Ol Pejeta wins gold at Responsible Tourism Awards!

According to judges at the African Responsible Tourism Awards, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy (OPC) in Kenya’s Laikipia region is an "outstanding example of how tourism can be used by conservationists to protect habitats and species and to uplift local communities”.  Conservation Capital and its principals were deeply involved in the creation and development of OPC into what is now widely considered to be a model modern wildlife conservancy,  including chairing the founder board for its first 5 years. Ol Pejeta uses a pioneering (and since much replicated) hybrid for-profit / not-for-profit corporate structure, welcomes more than 60,000 tourists annually and is now Africa’s largest rhino sanctuary. In 2014 it also became the first African conservancy to be given IUCB Green List status.
