Relax on the shores of a classic Rift Valley lake at the 5 star Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp. Bird watchers will enjoy the sight of thousands of flamingos and pelicans feeding in the lake’s shallow waters but this spectacular region is home to a wide range of wildlife. Your days will be filled with exciting opportunities to look for big game on drives in the Soysambu Wildlife Conservancy or a nearby Lake Nakuru National Park Safari. And thanks to Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp’s private location, you’ll get to go on night drives as well.
The exclusive Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp rests in the 48,000-acre Soysambu Conservancy – a sanctuary to rare wildlife including abundant bird species and East Africa’s only nesting site for the Great White Pelican. In total, the conservancy protects over 450 bird species, and is also a safe breeding ground for the Rothschild giraffe.
Each lake-facing tent at Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp has been designed to take you back to a bygone era of travel. Luxuriously furnished, the suites feature large double beds with draped canopy netting for a sense of seclusion and romance .
These spacious ‘tents’ are more like small houses, sitting on stone platforms with a wooden front door, glass windows and canvas roof. All are traditionally furnished with a nod to safaris of old and feature a four-poster bed, tiled-floor en-suite bathroom with his and hers sinks, and a private deck with views of the lake.
