Located in northern Kenya’s spectacular Laikipia region, Ol Lentille is one of Kenya’s most unique safari lodges, in the most breathtaking location. The lodge has 4 fully staffed private villas, which offer total privacy and exceptional service, as well as several common areas, including a stunning infinity pool. It can be either an adventurer's paradise or a relaxing retreat to start or finish your Kenya adventures.
The lodge and its 40,000-acre private conservation area are owned by the local community. The conservancy, a major animal migration corridor, is unfenced and managed in partnership with the local communities, who receive a share of the income of the tourism business. It is home to the endangered African wild dog, elephant, Grevy’s and Burchell’s zebra, greater kudu, leopard, striped and spotted hyena, and klipspringer - to name but a few.
There are day and night private game drives, or you can go on walks to discover Ol Lentille's stunning landscape.

As the pioneers of luxury villas in Laikipia, Ol Lentille's accommodation offering is curated for relaxation, privacy, and connection to the beautiful location.

Acacia is a two-bedroom thatched roof house, built into the mountainside, with large rocks blending spectacularly into the house. Its decor is inspired by the acacia tree, with accents of gold and blue gracing its plush interiors.

In addition to the luxury villas, the lodge features a spa, and an infinity pool overlooking a watering hole, and a uniqiue Gallery.
The Gallery is housed within a 50-foot wide rotunda seamlessly integrated with the natural rock of the area. The equivalent of a “club room”, it is a place to relax and gather your thoughts, read a book from the extensive library specializing in Africana, nature and conservation, play board games, and meet fellow travelers.
The roof top bar above the Gallery sets the stage for remarkable private dining and stargazing experiences.
Ol Lentille's close partnership with the local community gives you unparalleled and authentic access to the Maasai and Samburu culture. Dinners at a manyatta with elders, Singing Wells, Rain Prayers and other such interactions are powerful and moving events, seldom experienced by visitors to Kenya.
Ol Lentille also offers camel trekking, walking safaris, quad biking and mountain biking and wonderful spa treatments.
