Set on the banks of lovely Lake Elmenteita, a popular spot for bird-watching, Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp is a five-star safari camp.
Accommodations at the camp consist of twenty-four luxury tents all with views of the lake. Each tent is elegantly furnished and comes with two twin beds or a double. The en suite bathrooms feature double vanities and a shower. The beautiful Flamingo Suite includes a bedroom and separate living room and has a romantic jacuzzi bath as well as a shower. Every tent has a private veranda making it the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee while admiring the sapphire blue waters of the lake and the many birds it attracts. Other amenities include bathrobes, mini-bar, mosquito nets, and free Wi-Fi.
The camp is located in the 48,000-acre Soysambu Conservancy on the banks of Lake Elmenteita. The name Elmenteita derives from the Maasai Ol muteita for “place of dust”. The alkaline lake’s rocky islands are the only East African nesting site for great white pelicans. The lake’s plentiful algae and plankton offers food for vast flocks of flamingos and a multitude of other waterfowl, including many rare species. In fact, the Conservancy protects over 450 bird species and 15,000 wild animals such as vast herds of zebras, gazelles, elands, waterbucks, and buffalos, as well as family groups of black-backed jackals, warthogs, dik-diks, and baboons. The region has even become a protected breeding ground for Rothschild giraffes, as well as the nationally threatened colobus monkeys.
