Elementaita: Land of Magical Dust and Serene Waters

90

I bet you’re wondering what place you could dash to for a weekend break – not too far from the city, yet in the open and wild that you can enjoy the solitude that the beautiful vast lands of Kenya offer. Here’s a place where you can chill and while your days away and when you need to, dash back to the hustle and bustle of the city.

A land so dusty, you have to cover your head in case you’re caught in a dust storm. Yet you can’t help but marvel at the majesty and the strength of the same dust storms if they whirl by a distance away from you and into the clear waters of the lake.

The view from my room was magical, overlooking the lake. Serenity is!

Elementaita, a land of contrasts: dust and dry, sandy soil, yet green thriving all along the lake shoreline with flamingos and pelicans jostling for space on the marsh as Egyptian geese wait their turn. Eventually, everyone settles down in their designated patch and life is tranquil once again.
I was on a quick road trip to a place I had often passed by before on my travels to Rift Valley. Seemingly stuck between the bustle of Naivasha and the urban headiness of Nakuru, Elementaita seemed slightly forgotten and lost.

The good thing about the forgotten and lost places is that they eventually become the gems in the area. Almost untouched by rampant development, the lake shores offer a stunning view into the hills and breathtaking sunrise or sunsets, depending on what side of the lake you’re on!

The main clubhouse

 

My host for the evening was the new and upcoming lodge, Pink Acres. Nestled in an acre of greenery, the cottages are hidden by the tall acacia trees and wandering bourganvellia bushes. As you drive in, all you have to do is follow the marks set out by the whitewashed stones along the road… and don’t stray from the path, or you’ll find yourself in the wilderness. The driveway curves to reveal the main clubhouse area, and beyond it, cottages.

Fashioned in the style of huts and manyattas, the little-known lodge retains an authentic African feel. There is no ostentatiousness here – everything is comfortable enough to give you an outdoor feel without leaving you exposed to the elements. The open grounds encourage you to set up tent and go camping if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, with washroom facilities to one side to cater for those camping. Or, if you simply want to shower in the open, with the delicious morning sunlight to warm your skin and just enough cover to retain your modesty, this is the place for you.

Panorama of Lake Elementaita – I was able to walk out onto part of the lake bed

A little distance away, on the lake grounds, are hot springs that provide the perfect natural Jacuzzi for those weary bones… and you know, natural springs have got to have some good in them!

For now, the place is still undergoing finishing touches, but promises to be a place within budget for most Kenyan families. Given that it’s about 2 hours’ drive from Nairobi, and within easy distance from Nakuru and Naivasha, Pink Acres provides the perfect getaway location.

Drive through the Nairobi – Nakuru highway and enjoy the grand Rift Valley escarpment scenery. Breathtaking!

 

Timeshare options are available for a limited number of clients, allowing you the flexibility to ‘own’ some space during certain periods of the year. What better than having a chance to take a holiday at your own terms, knowing the accommodation is already available? This is the best chance to get ahead of the pack and avoid last minute holiday rushes.

Take the time for that well deserved break and enjoy time on the shores. Take a book or even a bicycle and enjoy the undisturbed tranquility of Lake Elementaita’s waters… and don’t forget to bring binoculars if you love bird life!

  • “Of course, it’s impossible, but everyone always had the feeling that Coach James must be watching them,” Millen said. “So when I later played for some pretty big profiles in the game – Don Shula, Bill Parcells, Jimmy Johnson – they didn’t seem intimidating to me whatsoever, because I felt I had already been with the ultimate intimidator.”

    • I had a rather hard time chsooing just one type of physician I would want to work for. So many of them fascinate me, and with me not really going into any medical field other than support, I never gave this any thought in the past. After reading the list, I am more favorable of working for a neonatologist. It is difficult to think about how neonatologist physicians sometimes have the most difficult job in the world, but I can only imagine how amazing it would be to be a part of saving a baby’s life. I had a coworker once whose baby was born at 36 weeks, and her baby had a lot of heart and lung problems. There were concerns about whether or not they would ever fully develop once she had him, but after many months in the NICU, and many scares that happened during it, the doctors were able to save him and he is now a very healthy 5 year old. It is because of that I have a higher interest in the neonatologist field.I hate to say which type of physician I would care less to work for, and it is because I worry that many will take it the wrong way. When I was 16, I used to help my mom at an assisted living home as a caregiver. We would get to work at 7:00 A.M. every morning to prepare breakfast for four of the elderly men and women that we were caring for. We would then make sure that all bedding was changed, rooms were cleaned, meals were prepared, and appointments were handled. We worked 12 hour days, and they were always grueling. The owner of the home made sure that everyone had their medicine and made it to their doctor appointments on time. However, she was more worried about getting paid for her services than actually helping the elderly. She would yell at them if they did something wrong, and even call them terrible names. My mom reported her and we both quit our job, but it has always left a sting in my heart since then. It is because of my experience with that situation that I do not think I could ever work for a gerontologist. I know that the situations would be much different, but ever since my experience with caring for elderly individuals it is very hard for me to think about assisting a physician in geriatrics because I worry that someone else might treat the elderly in the same way the owner of the home did. I am a firm believer that the elderly deserve the ultimate care and comfort when going through any treatment and aging in general, but I do not think I could ever work in that environment again.

  • Je vais déménager à Toronto pour l’université en septembre prochain, et je vais avoir besoin d’un travail qui peut satisfaire mes problèmes financiers. J’ai entendu décapage et faire les services aux adultes payant un peu, alors je me demandais comment vous pourriez trouver un emploi comme ça? Merci!.

    • I have not really cheson what kind of specialists I would like to work under, but I do believe that it would be fun to work in a Psychiatrist’s office. I originally was going for my B.A. in Psychology, but switched. There are so many to choose from that sound absolutely interesting. Such as working under an Internist or going simple and working under a Family practitioner. Even Gerontologist sounds like fun. I love the “aging population” and they have stories and much to teach.For the moment I am going to take this degree one step at a time and try to find the place that fits me best.
