Lake Elementaita Tours and Travels

About Lake Elementaita

Situated in the Great Rift Valley, Lake Elementaita is a large soda lake, meaning it has a high concentration of carbonate salts, that stretches out over an area of 18 sq km. Due to it being located predominantly on private land, it is far less popular than some of the other lakes in the vicinity such as Naivasha and Nakuru. This means that a trip to this expanse of water will be free from crowds, making it a much more intimate experience and allowing guests to feel much more at one with nature.
