Lake Baringo is at the threshold of Northern Kenya, and its fresh waters are an oasis in the arid plains.This is the traditional home of the Njemps tribe, a unique people who are the only pastoral, cattle herding, tribe who also fish. Among other pastoral tribes such as the Maasai, eating fish is a taboo. The 129 sq km lake is well stocked with fish, and attracts many Pelicans, Cormorants and Fish Eagles.

Lake Baringo is also well populated with Crocodile. The lake itself is truly beautiful, surrounded by volcanic ranges that stretch as far as the eye can see. At the lakes heart is Ol Kokwe Island, a stark rocky island that is home to Njemps villages and a well appointed camp. This is an excellent base for exploring the lake, with boat trips ideal for bird and hippo spotting. Lake Baringo is an ideal stopover on a safari to Northern Kenya.
