Lakes Naivasha and Nakuru, are a perfect day trip from Nairobi and the stopping off point for hundreds and thousands of Flamingoes.
Lake Bogoria features hot springs, the sight of fishermen in papyrus boats and the rare Greater Kudu.
Nakuru boasts the rare Rothschild Giraffe and an extraordinary Rhino sanctuary.
While Naivasha is best seen by boat. Further west is Lake Victoria, source of the Nile, and the Afro-Alpine flora of Mt.Elgon National Park, both reached through immense pre-historic landscape of the Rift Valley.
