Lake Elmenteita, also spelled Elementaita, is a soda lake, in the Great Rift Valley, about 120 km northwest of Nairobi. This alkaline wonder is situated between Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru and lies in the shadow of a hill locally known as ‘sleeping warrior’.
Elmenteita is derived from the Maasai word muteita, meaning “dust place”, a reference to the dryness and dustiness of the area, especially between January and March.
Elementaita is located in between Nakuru and Naivasha. It is a much less visited wilderness than other natural attractions, so you enjoy a sense of privacy and solitude in a wondrous volcanic landscape.
Lake Elmenteita is one of the most important of the lakes of the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, as it is the breeding and feeding ground for many threatened bird species. The area was declared a Ramsar site in 2005. Pelican fringed Lake Elementaita is a bird watcher’s paradise encircled by shaggy hills and enveloped in serenity and birdsong.
During the dry season, black lava islands provide the only suitable nesting and breeding grounds for the Great White Pelican in the Rift Valley region.
Due to the small size of the lake, fluctuations of water level affect the salinity of the lake and therefore the conditions alter, making it an unstable place for the flamingos to rely on for food supplies. However, the lake is a paradise for bird lovers as it has over 450 species, including migratory birds.
Lake Elmenteita is part of the Soysambu Conservancy, founded in 2007. The lake shore is an important area for animals such as Zebra, Gazelle, Eland and Warthog – and a sanctuary for the rare Rothschild Giraffe. It also serves as a sanctuary for the nationally threatened colobus monkeys.
Lake Elementaita hosts a number of the most beautiful hotels and resorts known to the world. For those seeking fine hotels and resorts, Lake Elementaita offers some of the best five-star accommodation in Kenya.
Among the best hotels in includes: Sleeping Warrior Camp Elementaita, Sunbird Lodge Elementaita, Sirville Lake Elementaita Lodge, Sentrim Elementaita Lodge, River House Gilgil, Pink Lake Man’s Eco Lodge, Pelican Lodge Elementaita, Oasis Eco Camp Elementaita, Malewa Wildlife Lodge among others.
