Kenya

Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

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.

Archery lessons take place on an interactive archery ground with pre-set targets and can be enjoyed individually or as a group. The resident naturalist teaches guests about the various plants in the tree nursery. There is also an evening talk with a naturalist about the particular flora and fauna found in the region. Beginner’s lessons in Swahili are a fun way to learn about the local culture. While water color painting lessons help guests to capture their memories on paper. For an additional fee, daily game drives explore the Soysambu area in comfortable 4WD vehicles led by expert guides. Night drives are the best way to discover the nocturnal activities of animals like the elusive leopard, aardvark, bat-eared fox, and hyena. Other extra activities include horseback riding and traditional dances.

The main area houses a comfortable restaurant, bar, and lounge. A refreshing pool provides a cool respite from the heat of the day. While the Sogonoi Boutique is the place to purchase any souvenirs or gifts. Massage services and a beauty parlor are also available. There are even morning yoga classes to start the day right.
