Day 6: Lake Naivasha Flower Farms
Lake Naivasha is an astonishingly beautiful lake – “the best fresh water lake in the world for birds,” according to the late Roger Tory Peterson famed, American ornithologist – and the various people’s lives which interwove at a spot there named by the Maasai, Oserian meaning “Place of Peace”. The possibilities yielded by this rich, fertile land brought about the birth of Oserian flowers. It begun as a family owned vegetable growing farm in 1969, with a 5 hectare production area and 6 employees. It gradually evolved into the first cut flower production farm in 1982, under the skillful hands of Hans Zwager, his wife, and son Peter. As the flower growing industry in Kenya continued to flourish and develop beyond all expectations, Oserian was opening doors and they now stand at the forefront of the industry as a leading force and the largest multi – crop flower farm in Kenya.

Naivasha is about two hours west of Nairobi and home to a large freshwater lake, and possibly the largest flower industry in the region or world. Flower firms arrived in Naivasha in the late 1980s, attracted by the water, and since then have grown and flourished. The scenic landscape of the lake, set in the plains of the Rift Valley, is now peppered with huge white strips of nylon polytunnels which house the too perfect roses which are cut, packed and even priced before being freighted to stores like M&S and Tesco, etc. for us to buy the next day.

Lake Nakuru has become synonymous with vast flocks of brightly colored flamingos with thousands and sometimes millions of the iconic birds calling the lake’s shores home. Lake Nakuru is often combined with visits to its neighboring lakes, Lake Bogoria and Lake Baringo. Lake Bogoria With its hot springs, spouting geysers, and sweeping views, Lake Bogoria is a picturesque spa destination perfect for a break from the dusty Kenyan roads.

Day 9: Lake Nakuru - Lake Bogoria
Lake Bogoria is a saline water shallow located at the northern region of the Kenyan Rift, 25 km south of Lake Baringo. The reserve, managed by Baringo/Koibatek County, comprises the lake and adjacent lands, with 107 km². In the Colony days the lake was known by the name of its discoverer, the Kampala bishop James Hannington, who in 1885 was the first European to see this place while he was heading for his diocese following Thomson's route. This would be the glory day for the priest, but also his last journey, since upon reaching Lake Victoria he was murdered by order of the cruel king of Buganda, Mwanga II.  Lake Bogoria makes it one of the most spectacular sights in the whole Kenya. J.W. Gregory, the English geologist who travelled the region in 1892, blessed the site as "the most beautiful view in Africa". He wasn't off track. The lake displays a superb scenery of bluish hills populated with dry bush, grasslands and riverine forests, framing the calm water shallow pinned with flamingoes. Beyond the eastern shore, the soil rises abruptly to 600 m in the Laikipia Escarpment. At the opposite edge, the earth forms strangely colored swampy crusts, which break up in deep gaps spitting stinky sulphur waters and steam jets. The close-up geysers, the pink brushstrokes of the flamingoes on the lake, and farther away the dramatic backdrop of the Laikipia Escarpment, everything in Bogoria conveys an unrivalled scenery.

Day 10: Lake Bogoria - Lake Baringo
Lake Baringo is one of the water bodies that line up on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, the Earth's scar that crosses the East of Africa north to south. After the huge Turkana, Baringo is the second northernmost and largest in Kenya, with 130 km². Baringo and Naivasha stand up as the only freshwater shallows in the Kenyan Rift. The large fresh water body is a shelter for more than 400 bird species that give the area its main attractive. The lake is -or used to be- a quiet and solitary oasis embedded in the abrupt and arid land that foresees the northern deserts. Until the end of the 19th century, Baringo and Bogoria were only visited by caravans of slaves; the remains of Fort Baringo, dating back to those years, are still visible. The lake was first described by Scottish explorer Joseph Thomson in 1883. Nine years later, in 1892, the English geologist J.W. Gregory explained the formation of the Rift Valley from his observations at Baringo. n addition to bird watching walks and boat trips under the guidance of a professional ornithologist, the lake offers a range of activities which include fishing, water sports (ski, wind-surfing), camel rides, day trips to the nearby Lake Bogoria National Reserve and visits to a Njemps village, where you can get a sip of the local handcrafts and dances. Activities are mainly run by the lake's two lodges, Lake Baringo Club and Island Camp. Local fishermen also offer boat trips, during which they throw fresh fish as a bait for the fish eagles.
