Lake Bogoria National Reserve

Introduction
Lake Bogoria has been described in the past as the “jewel of the Rift Valley” and by the words of Bishop Hannington at his first sight as “the most beautiful view in Africa.” With the backdrop of the eastern wall of the Great Rift Valley, it is a stunning beauty that has always enchanted its visitors. The contrast in colours from the grasslands into the Lake and the sky above can only describe the place as “nature’s studio.” Quote from anonymous traveller – London Evening Post 1990.

Location
It sits on the floor of the Eastern wall of the Great Rift Valley at an altitude of 1000 m above sea level from which the escarpment forms one of Kenya’s most picturesque backdrops. It is 10 km north of the Equator and about 285 kms north of Nairobi.
 
Attractions
It is well known for its hot springs and geysers dotted all around the southern shore of the lake. There are sulphur waters gushing out of the ground and known to have therapeutic values, hence are natural spas and steam baths.It is the home of Africa’s most magnificent antelope, The Greater Kudu and a host of other savannah wildlife: zebra, impala, Grants Gazelle, Klipspringer, Buffalo, Dik-diks, Patas Monkey among others.Predators include Leopard, Cheetah, hyenas, mongoose, jackal, and occasionally sightings of Karakul Cat.

There is one lodge (8 cottages/78 beds), three public campsites near Emos Gate: Acacia campsite, River Campsite & Fig Tree Campsite, one professional campsite and one picnic site: Loburu Picnic Site at the geysers.
