At the beginning of Kenya’s great Northern Wilderness lies Lake
Bogoria. The lake is the heart of an arid landscape, in the shadow of
the dramatic walls of the Siracho Range.
The soda waters of the lake attract massive flocks of Flamingo, and the
lake is often carpeted with pink. The 32 sq km lake is still
volcanically active, and the Western shore is lined with spouting
geysers, spurting steam and bubbling geothermal pools. Fresh water
springs at the lake edge attract an abundance of birds and wildlife.
There are many Fish Eagles, which often prey on the local flamingos.The shores are always lined with Gazelle, Zebra, Baboons and this is one of the best places to see Greater Kudu.
Getting Around - Access to Bogoria is a diversion from the Nakuru- Baringo road, via Marigat. Private transport is needed. There is a very basic airstrip which charter flights can use. Getting to the lake itself is very difficult without private transport. Come as part of an organized safari, or with a hire car.
