Welcome to Lake Bogoria


While the isolated wooded area at the lake’s southern end is home to rarely seen leopards, klipspringers, gazelles, caracals and buffaloes, an increase in human activity means that the extravagantly horned greater kudu is increasingly elusive. You can explore on foot or bicycle. If you’d like a guide, enquire at Loboi Gate.
