🎉We have now raised $9,400 for our campaign - all thanks to you! This will help us to build a dormitory for these lovely girls, Pauline and Peninah, who told us that with the help of Ol Pejeta they are excited to finish their education and go on to spread the conservation message to their friends and communities.
Building a dormitory for Mwituria will not only help 45 girls graduate in the safety of their schools, but also reduce human/wildlife conflict occurring on the roads to school.
If you didn’t get a chance to donate on Giving Tuesday, it’s never too late! In fact, the Year End campaign is currently in action, meaning that any donation that you make will earn additional funds donated by @globalgiving.

Picture yourself on #JamhuriDay on the Safari Shuttle watching the Big 5 out your window, as you spend the day with your friends and family.
We are offering you the opportunity to be picked up from Nanyuki Mall at the 11am and dropped back at around 5pm, with the option of lunch at @moranisrestaurant at your own cost or carrying packed lunch. Plus the chance to see wildlife without having to worry about transport and fuel costs.

To kick off the 🎅 holiday ☃ season❄, @susanluckywong visited @olpejeta to experience the wildlife and beautiful landscapes. On her first night she stayed at Pelican House lounging next to a beautifully decorated Christmas🎄 tree and cozy fire🔥 before waking up to beautiful views. To get the full Ol Pejeta experience Susan went riding 🐎 in the wild with the Northern White Rhinos and also took time to touch and interact with them. On her second day she visited the Rhino 🦏 Memorial where we remember the rhino's we have lost. Her stay at Ol Pejeta ensured that she sampled the sumptuous and revamped meals we offer at @moranisrestaurant.

A key goal for our Community Development Department is to find ways we can truly help our neighbours, in a sustainable and responsible manner. Conservation agriculture is one of the main ways we achieve this, teaching environmental awareness as well as techniques to increase yields and improve livelihoods.
We have been working with many farmers that live around us on producing fodder rather than the usual maize, which they can use as drought reserves for their cattle or sell on for a profit. The benefits of growing hay include better drought resistance, less susceptibility to disease, more frequent harvests and less environmental impact.

Who agrees with this quote from our Community Conservation Education Officer? We have the power to not only make the world a better place for children, but make children better for the sake of the world.
We are building a dormitory to improve the education of Kenya’s children and to show them the importance of conservation and wildlife, but we need your help. Although we are tremendously proud of what we have raised so far, we are still a long way off from our target of $40,000. Please help us get there - 100% of every single donation will go straight into the building of this dormitory and thus into the future of the natural world.

Is it too soon to wish people "Happy Holidays"? 🎄😀
.
This weekend I'm going to snuggle-up to a crackling fire, enjoy delicious meals prepared by Chef Alex and the Pelican House team, reacquaint myself with @olpejeta's conservation efforts, and marvel at some of Kenya's most beautiful landscapes!

What are your weekend plans?

Ostriches are the fastest runners among birds or other two-legged animals and can sprint at over 70km/hr covering up to 5 metres in a single stride. Take a drive to Ol Pejeta to see the proud ostrich in it's natural habitat
