This small reserve can only be visited as a day trip and is on few tourist itineraries. Most of the reserve consists of a large, algae-rich lake. Since the flamingos left Lake Nakuru after the flooding of 2012, Lake Bogoria is now one of the best places to see big flocks of these birds. There is only one road along the lake, which you need to backtrack to leave the reserve. Aside from birds, there is very little wildlife. Read more about Lake Bogoria National Reserve, Africa

How to reach?
Lake Bogoria is located 250km/155mi from Nairobi. Bogoria is mostly visited as a side trip from Nakuru. The lake is more frequently visited now, because many of the flamingos that left Lake Nakuru, due to unsuitable conditions, made Bogoria their new home. You can either join a safari in Nairobi or rent a car and visit Lake Bogoria independently.
The southern entrance to the reserve is located 38km/23mi north of Nakuru – a 4WD is essential. The sealed road from Nakuru to the northern entrance is 150km/93mi.
Most visitors to Kenya come through Nairobi, which is one of the largest transport hubs on the continent. International flights arrive in Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), 15km/9mi southeast of Nairobi.
