Pelicans at Lake Bogoria

Recently, I've been featuring the beautiful Soi Safari Lodge and wildlife around Lake Baringo, Kenya.

Today I begin featuring the area around Lake Bagoria, Kenya. This lake is one of the least visited lakes of the Rift Valley in Kenya and is located about 60 miles north of the city of Nakuru.

Don't be deceived by the seemingly short distance. It will take you longer than 1 hour's drive to get there but you will get to see a lot of the countryside during the drive.

If you go, I recommend you take a tour from one of the hotels or get the hotel to help you hire a driver for the day. You might also choose to stay at one or more of the hotels in the general area.

This lake is home to a hot springs (more about that in another post) and to various birds like the lesser flamingo which I featured in an earlier post.

On this day I was interested in the pelicans which seemed to congregate in a more secluded section of the lake, away from the tourists and flamingos.

It was a real treat to see these pelicans peacefully floating on the water in small groups.


Joining in with Wild Bird Wednesday today.

Hi Joyful, Interesting photos of the birds! You take the kind of pictures that make me want to go and see a place in person. How are things in Vancouver? Have you started working on any plants on your balcony? I'm still spending a lot of time sorting things out after my move, but slowing getting back to more enjoyable things like blogging. :-) Have a great day! John

You are so lucky to be so close to such beautiful birds. They either didn't care that you were there or you have a very nice camera. It looked so peaceful.
