Airbnbs at the lake
Lake Elementaita, located on the Rift Valley 130km from Nairobi CBD, is the least visited among all the other lakes on the rift. This is because most of the land around the lake is privately owned. The most known location around lake elementaita is the Soysambu conservancy. When visiting the conservancy, you can experience day and night game drives, quad biking, horse riding on the shore of the lake and bird watching. Apart from visiting the conservancy, there is an upcoming trend around Lake Elementaita that I have experience. There are airbnbs where you book and spend a night or two in cottages next to the lake. The airbnb I booked charged 20,000/= per night but it was such a great experience. It was my friend’s birthday and we decided to have it in lake elementaita. We booked 2 weeks in advance. You pay half when booking and the other half 1 day before you arrieve. The payment catered for accommodation in the 5 bedroom cottage, a chef to cook all your meal while you are there and a bonfire. The privacy in the cottages allows for great time with friends, as lovers and even families book airbnbs in lake elementaita to have a holiday there. It was so much fun. There was even a consensus on the day that we were leaving, to pay for one more day. Sadly, it had been booked so we couldn’t extend our stay. I’d recommend you try the airbnbs in Lake Elementaita at least once.
