Game drives are tailored to our guests’ wildlife interests. The plains, the acacia and euphorbia forests are home to many species of mammals including the endangered Rothschild giraffe and a wide variety of antelopes. Lake Elmenteita itself makes a superb safari game drive venue and is also famous for its flamingo and great white pelican. Its shoreline is also grazed by zebra, gazelle, eland, buffalo and families of warthog.
Note: Soysambu Conservancy requires that only 4 wheel drive vehicles be used for game drives. Moreover, guests must be accompanied by one of our guides when driving on the Conservancy in their own cars.
