Kenya, Naivasha Lake – To Hippoes, Buffalos and Water Birds – VIDEO

Published: 19.3.2019
Leaving out Lake Naivasha during a visit to Kenya would be a sin. Unlike other national parks, you do not pay for entry, but you can almost certain that you will see hippos, plenty of waterfowl and probably buffaloes or giraffes in the immediate vicinity.

Here you only need to rent a guided boat and go exploring. It will cost you between $ 30 and $ 40 an hour, which is a good enough time to drive you up to 12. I recommend you go from the dock in Karagita town so that your return comes just after sunset. Or get up and go east. During the day, most of the animals are hiding from the heat, in addition, you would be really hot.

I was lucky to have a great guide with which you could bargain for the price. He wasn't trying to drive me as far as possible and persuade me to prolong my trip, and yet he had an understanding of the need to take pictures and shoot and he liked to stop me where he needed it.

The lake has risen dramatically some time ago, so today you will see plenty of stumps of mature trees that create an unforgettable scenery. At the same time, they are happy to use all kinds of water birds. Only during the first few minutes of the cruise we passed a few cormorants, a pair of local kingfishers, a lot of highly repulsive marabs and a trio of pelicans. Several times I also saw the local eagle, unfortunately I did not even once took a picture of the close.

But by far the biggest attraction of the lake are hippos, which are said to be several hundred. If you are lucky, you can see them on the shore at dusk from some camps, but you are almost certain of the boat. Immersion up to the ears looks quite innocent, but never forget that it is the most dangerous large animal in Africa.

You will see lots of animals right on the shores of the lake. Waterlogged soil and overgrown shallows are a paradise for wading birds, such as herons, ibis, storks and storks. I managed to see a few giraffes and a few buffaloes. And all in just half an hour and $ 15.
