The five hour drive from Nairobi was so worth the spectacle of masses of greater and Lesser Flamingos. The pink dots and rims around the lake plus the flight at sunset was amazing to witness. We arrived in the afternoon and were shocked at the...More

The park is currently flooded so you can drive maybe 200m in and that’s it. From there, you can view the thousands of flamingoes which settle by the water edge and which take flight at sundown. There’s literally nothing else. The view is nice but...More

We drove 3 ours each way, so 6 hours in total for a 5 mins view of the pink flamingos. The road access to the hot springs was closed due to recent heavy rains. It was HOT and uncomfortable to stand there beyond 5 mins....More

Google maps will tell you to take a dirt road to get to Bogoria. Ignore it, and follow the tarmac rd or about 45kms. The turning is signposted. Before you get into the park, buy some eggs from the shops near the gate (ksh 100...More

The water level in Lake Bogoria has risen considerably and the old road has been washed away. It's an 18km drive to the hot springs and the scenery, flamingos, and pelicans are stunning. The road is not suitable for saloon cars and the 18km trip...More

Lake Nakuru National Park has lots of game. Baringo and Bogoria are more for birds. However Lake Baringo Island resort is stunning.
