Lake Elementatita

Magical memories are created, that’s the sole reason we embarked on a one hour thirty minutes’ drive from Nairobi to arrive at the Sirville Lake Elementaita Lodge located along the Nakuru-Nairobi Highway. Our arrival marks the beginning of our magical stay in this part of Kenya’s Rift valley.  The quiet tranquillity at the lodge is ideal for weekend getaways. The lake is a bird’s haven ideal for birding.

We take a nature walk along the beautiful shallow lakes in the magical rift valley unearthing local history.  The lake derives her name from the Maasai word mtaita, meaning a place of darkness. The lake is surrounded by more than 400 species of birds with the flamingos and the pelicans being the main species.
