Flamingos, Hotsprings and a whole lot more

I have just spent a fun-filled weekend gallivanting all over western Kenya’s rift valley lakes. It has been a weekend of flamingos, hot springs, game drives, camping and all manner of partying.
The camping at lake Elmenteita was lovely and the campfire yielded some interesting conversations. There were flamingos everywhere, making the whole lake shore pink. I got to see the rare white rhino (it is actually an ashy shade of grey) for the first time at the lake Nakuru national park. I had an accidental natural steambath at lake Bogoria's hotsprings which nearly scalded me.

The whole trip was a well deserved break from sunny Kampala which was beginning to get on my nerves.

I thank my Kenyan friends who made the whole trip a memorable and fun experience.
