Soysambu Conservancy (A private conservancy… all to yourselves)

A part of the extensive lands, first owned by one of Kenya’s best-known pioneers, Lord Delamere, the non-profit Soysambu Conservancy is dedicated towards preserving this previously private and still pristine wilderness.


Featuring volcanic hills, rolling plains, and dense acacia woodlands, the Conservancy also includes a substantial part of Lake Elementaita, the ancestral home of 1.2 million flamingos and their attendant cast of pelicans, cormorants, waders and storks.


Within the shelter of the crater, wander large herds of buffalo, within the acacia thickets graze the rare Rothschild’s giraffe, and across the plains bound an ever-shifting kaleidoscope of plain’s game.


Long protected from the impact of mass-tourism, the Conservancy also provides sanctuary for a wide range of predators, including the shy and secretive leopard.




Lake Elementaita

Lake Elementaita is a soda lake in the eastern limb of East Africa's Great Rift Valley, about 140 km northwest of Nairobi, Kenya. Elementaita is derived from the Masai word muteita, meaning "dusty place", a reference to the dry and dusty quality of the area, especially between January and March.


In the south-to-north sequence of Rift Valley lakes, Elementaita is located between Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru. At the southern end of the lake lie the "Kekopey" hot springs, in which the Tilapia Grahamii breed. The reed beds nearby are fishing grounds for Night Herons and Pelicans.


The Lake Elementaita area saw its first white settlement when Lord Delamere (1879-1931) established his Soysambu, a 48,000-acre (190 km2) ranch, on the western side of the lake.


Delamere gifted the land nearest the lake to his brother-in-law, the Honourable Galbraith Lowry Egerton Cole (1881-1929), part of whose "Kekopey Ranch", where he is buried, is preserved today as the Lake Elementaita Lodge.


The Conservancy covers 2/3 of the shoreline and is home to over 12000 mammals. Lake Elementaita has been a Ramsar site since 2005.


Over 400 bird species have been recorded in the Lake Nakuru/Lake Elementaita basin. Elementaita attracts visiting flamingos, both the Greater and Lesser varieties, which feed on the lake's crustacean and insect larvae and on its suspended blue-green algae, respectively. Lake Elementaita is the only breeding ground for the great white Pelican in Kenya.


The lake's shores are grazed by zebra, gazelle, eland and families of warthog. The lake is normally very shallow (< 1 meter deep) and bordered by trona-encrusted mudflat's during the dry seasons.


During the late Pleistocene and early Holocene, Lake Elementaita was at times united with an expanded Lake Nakuru, forming a much larger dilute lake. Remnants of the former joined lake are preserved as sediments at various locations around the lake basins, including former shorelines.


Lake Nakuru National Park

Ringed by shoals of extinct and dormant volcanoes and presided over by the Menengai Crater, one of the largest craters in the world, lie the turquoise-shimmering waters of Lake Nakuru.


Flamingo-frosted, salt-encrusted, acacia-haloed and guarded by the prehistoric splendor of a grey-green forest of Euphorbia candelabrum, Lake Nakuru National Park offers sanctuary to some of the world’s most endangered creatures.
