Accommodation rating: Good Standard
Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp, located on the near 20,000-hectare Soysambu Conservancy which protects more than 450 bird species and 15,000 wild animals, consists of 24 luxury tents and one suite, all styled in a traditional colonial fashion but with all of the comforts expected of a modern-day lodge. The rooms all enjoy views out over Lake Elmenteita and have private verandas where guests can relax and soak in the surroundings.
Wildlife in the conservancy is varied. Daytime wildlife drives offer chances to see herds of zebras, gazelles, elands, waterbucks and buffalos, as well as black-backed jackals, warthogs, dik-diks and baboons. Less common species include the bushbuck, bushpig, steinbok, reedbuck, duiker, caracal, and golden and side-striped jackals. Night drives, prohibited in national parks and many wildlife reserves but allowed here, also provide the opportunity to spot spring hares, eagle owls, bat-eared foxes, hyenas, aardvarks and leopards. The well-placed bird hides enable sightings of notable bird species such as great egrets, maccoa ducks, critically threatened great crested grebes, and many migrant waders and waterfowl.
