Newest Member of Bush and Beyond Portfolio – Lentorre Lodge

16 June 2014

Bush and Beyond is thrilled to announce the newest member of our portfolio and a brand new property in Kenya, Lentorre Lodge.  Nestled amongst the foothills of the Nguruman Escarpment, in the heart of the South Rift Valley, just three hours from Nairobi is one of Kenya’s newest luxury safari lodges. Named after the near-by spring that provides year round sustenance for the diverse wildlife that inhabits the Olkirimatian Conservancy, Lentorre Lodge is built on a spur overlooking the vast untouched wilderness below.

Comprising of four en-suite rooms that can hold either a double or twin bed configuration and a further two family units with both rooms being en-suite. Each room is a separate and stand-alone structure and has an un-spoilt view of the wilderness looking towards Shompole Mountain in the distance. Each room also has its own dedicated plunge pool, as well as hot and cold running water feeding the incredible power showers and luxurious baths.

The Olkirimatian Conservancy is situated on the elephant migratory corridor between the world famous Maasai Mara and the Amboseli National Park ensuring that the wildlife is both prolific and diverse. As well as a healthy population of these rare and endangered pachyderms the conservancy is also home to all of the large predators. The once threatened population of lions in the area is now one of the healthiest in the country, thanks to the ongoing work of the local research centre which has recently identified over sixty individuals in approximately seven prides spread between the Olkirimatian Conservancy and the neighbouring Shompole Conservancy, together with a growing population of cheetah and numerous leopard. These two protected areas are combined to create a 60 000 acre safe haven for wildlife in the area.

Four different leopards have been identified drinking at the lodge’s waterholes, and the area is home to a variety of plains game such as wildebeest, buffalo, zebra, maasai giraffe, eland, grant's gazelle, impala, hartebeest, gerenuk, waterbuck, and both lesser and greater kudu. A forest belt less than three kilometres from the lodge is also home to a colony of the beautiful Colobus monkeys.

Activities at Lentorre Lodge include game drives (both day & night), canoeing safaris along the Ewaso Ngiro, fishing, bird watching, camel safaris, walking with a habituated troop of baboons, tracking lion with Rebuild the Pride, community visits plus visits to Lake Magadi & Lake Natron.

Come to Lentorre Lodge and experience your “home away from home” in Kenya.
