LAKE BARINGO SAFARI & TOUR

AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN LAKE BARINGO WITH AFRICANMECCA

Lake Baringo is not a game drive destination, but rather a restful place for you to rejuvenate during your adventure-seeking Kenyan safari. Although avian species are the main attraction, the lake is home to impalas, giraffes, hippos and other small mammals, and there are distinct activities available to keep the interest of even the most discerning AfricanMecca vacationer in Kenya. Boat safaris on Lake Baringo are the most popular activities due to the variety of routes and proximity to the spectacular action that takes place throughout the day on the lake and shoreline. We can arrange these boating excursions in the morning or afternoon, although we do recommend that you spend at least one morning on the lake. The rising sun casts a divine light across that lake that is superb for photography and wildlife viewing. You may also see some larger animals along the shore as they come to drink. Your guide expertly locates and identifies the avi-fauna and tracks raptors like African fish eagles hunting down a fish. You may also see crocodiles and hippos in the water. Choose from excursions around the Rock of Gibraltar, Ol Kokwe Island or Giraffe Island for nature walks and private bush meals at Ruko Conservancy.

Late afternoons are a splendid time to join an expert ornithologist for a walking tour of Lake Baringo (read more on where to stay). These one to two hours outings take you close to the habitats along the lake edge and beyond. Locating birds in the dense brush can be difficult without professional guidance, so your chances of finding scrub-dwelling birds increase significantly with your AfricanMecca guide. As you walk along the basalt cliffs, look overhead to see some of the most powerful birds sailing along air currents in search of food in the cliffs and lake. As the sun sinks into the horizon, glorious colors reflect from the lake surface. A refreshing sunset cocktail on a boat, at the “Look Out Point” or along the beach give you a moment of introspection and quiet conversation as the wilderness becomes silent with the night’s arrival. We also recommend that you plan time for fishing, day trips to Lake Bogoria National Reserve and cultural tours of the local villages. The people of the Njemps village are the only pastoral tribe that also relies on fishing for sustenance. While at their village, gain personal insight into their traditions, craftsmanship and language. Other tribes near Lake Baringo are the Tugen, Pokot and a few Turkana.
