The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille takes the meaning of a luxury safari holiday with a conscience to new levels. This boutique Kenya lodge is set in a 40,000 acre private wildlife conservancy. As well as your own private house, you have your own butler, valet, and Maasai guide with exclusive use of a safari car, to cater to your every need. Ol Lentille is so much more than just a stunning holiday destination – it is one of the foremost community-based conservation tourism properties on the continent, so “having fun, doing good” takes on new meaning too.




The entire experience. Absolutely world class service levels, luxurious accommodation, fine food, fascinating wildlife, and an ability to really get in touch with local Maasai and Samburu people.
