“Flamongos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is a pink place because of the flamingos. It is definitely better than Lake Naivasha which does not have as many falmingos as it is well known and advertised for.

“Little unknown lake”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The lake has boating, nice view of the surrounding area, accacia trees, hundreds if not thousands of flamingoes, groups of hippos and a wonderful view as you boat area. I am not but was meant to understand that one can do camping at the secure areas of the lake shores.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Ten minutes down the road from Lake Naiviasha, Lake Oloidien is worth a stop.
Here we saw a small but impressive flock of flamingos, but not nearly the number I had
seen on Lake Nukuru in 2011. The real appeal of this lake is that one is able to walk
along the shoreline

“Little known secret.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is a lake very close to the main Lake Naivasha. Boat trips are possible but rather expensive unless you are in a group. Walking part way round the lake is allowed and the best way to see the birdlife. It is extremely quiet that's why I enjoyed it.
