is a shallow soda lake and its water level can vary
by as much as four meters (13 feet) annually. Sometimes the lake
dries completely leaving behind a white dusty plain of soda. When
this happens, dust storms and dust devils can whip up the soda deposits
way up into the atmosphere.
When the weather and water conditions are favorable,
however, one can see millions of lesser flamingoes at Lake Nukuru,
as Lake Nukuru provides and excellent source of spiraling, a type
of blue green algae that these beautiful birds love.
Mbweha Camp - this property, which is tucked away
in the 6,400-acre Congreve Game Conservancy at the southern boundary
of Lake Nakuru National Park, provides excellent views of both the
Ebrru and the Mau mountain ranges. This property is dotted with
nine cottages, each with its private veranda, and spacious circular-shaped
rooms. These cottages are constructed out of local volcanic rock,
which erupted from the earth‘s crust during the formation
of the rift valley. Although there are no formal nighttime activities,
you can enjoy the sunken bar and spacious lounge that has a large
open fireplace to warm you up when the weather is cool. Mbweha Camp
is quite a romantic settling!
