Serena Camp Suite Interior

Serena Camp

Intimate and classic camp near the famous Flamingo filled Lake Nakuru

In the geologically fascinating Great Rift Valley

The alkaline lake’s rocky islands are the only East African nesting site for great white pelicans

The exclusive Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp offers an all-round great place to stay, just two hours’ drive north-west of Nairobi. Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp rests in the 48,000-acre Soysambu Conservancy. Evocatively styled to echo the area’s rich history, our safari camp blends aristocratic elegance with modern luxury and offers cuisine and service of fittingly high standards. The nomadic Maasai had passed through the area for centuries and the name Elmenteita derives from the Maasai Ol muteita for “place of dust”.

Serena camp has 24 luxury lakeside tents sitting in gardens dotted with acacia trees that lead down to the sapphire-blue Lake Elmenteita. Each tent is tastefully furnished with its own private veranda and en-suite facilities. There’s also one Flamingo Suite, with a huge lounge and a private Jacuzzi bathtub. The central canvas-roofed restaurant serves a fine dining menu and the colonial-style bar/lounge is the ideal spot to unwind after a day in the bush. Complimentary swimming lessons are offered at the stunning swimming pool overlooking the lake.

Day and night game drives, atmospheric bush dinners beneath the stars, spectacular sundowners and hot-air ballooning over this geologically fascinating part of the Great Rift Valley are just a few of the camp’s activities. The Kariandusi prehistoric site is also nearby. The alkaline lake’s rocky islands are the only East African nesting site for great white pelicans, while its algae and plankton provides food for vast flocks of flamingos and a multitude of other waterfowl, many of them rare. Night game-drives offer a unique opportunity to spot nocturnal creatures including the curious-looking aardvark and elusive leopard.
