Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp, situated on the shoreline of sapphire--‐blue Lake Elmenteita, is less than two hours’ drive from Nairobi. Styled to echo the area’s rich history, the camp blends aristocratic elegance with modern luxury. The nomadic Maasai passed through the area for centuries and the name Elmenteita derives from the Maasai Ol muteita; “place of dust”. In 1897 Baron Delamere, settled in the area and began farming in the Rift Valley. He moved to Elmenteita in 1906, where started sheep and cattle ranching, assisted by the local Maasai. He named his farm Soysambu, Maasai for “striated rock”. Today, Soysambu is a 48,000-acre Wildlife Conservancy. The alkaline lake’s rocky islands are the only East African nesLng site for great white pelicans, while its algae and plankton provides food for vast flocks of flamingos and a multitude of other waterfowl. The Conservancy protects over 450 bird species and 15,000 wild animals. Rothschild giraffes have found a safe haven for breeding, while a diverse variety of terrain shelters many species --‐ from herds of giant elands to tiny dik diks and cliff‐dwelling klipspringers.
