Welcome to Jacaranda Lake Elementaita Lodge

Located 120kms away from Nairobi and 29kms from Nakuru town is Lake Elementaita Lodge, a 19th century colonial farmhouse and a 33 roomed lodge in the scenic Kikopey area overlooking Eburu Mountains, Sleeping warrior hill, and Lake Elementaita after which it was named. The diversion off the Nakuru-Nairobi Highway into the all-weather road marks the beginning of a journey back into time.

Lake Elementaita Lodge is not your regular lodge. In fact, it is a time machine that allows you to pause, erase everything you expected from a typical lodge and hop into a time machine and visualize how the place was a century ago and how it came to be what it is while unwinding and enjoying your stay.


Lake Elementaita Lodge has a total of 33 rooms all built in the traditional British colonial style. Each of the units is self-contained with some rooms having interconnecting doors for families traveling with their young ones, a front porch overlooking the entire property and some rooms having a direct view of Lake Elementaita. Standard amenities include:

  • Tea & Coffee maker

  • Cable/Satellite TV channels

  • Direct Dial Telephone

  • Air - Conditioning

  • 24 Hour Secure Parking

  • 24-hour Concierge Service

Everyone was really kind and did everything to make us feel at home. The food was great and so were our room which was right next to the beach ,the pools and beach. Big shout out to Josephine at the reception. Our flight was in the evening and after checking out in the morning she gave us a room to keep our luggage and change so that we could still enjoy the beach up to the last minute

We loved the beach, and especially the tiny pool near our room...we would just go there and relax without needing to go to the main pool and when bored we would just stroll on the beach and take a dip in the ocean which was about 10 steps away...the staff as well were really helpful and fun to talk to

Very friendly staff and excellent service. The location and the overall experience was more than we’d have expected. The rooms with beach view are like being in paradise.
