The best single days' wildlife watching: hundreds of flamingoes, lots of rhinos, hippos, birds etc. All within a fairly compact area.
Pity about the roads leading there, but a new road is being built.
North of Lake Naivasha
Visit the Rift Valley with Earthwatch Institute and get to see a side of Kenya rarely seen by tourists.
Rising at dawn with a team of dedicated scientists, you will be taken to remote areas of the Lakes region to study flamingos among the bubbling lakes of Bogoria, gather insects in the acadia trees or study the unique flora of this beautiful region.
Forget the big five, if you love nature visit the Rift.
It is a beautiful retreat set way up in the cedar forests above Lake Naivasha. Luxury camping. Scrummy Italian food cooked to perfection. Impeccable service. Gorgeous cottages with beds and furniture handcrafted from fallen cedar. Horseriding, trekking, hot spring plunge pool, forest walks. Highly recommend it.
It takes a while to work out quite what's going on around this amazing lake in Kenya - the water is stained pink, like some kind of weird oil slick. But when you get close you realise it's just an astonishing, dense mass of flamingoes. A really unusual sight. The surrounding national park has plenty of lions, rhino and buffalo too, and you can post fly camps in some relatively secluded spots.
