Lake Baringo Bird List, Kenya

Picture of a Goliath heron, the biggest African Heron, taken at Lake Baringo
Goliath Heron
We stayed for two nights at Lake Baringo Club in July 1994, and took two walks with the ornithologist, and a boat trip with him on the Lake.
There is a good range of habitats in this very hot area, from the lake and shore to the steep Rift Valley cliffs.
In 2001, we stayed two nights at Baringo Island Camp, which was very nice, but doesn't have as many birds.
