Lake Magadi, Kenya’s most southerly Rift Valley lake, covers over 100 sq kms and has a distinctive pink and white colour formed by crystallized alkaline soda deposits. Located in a semi desert area, Magadi‘s temperature hovers in the upper 30s on most days and a series of hot springs around the lake’s periphery intermittently spray water from the ground at temperatures of 45ºC. The birdlife is very good, particularly at certain times of the year when up to 20,000 lesser flamingos arrive to line the shores. The vivid colours also provide some interesting photographic opportunities.
