Lake Elementaita, Kenya
Hidden in between the two better known lakes – Nakuru and Naivasha – lies the smaller and less familiar Lake Elementaita.
In the ancient past the three lakes were one big lake, and maybe one day they will reunite again … In the meantime, I highly recommend stopping for a few days of peacefulness in this beautiful lake.
I stayed at Eagle’s point camp– Thanks to Effie Bar, an Israeli travel agent who shared with me a few incredible spots in Kenya. But this particular spot is her heart, and I understood why the minute I got there. The lake is beautiful and serene, absolute tranquility overcame me instantly. My time there was just perfect. I mean, look at my little cottage in this next video (but you can also camp)!

So why come to Eagles point camp?
🌿 Fran and the staff – charming and welcoming. Fran is a woman worth getting to know!
🌿 The sweetest dogs- especially Blossom who chose me for her friend from the first moment.
🌿 Flamingos – beautiful lumps of pink on the lake
🌿 The shores – A short drive will lead you to the open shores of the lake where you can see the flamingos relatively up close.
🌿 The conservatory- on the south side of the lake – I didn’t visit it.
🌿 For fellow enthusiasts of the prehistoric time:
– The small museum at the camp itself – Fran’s project. An interesting collection of the history of the rift valley- the cradle of humanity.
-The caves- I did not come, but Fran says it’s worth a visit. Caves used by the earliest hunter-gatherer groups.
-The Kariandusi prehistoric site- with the Finds of the Renowned archeologist Lewis Leakey
🌿 But mostly… come for the beauty and tranquility
How to get there
By public transport: from Naivasha / Nakuru you can use a Matatu (local van buses) that will drop you off by the side of the road, and from there continue by Boda-Boda (motorcycle taxi) for a few more minutes to Camp.
The camp offers cottages and also camping options.
