Sergoit Golf and Wildlife Resort
Sergoit Golf and Wildlife resort is a development project that is hinged on the theme of sports, luxury living, leisure and recreation. The project sits on 3,000 acres of land just 25 kilometers north east of Eldoret town, Uasin Gishu County in the North Rift region. The singular defining feature of the property is Sergoit Hill – a tree covered rocky outcrop with a footprint of about 500 acres dominating the flat landscape.
According to the company’s website, the property is a sprawling ranch which serves also as a wildlife sanctuary and is home to the Rothschild Giraffe – one of a priority species in wildlife conservation. Other animals in the area include antelopes, duikers and a large variety of birds. On a clear day you can see Mt Kenya to the East and Mt Elgon to the West. To the south you can also see the undulating Nandi hills and the expansive Cherangany hills to the North.
