The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille
The Chief’s House is the largest of our villas and is a huge three bedroom villa that is beautifully designed, styled and furnished. There is lots of space, ambience and privacy for a family or group of friends to enjoy.
Here is African minimalist design decorated with wonderful art, fabrics and artefacts from across the continent.
The sculpted roof collects rainfall, and blends into its rocky surroundings. Inside, the roof provides vaulted ceilings for the sumptuously cool modern interiors.
There are breathtaking views of the rolling mountains and rugged hills of northern Kenya and our private 40,000-acre Ol Lentille Conservancy.
The Sultan’s House brings the essence of Lamu, Zanzibar and the rest of the Swahili Coast to the wilderness of the Ol Lentille Conservancy in Laikipia. This villa overlooks a watering hole favoured by the elephants of Ol Lentille and is designed and furnished with very unique artefacts and furniture.
This is a vast one bedroom thatched villa with an enormous bedroom, dressing area and bathroom. Across a courtyard there is a huge lounge and dining area with a beautiful terrace.
The villa is built between large rocks and has a soaring tightly-plaited papyrus roof which is a wonder of intricate craftsmanship. The exterior of the roof blends perfectly into the house’s rocky outer walls.
Limed boughs of African olive tree and delicate Swahili plaster carvings give this villa a really unique and special feel.

The Colonel’s House is built on two floors, there are two large bedrooms on the upper floor where you can choose king or twin beds. Both are luxuriously comfortable with delightfully soft bedding.
