at Lentorre Lodge
We are blessed at Lentorre to have two soda lakes nearby, home to lots of bird species, most famously the majestic flamingo. Although visiting by road is very possible the most amazing way to experience the lakes is to hire a helicopter with us.
We like to say that looking at the soda lakes from the ground is like lying a painting flat and trying to experience it by staring at the frame. To truly appreciate the lakes you need to get above them and take in the colours, the patterns and the otherworldly-ness of them. At the same time, take the opportunity to explore parts of the conservancy like the swamp that you cannot access by road.Learn More About Activities
Lentorre is accessed by private charters in light aircraft, landing on an airstrip that is a 20 minute drive from camp. Alternatively you can take a fascinating three and a half hour road transfer from Nairobi, descending into the rift valley- one of the last beautiful drives left in Kenya.
Deep in the heart of the Great Rift Valley, beyond the volcanic lunar landscape surrounding the soda lakes of Magadi and Natron, deep in the heart of the Olkirimatian Conservancy, lies the oasis of Lentorre.
Fed by crystal clear springs running off the South Loita and Nguruman escarpments, Lentorre provides the perfect spot to relax and soak in the wonders of a wild and untouched Africa.
Lentorre is set on a spur running off the Nguruman Escarpment beside a natural spring in the heart of the Olkiramatian Conservancy, a community initiative developed by the local Maasai community to protect their wildlife, traditional lifestyle and their heritage.
Nestled in this natural amphitheatre, Lentorre provides uninhibited views of Mt Shompole, Ol Donyo Gelai and the active volcano Ol Donyo Lengai. The spring behind the lodge provides a constant source of cool fresh water and sustains a grove of venerable tamarind trees where the Olkiramatian warriors traditionally met as they came of age and elephants continue to gather to feed on ripe tamarind.
