LAKE ELEMENTAITA & THE FLAMINGOES

Over 400 bird species have been recorded in the Lake Nakuru/Lake Elmenteita basin.


The lake is strategically situated from a cliff on the Nakuru- Nairobi highway 30km from Lake Nakuru and 120km from Kenya capital city Nairobi. Overnight visitors can spend at lake Elementaita Lodge, Sunbird Lodge, The Sleeping Warrior Camp or Elementaita Country Lodge. The lake is a Mecca for bird lovers as the Lake is a stop-over for over 350 bird species with a population of 3,000 Pelicans and 200,000 Flamingos though the numbers increase when environmental conditions like food resource base are limited in other saline lakes.

Soysambu Wildlife Sanctuary gives an opportunity for visitors to spend time on the shores watching the incredible variety of bird species, Buffalo, Gazelle, Water buck, Jackal, Lion, Zebra, Leopard, Eland and Cheetah among other species of Wildlife.

Although the lake region has fewer mammalian species than other areas in East Africa, more than 15,000 animals roam the conservancy property.
