|Lake Baringo Club|
Lake Baringo Club is a neat compact lodge situated on the shores of Lake Baringo, approx. 04 - 05 hrs drive by road from Nairobi. The lake is an ornithological paradise with over 460 bird species recorded.|
The 45 rooms are cool and comfortable with a central overhead fan, mosquito nets and a decent shower. Each room has a newsletter with details of what's nesting where in the lodge grounds.
There is never a dull moment at the Club. Morning and evening bird walks, always accompanied by our resident ornithologist, give visitors the opportunity to see several magnificent birds of prey, noisy, restless 'bush' birds and the numerous species frequenting the shore. There are plenty of small motorized boats for hire, all captained by knowledgeable bird enthusiasts.
And there is so much to see on the Lake - hippo and crocodile at close quarters, a bejeweled assortment of kingfishers, local fisherman sorting the day's catch, and of course the scenic beauty of a Rift Valley Lake. Our daily visit to a local tribe's Manyatta (village) is always popular with guests. The Njemps are related to the Masai and Samburu and speak a similar language.
The lovely gardens of the Club are a pleasure to behold and the swimming pool, surrounded by clusters of exotic shrubs, attract bathers throughout the day.
