Description:

On the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in the Great Rift Valley, Lake Elmentaita lies a vast, extinct volcano. Seen from the distance, its time-eroded crater suggests the profile of a massive Maasai warrior, resting in peace until the end of time. On the slopes of the volcano, surrounded by 20,000 hectares of the private Soysambu Conservancy, nestles an exclusive tented camp, The Sleeping Warrior Camp.

Ecologically-conceived, the Sleeping Warrior Camp consists of four, widely-spaced, and traditionally-presented safari tents. Linked by winding lava-stone paths, each tent has a locally-thatched roof, a private bathroom, which is partially open to the wilderness, and its own private veranda. For those who prefer the indoors we have a room within the main house, Ututu House. Finally, for a romantic getaway Eagle's Nest, our honeymoon cottage, offers a starbed, large private terrace and outdoor bathtub for two.

Other attractions The camp is committed to sustainable eco-tourism and shares certain wildlife and water management responsibilities with Soysambu Conservancy, a non-profit organization established to protect this 20,000 hectare-area of land. Guest pay $30 per person for access to the conservancy, which goes directly to maintaining the environment and the local communities. The camp also employs local Maasai women to gather sustainable Leleshwa (wild sage) wood for water-heating purposes. Additionally, the camp is sponsoring five local children through school.

Day and Night Game Drives Game drives can also be tailored to our guests wildlife interests. The plains and acacia and euphorbia forests are home to many species of mammals including the endangered Rothschild giraffe and a wide variety of antelopes. The elusive leopard, bush pigs and aardvarks can also be spotted at night.
