Why Book with us
Not just another safari experience
The 40,000 acres of the Ol Lentille Conservancy, uniquely, are jointly owned by two Maasai and two Samburu communities. The Ol Lentille safari lodge, which operates exclusively on the Conservancy, is owned by a local Maasai community too. This makes us the only luxury community-owned lodge in Kenya. You are treated as a guest of the local community, and given extensive, deep and authentic access to their culture and key events in their life.
These human and cultural connections are what truly sets Ol Lentille apart from other safari lodges. The genuine hospitality when you visit someone’s home, the participation in life events, such as warrior initiations, weddings or blessings are simply not accessible to visitors anywhere else in Kenya.
