About

About The Chief's House

A reflection of contemporary Africa which combines a sumptuously cool modern interior with the best of African art, fabrics and artefacts. It has three double bedrooms, a sitting room, dining room and kitchen. The sitting room has a charming open fire, as well as a plunge-pool on the outdoor deck. Each bedroom has a dressing room and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a large outdoor bath set in the rocks for candlelight bathing under the stars.

As well as your own private house, you have your own butler, valet, and Maasai guide with exclusive use of a safari car, to cater for your every need. Our international chef creates fine cuisine which you can enjoy from the luxury of your secluded decking area.

Location

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is a ground-breaking partnership between private investors, conservation organisations and the neighbouring Maasai and Samburu communities. They balance luxury travel and economic development with ambitious conservation and community development programs.

Ol Lentille is perched on the flanks of a wooded rock kopje, in the heart of a private conservation area comprised of 20,000 acres of grassy hills and deep valleys, heavily wooded with many acacia species and African olives. It is named after Ol Lentille, a huge hill from the top of which an astonishing panorama of Northern Kenya unfolds. The Ol Lentille Conservancy is home to the endangered African wild dog, greater kudu, leopard, striped and spotted hyena and klipspringer, as well as many elephant.
