Immerse yourself in Kenya's wildlife
The Ol Lentille Conservancy is a vital wildlife corridor which connects the Samburu heartlands to the Mount Kenya highlands. Its 40,000 unfenced acres are home to elephants, leopards, greater kudus, impalas, dik-diks, klipspringers and spotted as well as striped hyenas. Endangered species such as the African wild dog, Grevy's zebra, and oryx are also often spotted here, as well as a large variety of smaller mammals. Birds are plentiful and include some unusual species. Our flora is of great interest and varies dramatically with seasonal rains. The Conservancy is Africa at its most original, before the era of mass tourism. Animals come and go, unbounded by fences. Under Ol Lentille's low impact tourism model, they have little exposure to vehicles and humans, and are reclusive. This is not about classic morning and evening game drives to tick off the boxes.
