"That wonderful dilemma... to leave the luxury of your room to explore the wilderness around, or just relax at ‘home’?"
Rather than simply pre plan the same activities for everyone, at Lentorre, we take pride in our pre safari communications to truly understand the purpose of your travel, and from that to suggest and design activities that fit. Whilst nothing is set in stone and we are flexible, below are some of the acctivities you can plan on doing.
Morning or afternoon drives in our customised safari vehicles. All safaris are conducted by fully licensed guides who are experts in bush craft and have an in depth understanding of how to position the vehicle to secure the best photograph or witness a special moment while on safari.
Night game drives allow you to see some of the more secretive, nocturnal animals such as leopard, striped hyena, aardwolf, genet, bush-babies and African wild cats. Just being in the bush at night, under the stars, listening to the sounds is magical.
An amazing opportunity to get in touch with nature and learn all about the flora and fauna. Exceptional hiking opportunities exist for guests along the Nguruman Escarpment and up the gorge to various waterfalls behind the lodge.
A magical and tranquil experience float in an inner tube down one of the few crocodile free rivers in Africa under spreading fig and tamarind trees. This activity is dependent on the water levels in the river.
The conservation area and the two soda lakes, Magadi and Natron, are home to over 350 species of birds including numerous migratory species which use this unique eco-system as a stop-off point on their annual journey. See if you can add to our growing bird list!
The local research centre, under the guidance of Dr. Shirley Strum, a leading expert on baboon behaviour, have habituated a troop of baboons that allow you to interact with them as they go about their natural activities.
There are few better places to appreciate the magical night sky, take advantage of the minimal light pollution at Lentorre to see the stars at their best.
The Olkirimatian Conservancy would not exist without the efforts of the Olkirimatian community so why not take the opportunity to walk with the cattle, experience a real Maasai Village and perhaps purchase a souvenir.
Children will love being a Maasai for the day, they will get the chance to experience the life of a Maasai child, help fetch water and tend to the cattle and goats.
With a variety of amazing locations scattered across the conservancy and with our amazing chef on hand to produce culinary delights, dining out in the bush is an affair not to be missed.
These are two of the largest soda lakes in the Rift Valley which provide nesting sites for greater and lesser flamingos.
Experience the stunning landscape from the air. An amazing photography opportunity. Flights must be pre-arranged.
While away some time quietly observing life in the bush from our amazing ground level hide. All manor of birds and beasts come to drink from the waterhole and it is magical to watch them quenching their thirst.
The current camp record is an eleven pound catfish and catching is almost guaranteed.
