OUR STORY

Immerse yourself in the magic of Africa

An exclusive safari lodge for discerning travellers and conservation enthusiasts

Established in 2007, Ol Lentille is one of East Africa’s most unique and exclusive safari lodges for its spectacular location and architecture, pioneering partnership with the local community and completely personalised service and activities.

After building the lodge on community-owned land, Gill and John Elias, the founders, donated it to the local community and managed it under a long-term agreement. Over the years, several other Maasai and Samburu communities contributed land to the Ol Lentille conservancy, resulting in a total of 40,000 acres of protected land which has been returned to life and re-wilded, and can now be enjoyed exclusively by Ol Lentille guests.

You can guarantee to see some of the most amazing views and sights on the planet. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, they pulled out all the stops. Our stay was a perfect combination of relaxation and adventure, would highly recommend a trip to the Masai market and the quad bike trekking. Hands down the best holiday ever, we will be back soon.

Stayed in the Eyrie for a week and this place is incredible. Perched high on the hills in a beautiful conservancy, Ol Lentille is a labour of love that is a really special place to stay. It's quiet and peaceful and you feel completely removed from the rest of the world (star gazing with zero light pollution is amazing!).

We stayed at the Chief's House in Ol Lentille for 2 nights and had an incredible time. From the fiery sunrises to the endless rolling hills, the refreshing infinity pool to the cosy, chic accommodation, we could not have asked for anything more.
