On the shoreline of the alkaline Lake Elmenteia deep within the Great Rift Valley is one of Kenya's smallest, most exclusive permanent tented todges and private wildlife reserves: The Soysambu Wildlife Sanctuary. Elmenteia is reserved exclusively for the few guests of DELAMERE CAMP LTD.


Within the vast estates, home to the Fifth Baron' Lord Hughes Delamere and his son The Honourable Thomas Cholmondeley is the beautiful Soysambu Wildlife Sanctuary, offering the most unique wildlife experience available in East Africa today. The lake is not only home to hundreds of thousands of Lesser and Greater Flamingos, and Kenya's only breeding population of Great White Pelicans, but also a myriad of large and small water birds.


From Aardvarks to Gorillas, Soysambu is one of the few places in Kenya where one has the opportunity to stalk wild game animals on foot and for silent and still vigils to strategically placed game birds, offering views of truly undisturbed wildlife and birdlife. Our unrivaled opportunities for night time game drives offer viewing of nocturnal wildlife rarely seen by those other visitors restricted to the national parks and reserves.


Our resident naturist with a great team of drivers, guides and *Naorabo* trackers each with their varied and in-depth knowledge and interpretive skills will open your eyes to the disappearing Africa, so encourage an appreciation for the lesser known mammals, insects, reptiles and plants of this great continent.

We offer you the incomparable experience of exploring the African environment on foot in the same vein as the third Baron who made the fabulous area his home. We shall share our love of Africa and our extensive knowledge of the wild with you, so that your time at Soysambu will be a safari within a Safari, an unforgettable wildlife experience, an education that will stay with you for many years to come.
You're welcome to walk, to whisper, to wait, to watch and to wonder.
