Lake Baringo

Lake Baringo is the most northern of the Rift Valley lakes of Kenya with a surface areaof about 130 sq km. The lake is fed by two rivers, El Molo[?] and Ol Arabel[?] and has no obvious outlet, despite this it's is one of only two freshwater lakes in the Rift Valley in Kenya, the other being Lake Naivasha[?]. It lies off the beaten track in a hot and dusty setting and over 470 species of birds have been recorded there, occasionally including migrating flamingos. This area is little affected by tourism and is situated at the southern end of a region of Kenya inhabited largely by nomadic tribesmen including Samburu[?], Rendille[?], Turkana[?] and Kalenjin[?].
