flamingos lakes great rift valley

Rift Valley

The Great Rift valley is another prized Kenyan attraction, boasting beautiful lakes and escarpments, which provide havens for plentiful wildlife. The region is a birdwatcher’s paradise, as it attracts a number of species to its sparkling lake shores – most notably huge flocks of flamingos that happily wade near hippos and other game species. Three exceptional bodies of water, Lake Naivasha (the highest of the Rift Valley lakes), Lake Nakuru (renowned for its pelican colony) and Lake Elementaita, are the most well-known. Travellers visiting the region will be treated to exceptional sightings of leopard, white rhino, Rothschild’s giraffe and an assortment of plains game.
