The lake itself has changed due to drought and then flooding - another sign of global warming. There isn't a single flamingo to be seen. Very sad harsh reality of our changing planet.

When we were there the Flamingoes had flown to Lake Baringo. You can ask the locals or hotel you are staying at and they may tell you where they are.
