Ol Pejeta conservancy is a 360km square which is non-profit wildlife conservancy in Central Kenya’s Laikipia County. It is situated on the equator west of Nanyuki town.

It was used as a ranching area during the colonization although wildlife and pastoralists were roaming in the areas even before colonization and early stages of colonisation.

Like any wildlife parks, it is ideal for therapy and stress reliever especially to children candidates who are about to do their exams and are afraid due to tensions.
