The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille

Laikipia tourismDescription

Perched on the flanks of a wooded rock kopje, in the heart of our private conservation area, is The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille – a collection of four private, full-service, fully staffed Houses for the discerning few. Features at the boutique hotel include; “Horizon” swimming pool, Spa with luxury treatments, Library and viewing deck with GPS telescope and Satellite broadband wi-fi.

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille takes the meaning of a luxury holiday in Kenya to new levels. The boutique hotel is set in 20,000 acres of private Wildlife Conservancy and is also one of the foremost community-based conservation tourism properties on the continent.



We are situated on the Maasai community-owned Kijabe Group Ranch, on the far northern escarpment of the Laikipia Plateau with enormous views to the craggy peak of Mt Kenya, the Samburu sacred mountain Ol Olokwe, the Matthews Range and the Karisia Hills.

Our private community conservation area, known as The Ol Lentille Conservancy, is 20,000 acres of grassy hills and deep valleys, heavily wooded with many acacia species and African olives. Its sandy laghas (dry river beds) are bordered by great stands of fig and fever trees.

The Houses

Perched on the side of a granite kopje, our four private lodges boast a design that is a mixture of modern Africa and traditional styles reflective of Kenya’s rich history. Bay windows offer almost uninterrupted views over the rugged hills of Kenya and the desert beyond to the north.

Four luxury private houses –each fully staffed and serviced:

  • Butler
  • Valet
  • Guide (and safari vehicle)
  • Askari
  • Exceptional food by International Chef
