OL Lentille Conservancy

Most spectacular and breath taking location in Africa

The conservancy surrounding the Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is named for Ol Lentille, a hill of about 6,500 feet in height, and is full of grassy hills and valleys and acacia forests. Ol Lentille is home to the endangered African wild dog, greater kudu, leopard, striped and spotted hyena, and klipspringer, in addition to more common species. The lodge is a community project, working with the Laikipia Maasai of the Kijabe Group Ranch to improve both their communities and conservation efforts in the region. Guests are therefore welcome to take part in a delightful array of activities in the conservancy. Enjoy day and night game drives and bush walks, horseback riding, camel riding, and mountain biking. For the more adventurous, there is abseiling and rock climbing, quad biking, and a bush skills course. One can also arrange for fly camping in the conservancy, or choose to join researchers on some conservation work. Other activities that can be arranged outside of the conservancy at an additional charge include scenic flights and helicopter flips, trout fishing on Mt. Kenya, kayaking and river rafting, and trips to other nearby parks and reserves.

Sanctuary at OL Lentille

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is located on the 14,500 acre private Ol Lentille Conservancy at the community-owned Kijabe Group Ranch on the northern escarpment of the Laikipia Plateau. The lodge is a collection of private, full-service, fully-staffed houses that cater to the discerning luxury traveler. The Sanctuary is a partnership between investors, conservation tourism organizations, and the Maasai community that seeks to balance luxury travel with conservation and community development programs.

Each house of the Sanctuary at Ol Lentille has a private resident staff that is there to cater to every need. A dedicated butler serves as the head of the staff and arranges all meals and drinks wherever guests are on the property. A private valet will ensure that the house is neat and tidy, while an askari focuses on personal safety and security at night as guests travel from place to place. Finally, the each private Maasai guide is a highly qualified member of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association and is always eager to share a wealth of knowledge about the area and his culture as he escorts guests via game drive vehicle and accompanies them on safari

With Ol Lentille you can see real community projects and culture, experience camel trekking, walking safaris, quad biking and mountain biking and wonderful spa treatments to name just some of what we offer. An adventurers’ paradise or just do as little as you like!

Walking Safaris

We love taking our guests on walks in the local area to get up close to all the action and learn about the smaller things that can be missed when you are in a car! We have an incredible number of elephant and wild dog sightings are very good. Guided by Samburu and Maasai warriors this is a very special journey into their ancient lands.

Bird Watching

Laikipia is a bird watchers paradise and we have over 150 species in our conservation area. The most common species here are some of the most spectacular. In the raptor department Martial eagle, Verreaux’s eagle, Bateleur, and Eastern pale chanting goshawk abound, and often provide close company at sundowner drinks at one of our favourite spots. Our guides are well experienced, friendly and here to show you the diversity of birds in our special area.

Camel Safaris

Only northern Laikipia offer camel safaris and it’s a really special and unique experience that we encourage all of our guests to do. Led by Maasai warriors deep into the African wilderness you have instantly gone back in time. You marvel at the landscape, simplicity and surrounding wildlife on a scenic 90 minute camel ride to the river where your lunch is waiting for you. A great activity for everyone and a complete “must do” when you stay with us

Quad Biking

A really fun activity, probably something that you wouldn’t expect to do in Kenya! You can quad bike from the lodge to the local Maasai village, technology meets tradition! Only for guests 16 or over.
