Each of the four stunning and luxurious safari lodges can be taken exclusively offering you spectacular views from your private balcony. The houses are all of different sizes so can accommodate couples, families and groups alike.

The magnificent Boscia sleeps up to six people and has its own private plunge pool while the Acacia, which perfectly blends the old and new with its magnificent traditional thatch roof and stylish furnishings can accommodate up to two adults and two children.
The elegant Aloe Villa can accommodate up to four people in two spectacular en-suite bedrooms, complete with sunken bath and a spacious lounge and outdoor area. The cosy Carissa is the smallest of the four and with its seductive round double bed overlooking the mountains and romantic outdoor bath it is perfect for a honeymoon couple.

All the houses have their own staff of a butler, valet and guide with a personal 4×4 vehicle. They each have a private dining area and lounge and open fires for those cooler evenings.

Conservation
Conservation
The camp employs 24 rangers from local communities to protect the vast Ol Lentille Conservancy. The team runs anti-poaching patrols, mitigates human-wildlife conflict and deals with cattle encroachment on the Conservancy ensuring the wildlife can thrive in harmony with local people.
Environment
Environment
The camp manages a conservation area and since its creation, the local water table has risen significantly, so much so that previously dry springs are flowing again. 90% of the water used at the camp is stored rainwater with very little needed to be extracted from the ground.
Community
Community
Since the lodge opened in 2007, The Ol Lentille Trust has raised over $5 million which has aided the building of four schools and numerous classrooms at eight other schools, a hospital and multiple water and sanitation projects.
