The 24,000 Acres Sweetwaters Game Sanctuary is currently part of the Ol Pejeta conservancy. Formerly called Ol Pejeta Ranch. It was a cattle ranch for breeding of beef cattle. One of the attractions of Sweetwaters is the history behind it. In 1988, the former owners Lonhro Africa took over the management of the ranch. In 1989 they set it up Sweetwaters Game Reserve as a sanctuary for the endangered black rhino and other wildlife populations (including the “Big Five”).

Between 1989 and 1993, twenty-two black rhinos were introduced into Sweetwaters from other sanctuaries. Today, with the birth of 29 calves the population has steadily increased, making Sweetwaters Sanctuary a successful breeding ground of these ancient animals.
