Where to Stay

Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp

Sleeping Warrior Camp

Sleeping Warrior Lodge

Mbweha Camp

On the shoreline of sapphire-blue Lake Elmenteita, where hundreds of thousands of birds congregate, the small and exclusive Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp opened in July 2011. This area of breathtaking beauty, also home to many rare species of animals, is less than two hours’ drive from Nairobi.  Evocatively styled to echo the area’s rich history, the camp blends aristocratic elegance with modern luxury and will offer cuisine and service of fittingly high standards.

Opened in 2006, The Sleeping Warrior Tented Camp stands on a lava outcrop commanding stunning views over the private Soysambu Conservancy towards UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lake Elmenteita.


Nestled in Lleleshwa groves, the camp offers a choice of four ensuite tents, a stone-built guesthouse or a part-tented hill-top retreat with roll-out star bed. The main house offers a welcoming lounge with a panoramic dining terrace and an intimate bar.

Opened early 2012, The Sleeping Warrior Eco Lodge stands high on a volcanic hill known as Mawe Mbili (two stones), commanding stunning views over the private Soysambu Conservancy towards UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lake Elmenteita,


On top of the hill stands the stone-built reception, lounge and dining room, below which is a stone terrace with a fire-pit, a safari bar and extensive landscaped gardens.


Below, a track snakes through the acacia to the landscaped terraces where the ten wide-spaced natural stone cottages look out across an addictive view of Africa as she used to be. Kidney-shaped, and thickly thatched, each features an impeccably presented net-draped bed, a seating area, bathroom and outshot deck..

Tucked away in the spectacular Great Rift Valley on  Soysambu Conservancy, Mbweha Camp is nestled up against the southeastern border of Lake Nakuru National Park with beautiful views over the Eburu and Mau ranges.  Rustic lava-stone cottages with thatched roofs are surrounded by euphorbia candelabra, yellow barked acacia and other indigenous trees. The Camp features a sunken lounge with a centre fireplace where guests lounge around, get smashed and gossip  before a delicious meal.

Monkey Bridge Campsite

Overlooking Lake Elmenteita among Acacia and Candleabra trees the campsite faces south with a commanding view of the Sleeping Warrior crater and Mt. Eburu. This private campsite is named for Simon Combes, the renowned wildlife artist, who hosted artist safaris on this site.

Located next to the Mereronyi river in a spacious Acacia grove north of Lake Elmenteita, Monkey Bridge shared campsite is a beautiful location for open camping and events.
