AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN LAKE ELEMENTAITA WITH AFRICANMECCA

Most of Lake Elementaita is part of the Soysambu Conservancy, a non-profit organization setup by its owners, the Delamere family, is dedicated to preserving the flora and fauna of the lake and surrounding area. Because the conservancy is privately-held land, you are able to discover the bush in ways that are not allowed in national parks and most game reserves (read more on where to stay in Elementaita). You do, though, have access to varied available activities, such as game drives, bush walks, day trips to surrounding attractions, crater hikes and much more. The most popular activities at the lake are day and night game drives, bird watching and walking safaris, giving you many options to ensure a fascinating tour of Lake Elementaita with AfricanMecca. Daytime game drives are offered in the early morning and early evening when the wildlife is most active, and we can even arrange sundowners as part of your end of day game drive. At night, the East African bush transforms into an eerie, silent world of restless herbivores and hungry predators in a constant struggle for survival. Bat-eared foxes, striped hyenas, eagle owls, elusive leopards and other night hunters primarily come out of their hiding places at night, so you not only see these animals, but also observe their unique nighttime behaviors. Game drives are conducted in the conservancy, so we are able to customize your game drives to the animals and behaviors you want to see and any other individual interests that you may have, such as exploring a specific habitat. Optionally, you can game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park to maximize on your terrestrial wildlife experience and also boat in Lake Naivasha.

You will have a diverse Kenya birding safari at Lake Elementaita and the Soysambu Conservancy, as more than 450 avi-fauna species have been identified in the area. The largest populations are great white pelicans and lesser and greater flamingos. Approximately 90% of all of Kenya’s black-necked grebes and cape teals are found at the lake, as well as maccoa duck, the critically threatened great crested grebe, great egret and other species that represent conservation concerns. More than half a million birds visit the lake annually, including resident and migratory species, so you are sure to see some of your most sought-after birds. No matter your fitness level, AfricanMecca can arrange a walking safari or bush hike to meet your needs. You can travel to the savannah plains to observe buffalos, elands, zebras and other plains game, or walk along the shores of the lake to have an up-close view of the feathered visitors. Your pleasurable and knowledgeable guide injects a new and interesting perspective into the nature that you explore, such as footprints, tracking techniques, scat and carcass identification, plant identification and medicinal uses and so much more! Another site of interest for your exploratory vacation at Lake Elementaita is the Kekopey hot springs. The springs are an integral part of local traditions, as the water is believed to heave healing properties. We recommend a morning visit to the springs, as this is the best time to see pied kingfishers and yellow-billed storks, but the surrounds around the springs are also superb for birdwatching any time of day. If you are fit, you can also trek the Sleeping Warrior Crater and the Hill of Mawe Mbili.
