A little piece of Eden
Bordered by Lake Nakuru National Park, the Conservancy is spread out over 48,000 acres and is part of the Rift Valley World Heritage site. The land still bears the scars of the ancient volcanic upheavel of the area with calderas and volcanic lava flows dotting the savannah landscape. Hints that our distant ancestors inhabited this area are found in the frequent discoveries of obsedian tools and earthworks.
