Serena Lake Elmentaita Tented Camp is located on the private 195 sq km Soysambu Conservancy , former home to Baron Delamere, an early settler who dedicated his life to pioneering farming methods in the Rift Valley during the early 20th century. The Conservancy protects more than 450 bird species and 15,000 wild animals, including a healthy population of the endangered Rothschild giraffe.
The camp has 24 luxury tents, all of which are styled in traditional colonial fashion. All tents feature a large private veranda, en suite bathroom, telephone, wireless internet, minibar, electronic safe and 24-hour electricity. In addition, the Flamingo suite features a spacious lounge, jacuzzi and prime lake view. The central areas comprise a communal lounge, bar and restaurant, gift shop, swimming pool and beauty parlour.
Wildlife on the conservancy is varied. Daytime wildlife drives offer peace and privacy, with chances to see herds of zebras, gazelles, elands, waterbucks and buffaloes, as well as family groups of 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. Nighttime wildlife drives, prohibited in national parks and many wildlife reserves, also provide opportunity to to spot spring hares, eagle owls, bat-eared foxes, hyenas, aardvarks and some of the 50 leopards that inhabit the conservancy. 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.
Other activities include hot air balloon rides, bush sundowners, nature walks, visits to Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and the Kariandusi pre-historic site.
