This is the villa for couples, honeymooners and wedding anniversary celebrations. The Eyrie was designed for two people, but there’s plenty of space to invite friends over from other villa’s at the lodge or your personal Maasai guide.
The Eyrie has one gorgeous circular bedroom, and boasts some of the lodge’s best views. The valleys and plains stretch out before you, with rolling mountains and hills in the background. This room has a massive hand-made circular bed, with luxurious bedding and a beautiful faux fur throw. The en suite bathroom consists of a dressing room and shower and there’s also an open-air bathtub built into the natural rock – perfect for candlelit bathing under the starry African sky.
The sitting room has an open fire – enjoy the aroma of burning acacia logs as you relax in the evening. Chill out on the classic retro sofas and bean bag chairs. Next to the lounge is your personal dining pavilion – a stunning octagonal room lit by mirrored candle holders.
Watching the elephants play in the waterhole from your villa is a really special experience – romantic breaks in the bush don’t get better than this!
Your day often starts with a leisurely breakfast outside on the terrace unless you want to do an early morning activity. Breakfast is served at the time of your choice and followed by your chosen private activity. The idea of staying with us is a relaxing one and we don’t enforce early starts like lots of other lodges in Africa!
The kitchen next to the living room is where your butler serves marvellous meals, prepared by our talented chef. Don’t feel like eating at home? We’re happy to bring your food to the library, the pool or even the bush. The choice is yours – there are no set meal times here.
Our bush dinners are really popular with couples – there’s something unforgettable about hearing the close by rasping of a leopard over the clinking of silverware, while a bonfire burns nearby.
While your butler is at your disposal for food and drink, it’s your Maasai guide who will tend to your more active needs.
The Eyrie comes with exclusive use of a 4×4 private safari vehicle and your own personal Maasai guide ensuring maximum privacy and allowing you to experience our special part of Laikipia at your own pace. Your guide will accompany you on all activities outside the lodge and you will learn all about their culture, history and traditions whilst they show you their ancient lands.
Your personal Maasai guide will help you get to know the stunning wilderness, with its abundance of plants, birds, and animals. He can answer any question about the Maasai culture and is an expert on the ‘small stuff’ too – wildflowers, insects, beetles, butterflies and moths.
There are plenty of ways to get around our 40,000 acre private conservancy. If you don’t feel like driving or walking when viewing some of the Kenyan wildlife, you can ride a quad bike, mountain bike, camel, or horse.
The thrill of a close encounter with a herd of elephants, wild dog or a dusk leopard will give you plenty of great stories to tell when you get back home.
The Eyrie is a romantic bolthole. Imagine a round bedroom with a huge round bed and these endless views! Some people say this villa has the Austin Powers feel about it. It’s certainly very individual, different and special! There is a sunken bathtub in the rocks often with eagles flying above you, a stunning lounge and dining room and a large wrap around terrace. With panoramic views this villa offers lots of privacy, space and wow factor!
Taking its name from an eagle’s nest, the villa is perched on top of a rocky outcrop, and has a unique ‘African retro’ style. Its domed ceilings add to its sense of spaciousness, whilst the furnishings and decorations create an intimate atmosphere.
There are spectacular views, highlights include the snow-capped rugged peaks of Mount Kenya and the nearby elephant watering hole. Seeing these majestic animals stopping for a drink is a truly unique experience and is just one of the many amazing sights to behold in Ol Lentille’s 40,000 acre private conservation area.
Everyone is always amazed and impressed with the size of our villas – here you have huge amounts of space to relax, recharge and have quality private time together
