Immerse yourself in the magic of Africa
Our experiences are as unique as they are exclusive. As a community-owned lodge, guests are given unparalleled access to the ancient traditions and vibrant culture of the Maasai and Samburu owners of the conservancy. Those unique interactions with our community are authentic and powerful and often constitute the highlight of a safari. Our remote location and otherwordly landscape are a source of endless wonder and can be explored on foot, by quad bike, or by car - or simply from the comfort of your private deck. Our completely private and customised service means that you truly "own" your holiday: you do the activities which you want, when you want and take your meals whenever and wherever you want.
A typical 4 days at Ol lentille
Unlike a regular safari lodge, where days are organised around the morning and evening game drives, Ol Lentille is highly personalised and family-focused, with an endless choice of outdoor activities, cultural experiences, community engagement and game viewing.

Most of your activities are included in the rates and are private to ensure maximum exclusivity from start to finish.
