangered species and thus it provides sanctuary to a large population of black rhinos, over 10% of the world’s Grevy’s zebra and wild dogs.

What makes Ol Jogi different and the most exclusive wildlife destination in Africa?

Ol Jogi gives true meaning to the word ‘exclusive’. There is no other place on the continent where you can have an entire private 58,000 acre conservancy, with as much diversity of terrain and wildlife, entirely to yourself. 

Ol Jogi provides guests with a tailored experience where each of their individual requests and preferences are seamlessly met. As wonderful and indulging as is Ol Jogi’s home, the real treasure lies in the untouched nature, the wildlife that unfolds before your eyes, and the freedom to do anything you wish within this magical setting.

Ol Jogi becomes your own exclusive home where your adventures are only limited by your imagination. As a family, we also understand what children enjoy and are happy to ensure that their holiday experiences match that of their parents.

'On this private piece of Africa, your adventures are only limited by your imagination'.

Nestled around one of the property’s larger kopjes is Ol Jogi’s Main House, where guests stay in a series of luxurious, themed cottages surrounded by tropical gardens, streams and waterholes.

Each of the thirteen individually designed suites feature a dressing room, a generous bathroom, most have a living room and a private outdoor terrace that overlooks the garden and a series of water features where an ever-changing scenery of wildlife come down to drink.
