Lake Bogoria National Reserve lies about 220 km from Nairobi. The lake features jets of stream and boiling water shooting in the air. Thousands of both greater and lesser flamingoes migrate to Lake Bogoria which is a shallow soda lake when the water level in Lake Nakuru changes to extreme low or high. The greater kudu is best spotted here living on the Western shores of the lake.
The most dramatic yet the least-visited of the Great Rift Valley lakes, Lake Bogoria is a spectacular sight, reflecting searing blue skies and the rose pink of flamingo. It has significant ornithological interest with 135 species of birds recorded. Like Lake Nakuru, the alkaline waters of Lake Bogoria grow blue-green algae which seasonally attract thousands of flamingoes
On the western shores of Lake Bogoria you find hot geysers bubbling, to the east is the forbidding walls of the towering Siracha Escarpment, and to the south by gentle groves of fig trees and golden-green acacias, in whose shade linger Lake Bogoria’s herd of the rare Greater Kudu, buffalo, zebra, cheetah, baboon, warthog, caracal, spotted hyena, impala, dik dik and many small mammals.
Bogoria has around 200 hot springs in total but the largest and most spectacular collection erupts along the lakeside at Loburu, some 9 km from Loboi Gate.
