Camel and Yoga Safari at Lake Elementaita
Thu Sep 8 2022 at 12:00 am to Sep 12 2022 2:00 pm (EAT)
Walk around stunning Lake Elementaita with camels camping at scenic spots each evening, and stop for yoga at lakeside viewpoints. View the flamingos on the lake and the wildlife around its shores on foot - or riding on a camel. The private Soysambu Conservancy is known for plentiful wildlife, flamingo-filled lakes and panoramic vistas.
Bobong Camel’s staff team will care for the camels' pitch camp each evening and provide healthy and nutritious meals. A nutritionist will design the menus and oversee the meals, and one of the team will talk about local uses for the indigenous flora.
