Located in northern Kenya's spectacular Laikipia region, The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is regarded as one of Kenya's most exclusive safari lodges. This stunning location is at one of the highest points in Laikipia, the 360 degree views literally take your breath away.
Staying here is the perfect start or finish to your Kenya adventures. Ol Lentille offers total privacy and total seclusion and can be either an adventurer's paradise or a relaxing retreat.
Ol Lentille is a spectacular example of a pioneering conservation and community project. The lodge was donated to the local community by its passionate owners John and Gill Elias who continue to manage the property. The idea from the outset was to give back to the community and ensure that tourism benefits the lives of the local community whilst protecting the wildlife.
Ol Lentille offers serious wow factor and opened in 2007 as Laikipia's first lodge with private villas, it is an amazing example of sustainable tourism, community partnership, world class architecture and interior design. The variety of activities in Laikipia are endless making this beautiful part of Kenya an extra special place to visit.
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 property is ideally set up for honeymooners, couples wanting privacy and exclusivity and families wanting luxurious safari experiences with numerous additional activities. It is also perfect for exclusive use accommodating up to 14 adults and six children.
The lodge is located in a private 40,000 acres of pristine hills and valleys and offers excellent sightings of elephant, leopard, wild dog, hyena, cheetah, zebra and greater kudu to name a few. To put this into context this area is over three times the size of Manhattan which you have all to yourselves to privately explore, you will never see another car from start to finish! Ol Lentille is so much more than just game drives - the extra activities available here are what makes your stay so varied, special and culturally enriching.
Laikipia offers a truly exceptional experience and is best combined with the iconic Masai Mara, an easy combination offering two very contrasting and different experiences. For people that have been to the Masai Mara before, Laikipia combined with Samburu is also a spectacular and very different combination.
Privacy, exclusive game viewing, authentic cultural experiences, numerous activities and first class hospitality is offered in abundance.
