Wildlife of the Rift Valley

Kenya’s Rift Valley is one of the country’s premier birdwatching regions, with an astonishing congregation of species year-round, but especially during the November to March migration period. Flamingos are generally present year-round, but can move from lake to lake. Lake Baringo is the pick for general birdwatching.

Lake Nakuru National Park is one of Kenya’s finest parks, with both black and white rhinos in residence, as well as lions, leopards, reintroduced Rothschild’s giraffes, zebras, buffaloes and olive baboons.
