Specialist Safari

Near Elmenteita is the Kariandusi Prehistoric Site. This site was unearthed by Louis Leakey in the 1920’s and has been a rich source of prehistoric obsidian tools, made by early humans between 1.4 million and 200,000 years ago. Most of the tools found at Kariandusi are cutting implements which seem to have been used for butchering meat.

These excavations can be visited and there is a small Museum. This is easily accessible from the Elmenteita - Nakuru road.

Bird Watching-

This is considered an important bird area, frequently visited by specialist Birding safaris. Species of interest recorded here include both Lesser and Greater Flamingo, the remarkable Jackson's Widowbird and the Grey crested helmet Shrike. Both Martial and Crowned Eagles have also been sighted here.
