Escape to the Lake
Escape from the city and retreat to the calm of the exquisite Lake Elmenteita Serena Safari Camp. A two-night (self-drive) package that allows you three days of enchantment amongst the flamingoes and pelicans of the exclusive Soysambu Conservancy, which lies just 2 hours’ drive from Nairobi. Spend two-nights in your opulent tent overlooking the lake, dine in Edwardian elegance (inclusive of drinks other than spirits) in the mess tent, take a guided bird walk on the lake shores, experience the magic of a game drive on this fascinating conservancy, famous for its rare Rothschild giraffes, and sign off your escape with a lavish breakfast served on the lake shore.
Escape to the lake…and you’ll wonder why you never did it before…
Presided over by the vast volcanic crater known as The Sleeping Warrior, ringed by immeasurably ancient volcanic ridges, and encircled by gold-tinged acacia forests, the Lake Elmenteita experience stands alone amongst Kenya’s safari portfolio. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is unrivalled when it comes to the glorious interaction of vast numbers of flamingoes and pelicans with unusually prolific and varied wildlife. Nor does any other natural arena promise the unique intimacy of this very private conservancy. Wildlife highlights include lion, leopard, buffalo, hyena, warthog, plains game, smaller cats and creatures of the night. The conservancy also shelters 10% of Earth’s remaining population of the rare and endangered Rothschild’s giraffe. 450 bird species have been recorded and daily sightings can include as many as 60 species. As for experiences why not take a horse-ride along the shore, sundowners on the lake, a hike up the Sleeping Warrior Volcano, or a tour of the pelican nesting site or a mountain biking excursion.
