Lake Elementaita (Elmenteita)

This 18 km² Great Rift Valley soda lake is located 120 km northwest of Nairobi. It is also called Elmenteita (meaning "dust" in Maasai language). The lake serves as a transit ground for visiting flamingo while its surroundings are to be found grazers such as Buffalo, Zebra, Gazelles, Eland and Warthog. Some designated areas are ideal spots for long site-seeing walks and bird-watching. The Nairobi-Nakuru highway runs along nearby affording one a spectacular view of the lake. There are also several view points where one may disembark and take photos enroute. Covering two-thirds of the shoreline is the privately-owned Soysambu Conservancy which is home to Leopard, Hyena and small cats, both small and big herbivores, primates and many species of birds including Flamingo and Pelican.  Please note the conservancy lacks Lion, Cheetah, Rhino and Elephant.
