Lake Bogoria National Reserve

Lake Bogoria National Reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley, covering Lake Bogoria and the land immediately surrounding the lake, a semi-arid area. The only major river feeding Lake Bogoria is the Waseges River, which rises on the northern slopes of the Aberdare Ranges. The lake is famous for its geysers and hot springs, and for hosting large numbers of the lesser flamingo. 135 species of bird have been recorded in the reserve. They include little grebe, pratincole, swift, little bee-eater, cape wigeon, yellow-billed stork, African spoonbill, augur buzzard, gabar goshawk, water dikkop, great tit, starling, hornbill and crombec. The reserve has a herd of the relatively uncommon greater kudu and other game life like the buffalo, zebra, cheetah, baboon, warthog, caracal, spotted hyena, impala and dik dik.
