Ol Lentille

Laikipia and Northern Kenya

Ol Lentille is located in the rolling hills of Kenya's Laikipia Plateau, in the 40,000-acre Ol Lentille Conservancy (meaning that you have three times the size of Manhattan at your fingertips!).

The luxurious private houses are the ideal base from which to explore this fascinating part of Kenya in complete comfort.

This lodge accommodates a maximum of 16 adults and six children in four guest houses. All four private houses come fully staffed with a butler, valet, private guide, night watchman, and game vehicle, and exclusivity is guaranteed.

Apart from game drives, walks, camel safaris, and sundowners in other-worldly locations, Ol Lentille is all about deep and authentic connections with the local Maasai and Samburu communities. Or it can be about relaxing at the spectacular infinity pool, indulging in a spa treatment or enjoying refined world cuisine.
