The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is located on 40,000-acres conservancy in the extreme northern escarpment of Laikipia. This property is a joint-partnership with the Maasai community and owners, John and Gill Elias. The four luxury villas each with their own lounge and dining areas and stunning terraces with panoramic views. The larger villas have plunge pools. Guests enjoy the service of their own butler, valet, Maasai guide and 4wd vehicle. Your stay is designed to do what you like when you like.

Game is varied and you may see elephant, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, hyena, zebra and greater kudu. There is a wide range of activities to enjoy such as private morning and night game drives, walking safaris, camel rides, riding out on the quad bikes, climbing Ol Lentille Hill, riding the horses along the animal trails and hanging out (plus playing soccer) at the local Maasai school. An afternoon can be spent in a Maasai Community Village that has been set up for tourists and run by a woman’s group from the four neighboring villages.
