This was our second stay at Ol Lentille and we are pleased to report that it was even better than the first (which I did not think was possible). We traveled with a group of friends this time and had the lovely sanctuary to ourselves. The setting couldn't have been better for a group to have fun and learn about... More

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille offers a unique and personal experience in the African bush. The accommodation and service are exceptional and our guide was dedicated, insightful and available to us at all times. It is a great opportunity to learn about Maasai culture and communities as well as to participate in many fun activities. We particularly enjoyed bush walks... More

My family spent a week at The Sanctuary in late September. This unique property is set in a stunning location. It felt as if the entire 20,000 acre preserve was our private sanctuary and the night sky was indescribable. John and Gill Elias are making an important contribution to ecotourism and have worked in partnership with local villagers. Together they... More

It felt like going home this time. A wonderful "Place in the Wilderness" where we met with old friends, went for a long wildlife walk with Timothy, spent a half a day looking at the new Hospital, and the methods of construction, from on site manufactured bricks to Wards, Clinics and water storage. Ol' Lentille is much more than a... More

I have no hesitation in recommending this amazing place. We have been twice and both times it more than fulfilled our expectations. The staff are wonderful and nothing is too much to ask. Chef delights you everyday with a choice of fresh produce all of which is beautifully presented and served. The spa is tranquil and refreshing, the furnishings throughout... More

An incredible place, we were extremely well looked after by all of the staff, who were really friendly and helpful. We were able to completely unwind and relax and there were lots of great things to do. We especially loved the spa treatments, pool, excellent food, quad biking, walking, and sundowners. We had a 6 month old baby and the... More

This place is simply amazing! The location and layout is second to none, situated on the top of a hill deep into the African bush with breathtaking views. The way this place works is quite unique; the accommodation is generous and well appointed, beautiful artefacts provide a great first sight, which is then built on by the provision of your... More
