Lake Baringo water levels

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.

Tough times for those whose homes and livelihoods have been negatively impacted by the rising water, and our thoughts go out to them. Hopefully their is a silver lining and the high waters provide opportunity in other ways.
