Opulent colonial elegance right on the shores of Lake Elmenteita. On the northern tip of the Soysambu Conservancy; this safari camp has all the accoutrements you would expect from a luxury hotel, yet captures the pure adventure of Africa.

Despite deriving from the Masaai word for ‘dusty’ the area is anything but devoid of life. Each year hundreds of thousands of birds flock to the waters as the lake represents a rich feeding ground of crustaceans and blue-green algae. Around the shores of the lake graze herds and zebra and gazelle, making Elmenteita a fantastic area for wildlife spotting.

During your stay you will find that each tent is tastefully appointed with dark wood furnishings and cooling drapes hang throughout. Your room will also have its own private veranda where you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the tree-studded grasslands. Between activities in the African bush, you will find the Elmenteita Serena the perfect place to relax and unwind, enjoying some cocktails or perhaps dinner under the stars.
