The Sleeping Warrior Lodge & Camp

An Eco Friendly Luxury Lodge & Camp in the Rift Valley, Kenya

Welcome to the Sleeping Warrior safari destination on the Soysambu Conservancy, Elmenteita.

Essential Africa, exclusive, untouched, undiscovered and unmatched, it offers a choice of two inspirationally different accommodation choices widely spaced by miles of iconic African wilderness: an intimately relaxed tented camp popular with local families and overseas visitors alike, and a panoramic hill-top eco-lodge whose charming cottages look out over one of the finest views in Kenya.

For your ease of use, we have divided this site to offer information on the eco lodge, the tented camp and the conservancy. We also offer a wide range of supporting information on what to see and do.

We hope you enjoy navigating the site, which provides immediate booking availability and a direct link to us. We also hope that we can look forward to welcoming you to the Sleeping Warrior safari destination very soon.
