Explore the Scenic Great Rift Valley Lakes Plus Masai Mara
Our 6 Days Rift Valley lakes Masai Mara safari visits the 4 Kenyan parks that have numerous bird life. The larger and the lesser flamingos, kingfishers, hot springs and Geysers as characterized in lake Bogoria national park. Lake Bogoria is an alkaline lake and it hosts the world’s largest populations of lesser flamingos. Due to the lake’s alkalinity, blue green algae grows well, this in turn feeds the flamingos. At times the number of flamingos feeding in the lake may be as many as two million. Thus creating a wonderful undulating blaze of pink as the flamingos go about their feeding. This scene of brilliant pink flamingos by the millions is only found in the Rift Valley Lakes of Kenya, and so is not replicated anywhere else in the world. This is due to the very specific environment needed by the birds.
