Located at one of the highest points of northern Kenya’s spectacular Laikipia region, The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is regarded as one of Kenya’s most exclusive safari lodges and is the perfect start or finish to your trip in Kenya.
The four private villas are one, two or three bedrooms and are all individually designed and themed offering an incredibly high standard of accommodation with discreet butler service and panoramic views.
The lodge is located in a private 40,000 acres of pristine hills – all your activities are private and you can do as little or as much as you like – with unlimited spa treatments this is the holiday and relaxing part of your Kenya adventures.
Laikipia is all about the variety of experiences it can offer, it’s not just about game drives and the stunning landscape. With Ol Lentille you can see real community projects and culture, experience camel trekking, walking safaris, quad biking and mountain biking and wonderful spa treatments to name just some of the activities. An adventurers’ paradise or just do as little as you like.
Exclusivity, pristine game viewing, authentic cultural experiences, numerous adventurous activities and first class hospitality in abundance.
A stunning lodge with a very different and unique story offering something very special in beautiful northern Kenya. The British investors John and Gill have created the conservation area, brought the wildlife back to this area and raised over $5 million to go back to the local community (building schools, hospitals and water sanitation projects). They donated the lodge to the community and continue to manage the property, a total one off.
The cuisine at Ol Lentille is prepared by an international chef and can be tailored to each guest’s needs and tastes. Guests dine when they want, where they want, alongside a specialized wine list specifically chosen for their quality.
