Program

Day 1: Nairobi to Lake Bogoria

You shall drive for an estimated one and a half to two hours through the scenic Mau Escarpment and down to the Rift Valley floor. You will be stopping briefly at the famous viewpoint to marvel at nature’s scenic offering of the Great Rift floor and the almost overflowing lakes. You will drive past Naivasha towards Lake Nakuru, then onwards towards Lake Bogoria. You will arrive in time for lunch at Lake Bogoria Spa Resort, followed by an afternoon visit to the hot springs.

The scenery around Lake Bogoria is stunning, offering a breathtaking sight to visitors. The hot springs are ideal for bathing and are excellent natural spas for the visitors. At Lake Bogoria, you can enjoy the scenic settings, the boiling geysers, and hot springs. Lake Bogoria is considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in Kenya and is situated in the Rift Valley. Sometimes, it is home to the world’s largest populations of lesser flamingos. The lake is well-known for its geysers and hot springs along the bank of the lake and in the lake. Dinner and overnight is at Lake Bogoria Spa Resort.

Day 2: Lake Bogoria - Lake Baringo - Nairobi

After breakfast, you have a chance to visit the nearby Lake Baringo to explore the lake in a boat (optional). Lake Baringo is one of a number of lakes that form part of the East African Rift system. The Tugen Hills, an uplifted fault of volcanic and metamorphic rocks lies west of the lake, while the Laikipia Escarpment lies to the east. It is one of the two fresh-water lakes in the Rift Valley (the other being Lake Naivasha). Later on, you will drive towards Nakuru where you'll stop over for some lunch along the way as you proceed back to Nairobi.

Location

Lake Bogoria

Lake Bogoria is most famous for being one of the few destinations that flocked to by millions of lesser flamingos during the migratory seasons. It is a spectacular sight to see the shallows of this salt lake stained pink by the mass of birds. The high levels of evaporation at the soda lake have left behind a high density of salts and minerals in the water, which makes it inhospitable for fish and is not suitable for swimming in. Although there’s plenty of wildlife in and around Lake Bogoria, it tends to make itself scarce, with the exception of the flamingos at the hot springs. Most animals prefer the eastern shore, which is slightly less accessible.

Lake Baringo

Lake Baringo is a renowned birding location in Kenya, boasting over 500 species of bird. It is one of only two freshwater lakes in the Rift Valley system, therefore attracting different wildlife and holding fast as a unique destination. Highlights include crossing the equator, some fabulous birding, and visits to authentic Pokot villages. The area is a habitat for many species of animals, including hippo, crocodile, and many other mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and invertebrates. There are a number of small islands to visit in Lake Baringo, which can be reached by motorboat from the mainland. One definitely worth a visit is Ol Kokwe Island, which has natural hot springs.
