Lake Baringo - freshwater lake in the East African Rift Valley. The lake is located at 1,100 meters above sea level, its area is 168 km2. length does not exceed 22 km., and its width of 11 km. On the lake lives a great variety of birds as well as crocodiles and hippos.

What is interesting in the immediate vicinity of the lake inhabited by people who are not afraid of crocodiles neighborhood. Local is explained by the fact that the lake is rich in fish and crocodiles do not need to attack people. I personally saw the boys threw sticks in the small crocodile that lurks in the grass. The latest attack on a person was registered in the early eighties of the twentieth century.
Near Baringo there are campsites, where for a small fee, about 500 KSH (about $ 6) you can live close to the lake and watch the evening, both on shore leave hippos graze. But before be inhabited need to sign a document stating that you be notified and will have no claim if you come hippopotamus or crocodile attack.

I was at Lake Baringo in January 2013 as part of a safari to the national parks of Kenya. In view of the limited time visiting the lake consisted of two hour boat trips. Photos of this tour can be found on this page.
