LAKE BARINGO NATIONAL RESERVES


DESCRIPTION: Island Camp is a small exclusive camp situated on an enchanted remote island and offers a perfect opportunity to escape the humdrum of city life or a change of pace in-between visiting the many national parks.

About 125 km North of Nakuru town lies Lake Bogoria, one of the most beautiful and spectacular of the Rift Valley lakes. It is a shallow soda lake and one ideal for the production of blue-green algae, the stable food for the flamingoes migrate to this lake from Lake Nakuru and elsewhere for breeding. But perhaps more interesting is the breath-taking view of steam jets with boiling geysers which bubble out of natural underground rock. It is a geological wonder one cannot afford to miss. These springs are hot enough to boil an egg within minutes! About 25km in the North is Lake Baringo, a fresh water lake without a surface outlet. Lake Baringo has over 400 bird species. Boat rides past schools of Hippo and a visit to islands on the Lake are popular activities.
