  • Standing room only!

    When you think of Lake Bogoria, you immediately think flamingoes. However, whatever you are expecting, I doubt whether you will be prepared for the carpet of pinkness that confronts you as you first catch sight of the lake. I have never seen so many animals in one place at one time, and the fact that their colour is such a stark contrast to their...

    I think that flamingoes are at their most interesting when they're taking off, as it is them that you really get to appreciate their extraodinary design.It has to be said that if you were designing a bird to be efficient in takeoff and flight, a flamingo would not be your preferred design!

  • Even the bloody ostriches are pink!

    As we drove through the communal farming areas that link the main road to the entrance of Lake Bogoria, we came across a surprising number of ostrich - usually small groups of two or three males. Other than looking supremely healthy and unfazed by close proximity to humans, we were surprised to notice that the exposed skin of their necks and legs...

    Nature offers a myriad of ecological niches to be occupied by enterprising critters, but it has to be said that some are more desirable than others!Take the oxpeckers for instance - wonderful birds whose diet consists almost solely of ticks which they 'harvest' from wildlife and livestock in a symbiotic relationship that keeps the birdies fed and...
