Flamingo Lake Walk – Walking from the camp

The Rift Valley’s Lake Natron is the chosen mating ground of the endangered Lesser flamingo. The long-legged waterfowl may flourish here, but to most other living creatures, Lake Natron is hell on earth. The lake’s steeply alkaline waters are unattractive to small birds, while the lake Flats provide a variety of environments for birds that do well in the alkali oasis. Best time to spot birds at Lake Natron: the flamingos of Natron lay their eggs normally during the end of the dry season in September and October but the hatching starts in the early parts of the wet season and climaxes by December.
