About
Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp is an exclusive and up market camp. Evocatively styled to echo Syosambu’s rich history, the camp combines the magnificent accessories of a bygone era with unadulterated luxury and an enticing range of activities. Idyllically set among golden barked acacias with breath taking views across the sapphire blue lake to a backdrop of ancient volcanoes, it is an easy 2 hours’ drive from Nairobi.

A game drive through the conservancy is one of the must do things while at the camp. Some of the wild animals that are found in the conservancy are zebras, buffaloes, black rhinos, giraffes, cheetahs. Leopards and tree climbing lions have been spotted most recently at the conservancy.

It is also advised you carry a pair of binoculars so that you can be able to spot different bird species that are found in and around the camp.
