Soysambu Lodges and Camps
Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp
On the shoreline of sapphire-blue Lake Elmenteita, where hundreds of thousands of birds congregate, the small and exclusive Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp opened in July 2011. 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.
Tucked away in the spectacular Great Rift Valley on Soysambu Conservancy, Mbweha Camp is nestled up against the southeastern border of Lake Nakuru National Park with beautiful views over the Eburu and Mau ranges. Rustic lava-stone cottages with thatched roofs are surrounded by euphorbia candelabra, yellow barked acacia and other indigenous trees. The Camp features a sunken lounge with a centre fireplace where guests lounge around and chat before a delicious meal.
Overlooking Lake Elmenteita among Acacia and Candleabra trees the campsite faces south with a commanding view of the Sleeping Warrior crater and Mt. Eburu. This private campsite is named for Simon Combes, the renowned wildlife artist, who hosted artist safaris on this site. Provide your own tents and showers. Three stationary long drops and a water tap are located at this site.
Please remember to bring your own gear, tents, and showers.
