My family have just returned from a holiday which included a 3 night stay at Ol Lentille.
Ol Lentille is the most tranquil and magical place. It is incredibly well run by the owner managers the Elias's and the service was impeccable.
Ol Lentille is situated in a most beautiful and remote part of Kenya The area is in a very low maleria risk area so it was a pleasure not having to douse ourselves in deet spray everyday.
The accomodation we had was in a beautiful and spacious, included a large bedroom, living area, dressing area and indulgent bathroom with wonderful views. My children 12 and 10 had a separate bedroom/ lounge and bathroom, both complimented with terraces .
The service was wonderful we had two great butlers looking after our every needs as well as a housekeeper. Go hungary because the food is excellent , all bread and bakery goods are made freshly on the premises. Every meal and snack was delicious , we were so impressed given how remote the area is. There is even a spa and all treatments are included in the price. At night we felt very safe as 2 Maasi eschuri (security)were on guard directly outside our lodge all night. Every little detail has been considered and it all works so effortlessly.
We so enjoyed our time with our Maasai guide Timothy and it was so interesting to meet the local Maasai and visit their new primary school.
Our stay included game drives, sundowners , walks, archery, relaxing around the pool, a picnic in a dry river bed, visiting a Maasai village and visiting the local school.
We left feeling totally relaxed and with wonderful and special memories of this unique place, I would highly recommend anyone considering a trip to Kenya to include it on there itinerary.
One tip it would be advisable on maybe the outward leg of the journey which was not suggested to us by our travel agent to fly into Nanuki(not sure if spelt correctly) and be driven to Ol Lentille. Although this is an 1hr and half transfer , our guide told us that there is the opportunity to see wonderful game viewing on the journey .
