The lake lies in a trough below the Ngendelel Escarpment, a sheer wall 600 metres (2,000 ft) high. The lake covers 32 square kilometres (12 sq mi). It is geothermically active on the western shore, with geysers and hot springs. The geologist J.W. Gregory described the lake in 1892 as “the most beautiful view in Africa”. The reserve is in a semi-arid area. The only major river feeding the lake is the Waseges River, which rises on the northern slopes of the Aberdare Range. The lake is surrounded by grasslands dotted with bushes. There is acacia-ficus woodland to the south, and the north merges into a papyrus swamp. The park was opened in November 1970. The lake is alkaline, feeding blue-green algae, which in turn feed flamingoes. At times, the number of flamingoes feeding in the lake may be as high as two million. 06:30AM Breakfast 08:00AM Depart for Lake Bogoria National Reserve and arrive at the Lake Bogoria Spa Resort in time for Lunch. After some freshening up, the guests will go for a late afternoon game drive in the reserve to see the flamingoes. DBB
