WHAT TO SEE AND DO

Wildlife

Experience the thrill of night game drives, prohibited in National Parks and many Game Reserves, to spot spring hares, eagle owls, bat-eared foxes, hyenas and the elusive aardvark or shy leopard.

Day game drives offer peace and privacy, with chances to watch vast herds of zebras, gazelles, elands, waterbucks and buffalos, as well as family groups of black-backed jackals, warthogs, dik-diks and baboons.

Soysambu protects flourishing breeding herds of endangered Rothschild giraffes, as well as the nationally threatened colobus monkeys.

Less common species include the bushbuck, bushpig, steinbok, reedbuck, duiker, caracal, golden and side-striped jackals.

Birds

Witness the spectacle of thousands of great white pelicans flying between Lakes Nakuru and Elmenteita daily to fish and watch them feed their chicks on the islands of Elmenteita.

Watch thousands of lesser and greater flamingos feeding in the shallow waters of Lake Elmenteita.

Enjoy over 450 species of birds, over 80 of which are waterfowl.

See species of conservation concern, including the Great Egret, the Maccoa Duck, the critically threatened Great Crested Grebe, and many migrant waders.

Elmenteita often boasts more than 90 % of all Kenyan Black-necked Grebes and Cape Teal.
