the hot water springs coming from underground was very relaxing place to visit right in the centre of the rift valley.

Not that much wildlife in Bogoria - birding essentially, and a sometimes questionable scenic beauty due to the roadside pollution.

Visit this region for its remoteness and spectacular display of flamingos. You will feel alone in the world at this beautiful site.

Hot springs, geysers, flamingos, and few tourists.

Lake Bogoria is off the usual safari circuit. It doesn't have the wildlife or resorts of Lake Nakuru and it isn't boat friendly like Lake Baringo. But it does have boiling hot springs, erupting geysers, colorful landscapes, and loads of flamingos. It's seriously hot here - an outdoor spa where you'll see locals taking in the steam to cleanse their skin, sinuses, and some say, their spirit. Worth a detour if you're in the area but not a destination in and of itself.

Nice lake with some hot springs and many flamingos but less mammals. If you combine it with a stay at Lake Baringo, it´s more interesting!
