Swimming Ostrich

Rescued Ostrich swimming in Lake Baringo

Swimming Ostrich

Rescued Ostrich, George, has been filmed swimming in lake Baringo in Kenya's Great Rift Valley.

George was recently moved from Roberts' Camp on the western shores of Lake Baringo to a more natural environment on Longicharu Island's Ruko Conservation Area.

Ruko is a realtively new conservation area, gaining recent international press from the amazing Giraffe translocation, partly via barge, across Lake Baringo.

The Emakoko - Nairobi National Park

Wilderness lodge 20 minutes from the heart of the city

The Emakoko - Nairobi National Park

The Emakoko is a new lodge situated in an acacia forest in a gorge alongside the Nairobi National Park.

Only 30 minutes from Nairobi city centre, and the easiest and most scenic of transfers from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, this new lodge is a wonderful base for those passing through Nairobi.

Lake Baringo water levels

Following our recent visit to lake Baringo, we looked through some photo archives from visits over the years to compare the lake levels at Samatian Island

In 2013, Lake Baringo has exceeded all higher water levels since records began. The amount of water is quite astounding to anyone who knows this lake, and what is normally a breathtaking natural wonder has become even more amazing; a naturalists paradise.
