The Rift Valley Lakes (located in the great rift valley) comprise of ‘Salty’ water.  The best known is Lake Nakuru, famous for the large numbers of flamingos that eat the crustacians that live in it’s harsh conditions and the very reason it was chosen for protection.  Lake Elementaita; a smaller and less visited lake, and the least visited Lake Bogoria, offer a more private and intimate experience.  The Soysambu conservancy that borders Lake Elementaita offers opportunites to walk around part of the lake shore in a very private setting.  Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake, offers alot of opportunity for walking, boating, and enjoying Kenya life.  A great retreat for anyone wishing to escape Nairobi for a few days and a great way to start a safari.
