Chief's House

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.

Colonel's House

Hugely spacious this is a two bedroom large villa with lots of style, character and charm. Really unique, personal and private and great for friends or a family.

This villa features stunning campaign style décor. You’ll feel like you’re truly in the bush home of a well-travelled military man; it certainly has a very “Out of Africa” feel to it. With brass-bound furniture, oriental carpets, and a beautiful Knole sofa in front of an open fire, you feel a connection with a bygone era of comfort and style.

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. Each of the bedrooms has a large private terrace, accessed through double glass doors to enjoy and absorb the panoramic views. They also feature dressing rooms, sunken baths, and a roofless shower room. In the passageway between the bedrooms there’s a fine example of hand-made Kitengela stained glass. A sweeping staircase leads to the sitting room – a great place for pre-dinner drinks and after-dinner storytelling. Across the courtyard is the dining room which is decorated with antique maps and where you can have intimate meals together.

There are spectacular views, highlights include the snow-capped rugged peaks of Mount Kenya and the nearby elephant watering hole. Seeing these majestic animals stopping for a drink is a truly unique experience and is just one of the many amazing sights to behold in Ol Lentille’s 40,000 acre private conservancy.

Eyrie

The Eyrie is a romantic bolthole. Imagine a round bedroom with a huge round bed and these endless views! Some people say this villa has the Austin Powers feel about it. It’s certainly very individual, different and special! There is a sunken bathtub in the rocks often with eagles flying above you, a stunning lounge and dining room and a large wrap around terrace. With panoramic views this villa offers lots of privacy, space and wow factor!

Taking its name from an eagle’s nest, the villa is perched on top of a rocky outcrop, and has a unique ‘African retro’ style. Its domed ceilings add to its sense of spaciousness, whilst the furnishings and decorations create an intimate atmosphere.

There are spectacular views, highlights include the snow-capped rugged peaks of Mount Kenya and the nearby elephant watering hole. Seeing these majestic animals stopping for a drink is a truly unique experience and is just one of the many amazing sights to behold in Ol Lentille’s 40,000 acre private conservation area.

Everyone is always amazed and impressed with the size of our villas – here you have huge amounts of space to relax, recharge and have quality private time together

Sultan's House

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.

Warm, welcoming and inviting this villa offers endless views and endless space!
