Lying 1000-1600m above sea level in the Rift Valley Lake Bogoria National Reserve covers 107km2 within a catchment basin and is geothermically active on the western shore with geysers and hot springs.
The lake supports large numbers of flamingos and at times as many as 2 million can be found feeding in the lake.
