Lake Elementaita Serena is a great property located right on the shores of Lake Elementaita. When you see the sign to turn right which the opposite side of the Lake do not be worried because when you eventually drive through the Soysambu conservancy to the camp, you will be amazed. The camp decor is tasteful and sophisticated without loosing the... More

This luxurious camp is located about 25 km from Nakuru town and right next to Lake Elementaita. The camp has a lovely setting amongst the many varieties of trees and shrubs. All 25 tents have great views of nature and the lake. It was truly the most amazing scenery I have seen in a long time (something great happens when... More

Inspite of, or perhaps because of, my first camping experience having been 5 nights of extreme cold ascending Mt Kilimanjaro, I tend to have an aversion to tents. So it was a pleasant surprise to encounter the 'tents' of Lake Elementaita Serena. Definitely amongst the best rooms I've experienced in my life, huge and very nice. The 'rainfall' shower was...

The nicest and most comfortable beds! Great food. Sun-downer drink and appetizers in the bush overlooking the lake was peaceful and lovely, and I barely had room for dinner that followed at the lodge. Great service. We also had a "bush breakfast" set and served with such class I felt under-dressed in casual safari clothes.

Great weekend get away with lovely customer service. Thanks to Mr. Chege and his team - Jemima, Mildred, Paul, Cecilia and the rest, they made us feel at home. The rooms are great and the scenery and atmosphere is also great. I will certainly go back. The distance and location of the camp also makes it an ideal location. Its... More

Very spacious rooms, quiet apart from the sound of hippos at night and waves from the lake. Everything went on well and service was excellent. I would definitely would recommend this place for a couple.

We stayed here for two days as part of a 7 day safari, before moving on to Maasai Mara reserve. They call them "tents", but only the top is actually tent material. Inside is very spacious, with a bathroom larger than a lot of bedrooms we have seen. The shower is big enough for several people with two shower heads,... More

I spent a weekend here with my angel. Nice getaway from the busy life in Nairobi. It's very peaceful and very quite. The camp overlooks Lake Elementaita, with several herbivores roaming around. Breakfast by the lake side was a first time experience for us. The rooms are large and spacious. I recommend this camp to anybody looking for a quick... More

During a trip to Kenya in February 2014, I stayed at three different hotels owned by Serena hotels. Before signing up for this trip, I performed my due diligence using TripAdvisor, as always. Of the three, I was most excited about this "camp" and it DID NOT disappoint. The place is exactly as represented by the pictures on the hotel... More
