Lake Baringo

Lake Baringo

Lake Baringo is, after Lake Turkana, the most northern of the Kenyan Rift Valley lakes, with a surface area of about 130 square km and is one of the two freshwater lakes in the Rift Valley. It is a beautiful lake for all visitors to Kenya to relax and witness local lake culture (the Njemp, Tugen & Pokot tribes). It is also considered Kenya’s premier bird watching site, home to 470 of the country’s 1200 known avian species. Cormorants, fish eagles are among the most common birds sighted on and around the lake, which also provides a habitat for crocodiles and hippos. Boat trips are the best way to explore this aquatic park and its three islands.
