  • Community Walks with Mr Kariuki

    www.olepangifarm.com .

    By far one of the most popular activities at Olepangi Farm is to go for a community walk with the Mr Kariuki, our neighbour, who can only be described as astonishing.  His knowledge of the social history of the area is fascinating and his knowledge of world affairs humbles most of us.  Go for an hour or an afternoon.  Completely flexible.  Many of our guests go out with him more than once.

  • Ol Pejeta Conservancy

    http://www.olpejetaconservancy.org .

    The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 90,000-acre (360 km2) not-for-profit wildlife conservancy in Central Kenya's Laikipia County. It is situated on the equator west of Nanyuki, between the foothills of the Aberdares and Mount Kenya. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy works to conserve wildlife, provide a sanctuary for great apes and to generate income through wildlife tourism and complementary enterprises for re-investment in conservation and community development.

    The Conservancy boasts the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and in 2013 reached a population milestone of 100 black rhino. It also houses the two remaining northern white rhino in the world, who were moved here from Dvůr Králové Zoo in the Czech Republic. The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary is situated here, and provides a haven for orphaned, abandoned and rescued chimpanzees. It is the only place in Kenya where these great apes can be seen. The Conservancy is host to the "Big five game" among a large selection of other African animals, which makes it a popular safari destination. It also operates a successful livestock program, which serves to benefit local pastoralists and wildlife. Through the conservancy's community development programme, Ol Pejeta provides funding to surrounding communities to aid health, education, water and infrastructure projects. They also support the provision of agriculture and livestock extension services and the development of community-based conservation tourism ventures.

  • Horse riding on Mt Kenya

    www.olepangifarm.com .

    Horse rides on the slope of Mt Kenya . . . with every journey we wander amongst towering, heavily scented trees which cast a dappled light over the soft, green forest floor.  We cross small streams and pass through pretty glades, where we occasionally see zebra, antelope and elephants.  The grassy footing within parts of the forest lends itself to long trots and gentle uphill canters. There are also many fallen trees and logs to jump if you wish to add some more excitement to your ride.

    There are many different routes that we can take.  We can go for a shorter ride of 3 to 4 hours within the Forest Reserve, or a longer trip of 5 to 6 hours up to the moorlands where, emerging from the forest we are immediately confronted by a breath-taking, panoramic view of the Mount Kenya peaks.  There are two options:


    This ride includes a classic picnic lunch consisting of homemade sandwiches and snacks, carried in saddlebags. During the course of the ride we find a pretty spot to rest, untack the horses and lay out our picnic blankets.


    This ride includes a delicious homemade lunch which you enjoy whilst seated at a table, in a beautiful secluded glade within the forest.  Alcoholic refreshments are included in the price.
