Ol Pejeta Sweetwaters Serena Camp

19
Apr

If you rise at dawn, and the 13 degree temps do not deter you, head on down to the lounge area and get a cup of tea - Kericho gold, nothing else. Take your cup and find a bench, I recommend the one with a free standing ashtray near the first tent. Sit down, take a deep breath and witness the magic of a Sweetwaters Serena Camp Ol Pejeta morning.

Vibrant oranges and mystic greys fill the sky as night gives in to day. Just beyond the watering hole, in the horizon, Mount Kenya rises in all her glory, her 3 distinct peaks - Batian, Nelion and Point Lenana - showing in the dawn light. It’s an awe inspiring and humbling sight.

Ol Pejeta sweetwaters

It’s very quiet at this hour, except the hub-hub of sleepy tourists trying to quickly drink something hot before they head out for the 6.30 am game drive. They all hope to spot doa-doa ya juu and doa-doa ya chini, the local description for the very elusive leopard and cheetah .
