Lake Nakuru, one of the Rift Valley soda lakes in Kenya, is an ideal spot to spot pink flamingos. Every year, a large number of tourists choose to head to the lake that is home to a large gathering of long-necked and long-legged flamingos. The hot months of January and February are the ideal times to visit the lake when flamingos visit the lake to feed on the algae.

Explore Hot Springs and Unique Geysers in Lake Bogoria

A hyper saline lake in the Rift Valley region of the country, Lake Bogoria is a great place to see geysers in Africa. Boasting approximately 200 springs that combine to form geysers, the lake appeals to the nature lovers from all over the world.
