This private game reserve in the wilderness north of Nairobi offers one of Kenya’s most exclusive safari experiences.
Once the domain of billionaire French art dealer Alec Wildenstein and his eccentric wife Jocelyne “The Cat Woman” Wildenstein, the one-time cattle ranch is now dedicated to the preservation of endangered species.
What makes Ol Jogi unique is the fact the sprawling manor house, its satellite cottages and the rest of the ranch is only available for exclusive use for prices hovering around a quarter of a million dollars per week.
“The experience I’m trying to offer here is how you would have seen Africa maybe 20 or 30 years ago,” says ranch director Alec Wildenstein Jr. on the reserve website.
There is no other place in Africa where you can have an entire 60,000-acre wildlife conservancy entirely to yourself. You will never see another tourist, never see another mini van.
