The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is located in a community owned and privately managed wildlife conservation area, a landscape of grassy hills and deep valleys, heavily wooded with many acacia species and African olives. It is named for Ol Lentille, a 1,977m hill from the top of which (an easy scramble) there are astonishing views. The conservancy is home to the endangered African wild dog, greater kudu, leopard, striped and spotted hyena, and klipspringer, among others.

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille offers luxurious accommodation and facilities and opportunities for a range of activities including game walks and drives, by day and night, horse-riding and trekking with camels. Safari activities are led by local Maasai and Samburu guides, and you can learn more about their respective cultures by visiting local villages.

You are equally welcome to spend time relaxing at The Sanctuary. The horizon pool is especially inviting on a hot day, and the deck is the ideal place to perfect your tan. The Sanctuary facilities include a spa with a comprehensive range of treatments, all included in your stay, an art gallery and a shop, for your day-to-day needs. The library is the main indoor social area where you can mix with other guests, and on the top of the rotunda library building there is a viewing deck with great views over the surrounding scenery and waterholes.

Meals are a highlight and are served privately in a variety of locations, making each special and memorable. During your stay you should try to include at least one dinner eaten out in the bush.

The four villas are all unique in design and range in size from one to three bedrooms. Each is staffed and serviced by a butler, valet, a guide with a private vehicle, and an Askari, to take care of all of your needs. Interiors are spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished, and you'll have your own terrace with panoramic views. The two larger villas have plunge pools.

The Sanctuary practises conservation tourism and has strong links with the local community. By staying here you are helping the local community, which benefits from projects such as school and hospital building, water and sanitation programmes funded by the Ol Lentille Trust. Guests who wish to can participate in community and conservation projects during their stay.
