Overview of The Sanctuary At Ol Lentille

Surrounded by green valleys and hills, The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille sits on the northern escarpment of Kenya’s Laikipia Plateau within 40 000 acres of untamed wilderness – meaning you have three times the size of Manhattan to explore! With its elegant, tasteful decor complementing the beauty of distant Mount Kenya and Ol Olokwe Mountain, this luxurious establishment makes for a comfortable and unique safari retreat where all activities are completely private.

The four spectacular villas are ideal for couples or honeymooners, and your private butler will ensure any and every comfort you may want is instantly to hand.

When you are not out on a nature walk or game drive, unwind on a lounger next to the large infinity swimming pool or retreat to the stately library where the rows of books create an ambience of peaceful seclusion. Embark on game drives, led by trained and knowledgeable Maasai guides, to spot the huge variety of wildlife that populates the area. Guided walking safaris are also offered, and provide a unique way to discover the finer details of the environment. And after a long day, Visit Ol Lentille’s exclusive spa, where professional therapists will perform revitalising treatments on your mind and body.
