About Serena Elmenteita
Serena Elmenteita is uniquely situated on the shoreline of Lake Elmenteita where hundreds of thousands of birds congregate. This area of breathtaking beauty, also home to many rare species of animals, is less than two hours’ drive from Nairobi. Evocatively styled to echo the area’s rich history, the camp blends aristocratic elegance with modern luxury and will offer cuisine and service of fittingly high standards.
We have 24 luxury tents with views of the lake and each tent is tastefully furnished with its own private veranda. Facilities include telephones, wireless Internet, minibars and electronic safes. The Flamingo Suite is an additional luxury suite with a spacious lounge, Jacuzzi and prime lake view. There is a beautiful central restaurant, bar and lounge, and we have a sparkling swimming pool.
Today’s Soysambu is a 48,000-acre wildlife conservancy and also a RAMSAR site - a wetland of international importance. The alkaline lake’s rocky islands are the only East African nesting site for great white pelicans, while its algae and plankton provides food for vast flocks of flamingos and a multitude of other waterfowl; many of them rare. The conservancy protects over 450 bird species and 15,000 wild animals.
Night game drives offer a unique opportunity to see nocturnal creatures including the curious aardvark and elusive leopard. Walking is also allowed, with chances to experience the miracles of the bush close-up. Atmospheric bush dinners beneath the stars, spectacular sundowners and hot-air ballooning over this geologically fascinating part of the Great Rift Valley are a few more of the camp’s exciting activities.
