The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is a marvellously unique property located in one of the most remote and pristine wildernesses in Kenya. Set high on a hilltop overlooking a 40,000-acre private conservation area with views of Mount Ololokwe, the sacred mountain of the Samburu people, The Sanctuary is the perfect base for an off-grid adventure of for those seeking a complete retreat from the modern world.
Accommodation is ranged over four entirely self-contained villas comprising one to three bedrooms, sleeping two to six adults. Each has its own terrace, living room and dining area as well as dedicated housekeeping staff. The villas cannot be seen from one another so privacy is assured and stepped pathways, some quite steep, lead you around the lodge and between rooms. A small spa with two treatment rooms is tucked away in the rocks while a spacious library with rooftop terrace sits at the top of the resort with a stunning outdoor pool close by. Meals are served in the privacy of your villa with options to have a bush lunch or dinner in the library.
Set up by John and Gill Elias in 2006, the lodge has worked extremely closely with the local community on a range of projects especially focusing on education and healthcare and visiting one of the local manyattas with Gill is a magical experience.
