Safari description 

Our 6 Days Rift Valley lakes Masai Mara safari visits the 5 kenyan parks  that have numerous birdlife. The larger and the lesser flamingoes, king fishers , hot springs and Geysers as characterized in lake Bogoria national park.Lake Bogoria is an alkaline lake and it hots the world’s largest populations of lesser flamingoes. Due to the lake’s alkalinity, blue green algae grows well, this in turn feeds the flamingoes. At times the number of flamingoes feeding in the lake may be as many as two million – creating a wonderful undulating blaze of pink as the flamingoes go about their feeding. This scene of brilliant pink flamingoes by the millions is only found in the Rift Valley Lakes of Kenya, and so is not replicated anywhere else in the world, due to the very specific environment needed by the birds.

Besides the flamingoes there are many other birds and animals to see at Lake Bogoria such as buffalo, zebra, baboon, warthog, caracal, spotted hyena, impala
