The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille
  • Each villa is fully staffed and serviced with a butler, valet, guide (and safari vehicle), askari (guard) and exceptional food by an international chef

  • All safari activities are private per villa

  • Explore the private reserve by mountain biking, quad biking, horse riding and camel safaris as well as game drives

  • Four stunning private villas on a hilltop in Laikipia, with seemingly never-ending views

Perched high up on a grassy hill overlooking deep, acacia-dotted valleys, The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is a wonderful community project comprising four houses, each secluded and intimate, and each with its own staff including a Maasai guide, a vehicle, a butler, a valet and an askari (guard). For families with children, the services of a nanny can also be included.

The four guest houses are secluded from each other and are accessed by winding steps and gravelled pathways.

In addition to the four houses, the Sanctuary has a wonderful infinity pool with views stretching to the horizon, while nearby “pods” have been created for guests to escape into and while away the lazy afternoons with a good book or a snooze. There are also viewing platforms complete with GPS telescope ensure guests can enjoy the sights during both day and at night.

For those who wish to explore the area, day and night game drives, walks, quad bikes, horse-riding, mountain-biking and even camel rides are on offer! The conservancy is home to kudu, leopard, hyena and klipspringer and occasionally the rare wild dog are spotted. The stunning surrounding landscapes offer rock climbing courses and jogging trails.

After your activities you can unwind at The Sanctuary’s very own spa, with a variety of treatments including massage and reflexology, as well as beauty treatments. Then relax in the Sanctuary’s very own library complete with a viewing deck and a telescope for all guests to use.
