Spectacular Samatian

Lake Baringo rises above historic levels

Spectacular Samatian

After four years of higher than average rainfall, Lake Baringo has risen higher than any levels recorded in living memory.

Samatian Island is lush and green, vibrant with life, with the lake level at a phenomenally high level.

The infinity pool is just that, with the lake expected to rise into the mess within days. The kitchen and two rooms are now underwater, but three rooms, and the family cottage remain well above the water level. A new kitchen has been built, and a new mess is under construction, once completed, Samatian will remain open for visitors on a self hosted basis.

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.
