Stay at The Chief’s House

The Chief’s House is the largest of Ol Lentille’s 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 the private 40,000-acre Ol Lentille Conservancy. The private wildlife reserve is home to elephants, greater kudu, African wild dogs, leopard, and the endangered Grevy’s zebra to name but a few.

Your day often starts with a leisurely breakfast unless you want to do an early morning activity. Breakfast is served at the time of your choice followed by your chosen private activity. The idea of staying here is a relaxing one and there are no enforced early starts like lots of other lodges in Africa.

There is a fully equipped kitchen across the courtyard from the dining room, where your personal butler will serve delicious food prepared by a talented chef.

If you don’t feel like eating in the villa, great food can be provided poolside, or picnic can be arranged or dinner in the bush, with the clink of crystal and silverware accompanying the sounds of the Kenyan wildlife. Eating in the library for a night of your stay is also a special experience.

I went on an adventure of a lifetime to Kenya, planned by True Travel. Borana was the perfect introduction to Africa – the staff were fantastic, the lodge very comfortable and I had amazing wildlife sightings. Then the helicopter flight and night out with Andrew (the real Crocodile Dundee) was an experience of a lifetime; we went scorpion hunting, crocodile catching, swimming in lakes and flew over flamingos. All in all, everything was fantastically planned and the service was brilliant. I’m looking forward to the next adventure!
