Ol Lentille is in northern Kenya's spectacular Laikipia region. Regarded as one of Kenya's most unique safari lodges as it is community owned, it also has one of the best views in Africa. It is Laikipia's first all-villa property, and the exclusivity extends further, with guests benefiting from a private conservation area over 3x the size of Manhattan. Yes there is wildlife here but the key reason to visit is for meaningful and authentic cultural interactions with Maasai and Samburu tribespeople, the custodians of the reserve and to get out of the car and do other activities, stretch those legs!. The 4 exclusive villas are ideal for couples, families, or groups of friends.
The villas are all individually designed and themed with either 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. Some of the villas offer small plunge pools. They all offer an incredibly high standard of accommodation with discreet butler service. The property also boasts a spa, library, and stunning infinity pool with a view. A stay at Ol Lentille is designed to be restful with flexible private activities, done at your own pace, slow down and enjoy some spa treatments. Meals are served in your location of choice. Let your personal butler prepare an in-villa breakfast in your kitchen, enjoy lunch with a view at our infinity pool and end off the day with a candle-lit bush dinner or on the remarkable library rooftop.
The cultural experiences here are raw, unscripted and real – Kenyan culture gets deeply under your skin here.
