Pelican House

Laikipia tourismDescription

Pelican House is a self catering thatched upcountry cottage. It has an open plan living and dining room with a huge fireplace, and a separate equipped kitchen. The bedrooms open onto the covered veranda and a wooden deck extends out towards the dam and extensive views. The grounds are maintained, a lawn and colourful gardens, but the natural bush habitat surrounds it all.



Pelican House is located within the 90,000 acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy - where a hassle-free safari experience with amazing wildlife viewing on good all-weather roads is guaranteed. The House is an ideal family destination, with access to the many activities offered within Ol Pejeta Conservancy, for weekends or short breaks.
