Pelican House was developed to be a welcome place to stay in Kenya. The front porch looks over a wildlife water pond and out across the grasslands of Africa. The house is a thatched cottage located on the rolling hills between the Mount Kenya and Aberdare National Parks. Located within the protected grounds of the vast natural Ol Pejeta Conservancy; elephants, giraffe, rhinos, lions, hippos, cheetahs, ostriches and antelope have all been seen from the house windows and deck.

A safe and secure private sanctuary, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy can guarantee a hassle-free safari experience with amazing wildlife viewing on good all-weather roads. Ol Pejeta’s main gate is 14 kilometres from the equator turn off, just before Nanyuki town. Follow the signs. Pelican House is 8k further inside the conservancy.

Pelican House is a thatched country cottage. It has an open-plan living and dining room with a huge fireplace, and a separate equipped kitchen. There are three bedrooms, two of which open onto a covered verandah and a wooden deck which extends out towards the dam and extensive views. The rooms come with king-size beds and soft duvets. All clean linen, bedding and towels are provided. There are two washrooms and one smaller bathroom with oversized bathtubs and a small powder room.

Enjoy world famous Kenyan coffee or tea for breakfast as the animals come to drink at the watering hole. In the evening, enjoy a home-cooked supper and sit beside a roaring fire to the discuss the day’s work and adventures.
