Some of us decided to leave early to visit Lake Naivasha about 60 Kms. from Lake Nakuru on our way to Masai Mara (not included in our itinerary). This is also one of the soda lakes in the rift valley. For US$ 30 you get an interesting 1 1/2 hours boat ride around the lake & I was glad to have covered it. Boating means sharing the lake with birdlife and the Hippos whom you see here. As long as we keep a respectable distance, chances of toppling the boat are almost non-existant!
Red Lobed coots very similiar to our own Common coots

The magnificentAfrican fishing eagle were all around the lake waiting for their share of the goodies that the lake could offer -do click on this picture to have a good view. (Press the back button on your browser to return to this page)
