A Guide To Soysambu Conservancy
The Soysambu Conservancy was created as an entity to conserve the flora, fauna and scenery of Soysambu Ranch as part of the great rift valley ecosystem. It now supports a rich vegetation and birding life, while involved also in community development.
Soysambu Conservancy, a non-profit organisation, works to conserve the Soysambu Estate as a traditional wildlife area, which supports the integrity of the greater Rift Valley eco-system, while promoting sustainable coexistence of wildlife with livestock and at the same time being relevant to and part of modern-day Kenya.
Located on Lake Elmenteita (within the “Kenya Lake System in the Great Rift Valley” World Heritage Site, a Ramsar Convention Wetlands Site and a Bird Life International -Important Bird and Biodiversity Area), Soysambu Conservancy is bordered by Lake Nakuru National Park on the west, volcanoes Ol Doinyo Eburru to the south and Menengai to the north. Consisting of 48,000 acres of diverse ecological significance, Soysambu Conservancy is home to more than 450 bird species (28% of the world’s population of Lesser Flamingo) and 10,000 mammals of over 50 species including 90+ Rothschild’s Giraffe (10% of the world’s population of this endangered species).
