This special house is perched at the top of our kopje in "African Retro" style. The Eyrie has one bedroom, a sitting and dining room with open fire and kitchen. It is seductively furnished. The circular bedroom has a gigantic round bed, and it is but a few steps to your own secluded outdoor double rock bath with views over our rugged hills to the deserts of the north.
We are situated at the community-owned Kijabe Group Ranch, on the far northern escarpment of the Laikipia Plateau with enormous views to the craggy peak of Mt Kenya, the Samburu sacred mountain Ol Olokwe, the Matthews Range and the Karisia Hills.
Our stay at Ol Lentille was probably one of the best and most authentic vacation weeks ever. We had a number of memorable moments in just one week – the sight of our 6 year old daughter on the shoulders of a Masai guide on a walking safari among elephants or jogging (with a Masai) over the savannah at 8 in the morning passing giraffes, zebras and the rest of the wildlife or the extraordinary high cosine three course dinners every day under the stars of the African sky was just some of the truly authentic and memorable moments – and then we haven’t even mentioned the top-notch accommodation – my memorable moment was the set of all these memorable moments together…

Of course, a luxury safari means it should be relaxing. Wind down in the Spa with luxury treatments and organic products, take game drives or walks day or night, chill out by the pool for your whole vacation or play croquet and boules in the lodge grounds. Do you like books? Then check out the library and the viewing deck atop, which has an open fire, a bar and a GPS-controlled telescope to bring the heavens even closer.
Venture out with your guide on mountain bikes, quad bikes, camels on horseback, for as long as you like during your vacation. Horse or camel rides can be arranged for short treks, or if you want to bring some variety to your luxury holiday in Kenya, longer treks can be sorted out with overnight fly camping. For those who enjoy an even more active vacation, try the parcours jogging trail or rock climbing.
Close community participation is the cornerstone of the Lentille project. If you want you can put yourself to good work on your vacation, helping on conservation or in our community projects. You will be able to learn about the traditional and contemporary Maasai way of life and the challenges faced by groups in such a remote area.
