Lake Baringo is good stopover destination to break a long African safari across the Rift Valley. Lake Baringo has now become Kenyans popular weekend destination. The brown slightly saline lake is a home for hippos, crocodiles and over 400 species of birds. Lake Baringo has an average depth of only 8 meters (25 ft), and its three islands (Ol Kokwa, Teddy Bear, and Gibraltar) are breeding grounds for the statuesque, and one and a half meter (5 ft) Goliath heron, the largest of the heron species. The surrounding countryside is arid, red soiled and sparsely vegetated. The shores are a mixture of sand marsh, which provide some cover and shade for the resident hippos. Accommodation is available at Lake Baringo Club or Samatian Island Lodge.
