Ol Jogi provides guests with a tailored experience where each of their individual requests and preferences are seamlessly met. As wonderful and indulging as is Ol Jogi’s home, the real treasure lies in the untouched nature, the wildlife that unfolds before your eyes, and the freedom to do anything you wish within this magical setting. Ol Jogi becomes your own exclusive home where your adventures are only limited by your imagination. As a family, we also understand what children enjoy and are happy to ensure that their holiday experiences match that of their parents.
Nestled around one of the property’s larger kopjes is Ol Jogi’s Main House, where guests stay in a series of luxurious, themed cottages surrounded by tropical gardens, streams and waterholes. Each of the thirteen individually designed suites feature a dressing room, a generous bathroom, most have a living room and a private outdoor terrace that overlooks the garden and a series of water features where an ever-changing scenery of wildlife come down to drink.

At Ol Jogi, you have the opportunity to get unusually close to wild animals through a variety of different and unique experiences. For 35 years Ol Jogi has operated as a private conservation sanctuary; the amount and diversity of wildlife is amongst the best in the world. We currently host 6% of the world’s remaining Eastern Black Rhino and 15% of the world’s remaining Grevy’s Zebra plus significant populations of all of the “Big Five” along with several other endangered species.
Wildlife Rescue Centre Thanks to the rescue and release services that Ol Jogi offers to wildlife, guests will have the opportunity to get up close with the animals - elephants rescued from Zimbabwe, cheetahs and a lion brought to us as orphans by local communities, a blind rhino, and wild dogs. Under guidance, guests will be able to approach them in a way that would never be possible in the wild.
Game Drives are enjoyed in the radio-linked, custom-built, four-wheel drive, open-sided vehicles that are driven and personally guided by our Conservation Managers. Guests can take the opportunity to discuss Ol Jogi’s Conservation model and learn about the complexity and intricate management of wildlife conservation. Due to the expanse and exclusive nature of Ol Jogi, guests will never experience the same game drive twice.
