“Boat trip on lake Oloidien”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is a little heard of lake even with people like us who are Kenyans. It's simply beautiful so serene and peaceful. And a chance to view the hippos and all types of birds especially the lesser flamingoes was just awesome. Boat ride was well organised and guide knew the place well.

“$50 well spent”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

There are few places where you can get in a boat and be so close to resident hippos, flamingoes and countless water birds including pelicans, herons, egrets etc. The guide will explain what you encounter and the $50 is per BOAT and NOT per person. Make sure you get a fixed price before you get on as I have heard one or two people were happy to hand over $100 between them. The Lake is very calm and seeing the hippos at water level is a must see :)

“Walk by the Lake”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Liked that we could get out the ranger and take a walk along the lake side and see wildlife. Plenty of wildlife to be seen.
