On the way to Nakuru we stopped at Naivasha Lake. It's the largest freshwater lake in Kenya. But due to the flower industry it was some what depleted. We got on a boat to see the hippos which were very impressive close up on the lake. Our guide provoked one until it charged us. Trust me Hippos may look big and slow but they can move fast. Also lots of birdlife around the lake, the highlight being the African fish eagle. The guide threw out fish which the eagle caught expertly, I filmed this not so expertly. I really liked the small black and white kingfisher.
Back in the van to complete the drive to Nakuru. We were staying in a hotel this time not camping. Wandered up into town a little bit, loads of push bike taxis everywhere. Next morning I had a nice shower the water ran out half way through Keeleys she was not so happy and made our white hotel towel black. We were in the park early and the Lake was entrancing pink flamingos and pelicans everywhere the lake was covered from shore to shore. Then we spotted a Rhino happy days not just one but two Rhinos. I love these living dinosaurs look like tanks but are placid herbivores. Giraffes were everywhere as were baboons one jumped onto the van, Joshua quickly accelerated and he jumped off. We went to a veiw point on top of a cliff fantastic panoramic views. The baboons were also enjoying the view awaiting for a tourist to drop food. On our circuit of the lake we saw many more Rhinos and Giraffes and an occasional warthog. On the way out saw a monkey with blue balls. Another very good Safari. Our main problem now is how the rest of the trip will measure up after four such awe inspiring days.
