Lake Magadi

Deep in the heart of Southern Kenya’s Maasai land is the unearthly Lake Magadi. This 104 sq km soda lake is completely surrounded by vast natural salt flats.

These sweltering hot plains prevent any animals reaching the alkaline lake at its centre. For this reason, thousands of flamingo descend on the lake each year to nest on elevated mud mounds at the lake’s edge safe from any potential predators. Freshwater springs at the Lake’s shore attract a host of other birds.

A journey to Magadi is to enter another world. The baking salt plains stretch into horizons of a shimmering heat haze, while the shallow lake heaves with the pink waves of nesting flamingo. The otherworldly atmosphere is compounded by the intense heat and the isolation.

Magadi is often the final destination for treks from the Nguruman escarpment to the Loita Hills. Proximity to Nairobi means that trekkers can leave the heat of Magadi behind and ascend 1,000 metres to the highland cool of the Loita Hills.
