Wildlife and lifestock can coexist and here is the proof

Ol Pejeta, regularly described by me as one of Kenya’s most complete wilderness experiences with all big five on the conservancy and less than four hours drive from Nairobi, has also a different aspect to it. It is one of Kenya’s most successful cattle ranches and yes, wildlife and cattle coexist and in fact thrive.
Predator losses are minimal largely due to the protective measures developed by the ranch management and if you want to hear the story and to learn about how this all began and how it is working, sign up for their next Webinar in a few days.

Meanwhile, check out an article written by me two and a half years ago after visiting Ol Pejeta for several days and being able to take a close up look at their cattle operation:
