One of our early trips was a camping trip to Lake Baringo. On the way we stopped at Kerio View, which I have explored in another message, and then went to Lake Bogoria. It is a beautiful lake without any facilities there. A classic small Rift Valley lake.
We left the plateau and made our way down into the Rift Valley. You can really see that edge of the rift in this shot. After a beautiful lunch at Kerio View we went down into the valley. It grew much hotter as we went down.
It is really such an interesting feeling to be going down into this incredible valley.
You can really get a sense of the tectonic processes at work in eastern Africa.
Just another view of this amazing landscape.
Our next stop was Lake Baringo, where we were staying for the night. We stayed at Robert's Camp, in tents very close to the edge of the lake. The restaurant there is the Thirsty Goat, and it was some of the best food we had during the first months in Kenya. The facilities at Robert's Camp were very nice. Keep in mind that this isn't a resort, and isn't supposed to be, though there are resort hotels on the lake. Our group of Canadians, Swedes, Danes, and the two Americans (Evan and I) were not interested in resort living....
