Kenyan Safari - Day 8


""Lake Naivasha is the highest and purest of the Rift Valley lakes. Your boat cruise (10:30) here takes you to the breeding grounds of pelicans, fish eagles, and cormorants. Spot the primeval hippos lurking in the shallow water and the zebras and antelopes grazing on Crescent Island. In the afternoon traverse the Rift Valley and ascend its western rim. You're now in Masai country, where sedentary crop farming gives way to nomadic cattle herding. Red-clad, spear-wielding Masai warriors tend their multi-colored herds among the wild animals of the Loita Plains, admirably unimpressed by the presence of large predators. (FB,L,D)""
