Day 2: Mt. Kenya Safari Club – Ol
Pejeta Sweetwaters Conservancy
Today we travel to the exotic Sweetwaters Tented Camp or
Porini Rhino Camp in the secluded heart of Ol Pejeta Ranch and
Rhino Reserve. Here, these magnificent beasts are given
sanctuary from those who would take their lives to sell their
horns. Here too, the Jane Goodall Institute operates a
remarkable Chimpanzee Sanctuary where we meet the primates face
to- face. Our camp also overlooks one of the busiest waterholes
in the area and offers elephant, giraffe and myriad plains game.
This is Africa as Teddy Roosevelt saw it years ago when he led
one of the first safaris to tour Africa in comfort and splendor.
Our tents at Sweetwaters or Porini Rhino Camp will remind us of
this bygone era.
