General Information About Lake Baringo (Ksh. 18,000 | $320 )
Lake Baringo is one of the water bodies that line up on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, the Earth’s scar that crosses the East of Africa north to south. After the huge Turkana, Baringo is the second northernmost and largest in Kenya, with 130 km². Baringo and Naivasha stand up as the only freshwater shallows in the Kenyan Rift.
The lake is not officially ranked as a protected area, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay. On the road to the lake, the Baringo County established a Visitors and Statistics Centre, which is just a fancy name for a toll gate. Fortunately, the 200 Kenyan shillings per person (for non-residents) are still very far away from the USD 80 you will have to pay in some national parks.
The large fresh water body is a shelter for more than 400 bird species that give the area its main attractive. The lake is -or used to be- a quiet and solitary oasis embedded in the abrupt and arid land that foresees the northern deserts. Until the end of the 19th century, Baringo and Bogoria were only visited by caravans of slaves; the remains of Fort Baringo, dating back to those years, are still visible. The lake was first described by Scottish explorer Joseph Thomson in 1883. Nine years later, in 1892, the English geologist J.W. Gregory explained the formation of the Rift Valley from his observations at Baringo.
