Description
This is a beautiful, exciting and peaceful getaway on the shores of Lake Elementaita offering a relaxing environment alongside the beautiful acacia trees. It is a place for our guests who are looking to spend some quality time outdoors to relax and just cool out from the busy working week and traffic jams of the towns and cities. Bird enthusiasts can come and watch the various birds. The area boasts over 450 species of birds and other insects. Cactus Ecocamp and Lodge is also suited for hikers, nature lovers and groups of people who are looking for a venue for exciting team building sessions. We offer personal bicycles and we have them available for hire for the day for those who want to experience Lake Elementaita at its best.
