LAKE BOGORIA SAFARI & TOUR

AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN LAKE BOGORIA WITH AFRICANMECCA

Although game drives are only offered on request basis at the reserve due to its pristine thermal ecology, leisurely walking tours with AfricanMecca are prime opportunities to discover the biodiversity and unique geographical features of this Great Rift Valley alkaline lake. With your expert guide leading the way, you discover the many large and small details that have earned Lake Bogoria the environmentally-important designations as RAMSAR site and Kenya National Reserve. The most intriguing features are the geysers, steam jets and hot springs that demonstrate the unsettled power below the surface. The subsurface geophysics heats the water to just below the boiling point and adds a concentration of minerals. The forces at work cause the water to bubble to the surface. In the most dramatic displays, plumes of water and high volumes of steam shoot above the ground. Your anticipation grows as you await the moment when the show begins! Your mesmerizing tour of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley lakes is further enhanced by the avian and mammalian wildlife at Lake Bogoria National Reserve (read more on trip idea). The most sought-after creatures are the greater and lesser flamingos that number in the thousands, and sometimes between one and two million individual flamingos during the feasting season.

Joining these elegant feathered visitors are more than 373 recorded avi-fauna species, including approximately 50 migratory species, making Bogoria one of the most bird-rich regions amongst Kenya’s Important Bird Areas. On the shores and in the shallow water watch for curlew sandpipers, great tits, little bee-eaters, marabou storks, white cattle egrets, dikkops, ruffs and many other waterfowls. The eggs and chicks of these species and other food sources provide nourishment for an astonishing number of eagles, from tawny, steppe to fish and other magnificent raptors. Your AfricanMecca guide points out fresh water sources where rock klipspringers, warthogs, zebras, impalas and other herbivores drink. One of Africa’s most iconic and rare antelopes – the greater kudu – is typically found on the northeastern shore of the lake. The presence of spotted hyenas, serval cats, genets, mongoose and other predators round out your East African game-spotting tour. The crevices and outcrops are home to monitor lizards, tortoises, agama lizards and other reptiles. Black mamba, puff adder, spitting cobra and other snakes have also been recorded in the park. More than 45,000 people live around the reserve, and your visit to the Endorois Community Cultural Center includes traditional dances, food and other insightful activities to learn about the diverse tribes of Kenya. The programs benefit conservation and preservation efforts to protect the natural and cultural treasures found near Lake Bogoria (read more on where to stay).
