Upgrades at the Sanctuary Olonana Camp in Kenya unveiled in April have included a new ultra-luxury, two-bedroom suite named after the founder of Abercrombie & Kent and sister brand Sanctuary Retreats.

The tribute to Geoffrey Kent takes shape in the form of a comprehensive renovation blending innovative, modern design with environmental best practise.

Set in lush woodland on the banks of the Mara River in Kenya’s Masai Mara, the new-look Sanctuary Olonana brings the outdoors in, with 14 spacious glass-sided suites designed specially to maximise the wilderness experience for guests and providing panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and the Mara River.

The exclusive-use Geoffrey Kent Suite is set apart from the other suites and is far and away Olonana’s most extravagant accommodation option. It features clean lines and a sleek modernist silhouette; stylish, contemporary interiors finished with locally quarried stone and Kenyan wood; and bespoke, nature-inspired furnishings including a plush king-size bed.

Each bedroom comes with its own coolly elegant slate-and-marble ensuite bathroom equipped with a rain shower and a generous freestanding bathtub so bathers can take in the sun or watch the stars from the water. The lodge is bordered by floor-to-ceiling windows that face the river below, as well as a wraparound deck incorporating its own raised infinity pool – the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a long day of game viewing.

The lodge is accessed by a private road and features an exclusive lounge and dining area, a personal chef on standby to prepare meals and snacks on demand and a fully stocked bar at the ready for first-class cocktails, as well as a dedicated safari guide and vehicle.

Prices for the Geoffrey Kent Suite start from US$5,500 per night (for up to four people), for one to three nights, including all meals and drinks (excluding premium brands) and transfers to and from the airstrip.
