This special event is a safari game drive with Sammy Mbogo, a well-known guide, seeing the best of East Africa’s wild animals.

With the snowy peaks of Mt. Kenya as the backdrop, this virtual safari in East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary is sure to be as beautiful as it is diverse.  Find yourself with the “Big Five”, as you explore 90,000 acres of pure wild, with an experienced guide who shares his expert knowledge through the game drive.

During the drive, Sammy and his co-rangers venture out into the wild for close encounters with animals like elephants, lion, hyena, buffalo, rhino, and all the great plains herbivores to name but a few.  There are also a few surprises to come across as they explore the wild.
 
Sammy Mbogo is Operations Field Officer and is one of Ol Pejeta’s most experienced guides.  He is an accredited guide with the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association.  Having worked on Ol Pejeta for many years, Sammy possesses a wide array of knowledge on the variety of animals and plants on the conservancy.  He’s very familiar with the different hidden gems on the conservancy, coupled with world class nature interpretation skills.
 
Eva Kimani is Education Coordinator – Community Development Programmes at Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Laikipia, Kenya.   She oversees implementation and growth of education activities both in and outside the conservancy to maximise the support provided by Ol Pejeta’s community development programmes to local schools and community groups.  She provides 19 community schools with ICT training and resources, manages the Ol Pejeta scholarship programme and conservation education programmes.
