 RIFT VALLEY LAKES REGION

The Rift Valley Lakes Region are those lakes within the East African Rift, which runs north-south through the eastern side of the African continent from Ethiopia in the north, to Malawi in the south.  Many of the Kenyan Rift Valley Lakes are fresh water; your tour will focus on 3 of the soda lakes, Lake Bogoria, Lake Nakuru and Lake Baringo.  The flamingo droppings produce large amounts of algae in the lakes, which produces specific vegetation, as well as the evolution of many fish species; these droppings, in turn attracts the flamingos.
