Rift Valley Lakes

Into the Great Rift Valley to visit Lakes Baringo, Bogoria, Nakuru, Elementaita and Naivasha. The Great Rift Valley, a massive fracture line in the earth's surface, runs through Kenya from north to south and is marked by a chain of fresh water and soda lakes, interspersed by volcanoes. The scenery travelled through on this safari ranges from the harsh and rugged terrain of Lakes Bogoria and Baringoand incredibly lush and fertile horticultural and agricultural farmland around Lakes Naivasha, Elementaita and Nakuru.

Day 1 Nairobi - Baringo
You leave Nairobi in the morning and drive down the escarpment to the Rift Valley floor, past Lakes Naivasha, Elementaita and Nakuru to Lake Baringo arriving in time for lunch, the afternoon at leisure, dinner and overnight at a lakeshore hotel. Hippo and crocodile abound in this fresh water lake but most visitors are entranced by the multitude of birds with over 400 species having been identified. A boat ride on the lake to view the birdlife can be arranged at your hotel.
Day 2
An early morning bird walk is possible and after breakfast you depart for nearby Lake Bogoria. This soda lake, with its shores of hot springs, boiling geysers and steam jets, stark evidence of the volcanic origins of the Rift Valley, lies hidden behind ridge after ridge of barren stony scrubland. Although primarily scenic, Bogoria is by no means devoid of wildlife and birds are plentiful. You later continue your journey to Lake Nakuru National Park for lunch at a lodge followed by an afternoon game drive in the Park, famous for its concentration of often more than a million pink flamingo which seasonally feed on the abundant algae which thrive in its shallow, warm waters. Dinner and overnight are at either Lake Nakuru, Lake Elementaita or Lake Naivasha.
