The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is regarded as one of Kenya’s most exclusive safari lodges in the most spectacular and breathtaking location.

Laikipia’s first lodge with private villas; a pioneering example of sustainable tourism, community partnership and world class architecture. A total one off; a lodge that is proud to be different.

The team, with the local communities, have proudly created, conserved and protected over 40,000 acres of pristine wilderness which means guests enjoy an area three times the size of Manhattan to explore privately at their leisure. The Sanctuary can only accommodate up to 14 adults across the stunning four villas (plus six children) so exclusivity doesn’t get any better than this.

The Sanctuary focuses on your downtime to enjoy the numerous unique and special activities that the lodge and Laikipia offer. Your stay is not the safari format of game drives every morning and evening (but this is available). The Sanctuary often prefers walking and other activities that Laikipia is renowned for to show guests the space and isolation of their stunning location.

With rest and relaxation in mind, guests aren’t woken up at 5.30 / 6am for the first activity (unless they want to be) – instead, you have a full nights sleep and have a private breakfast in your villa at a time of your choice, and then do the private morning activity you prefer.

This flexibility combined with unlimited spa treatments ensures guests relax in this stunning environment and leave revitalised!

Four spectacular villas with discreet butler service offer guests a truly special and memorable stay in northern Kenya’s stunning Laikipia region. Ol Lentille offers exclusivity, pristine game viewing, authentic cultural experiences, numerous activities and first-class hospitality. Located at one of the highest points in Laikipia and offering spectacular views in every direction, it’s a very special property with lots of wow factor.

The lodge is located in a private conservancy of over 40,000 acres of stunning hills and valleys. It offers excellent sightings of elephant, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, hyena, zebra and greater kudu, to name a few.

Elephant numbers have grown in recent years, and some months several thousand sightings have been recorded. There are six packs of wild dog (averaging 20) that traverse the area.
