is the most southerly of the Rift Valley
lakes in Kenya
This is a very hostile but striking environment, a caustic soda lake populated by flamingoes and home to a large industrial extraction plant.
To the west of the lake stands the impressive Nguruman Escarpment
, at the foot of which some significant wildlife conservancies are surrounded by Maasai
Here lie some interesting accommodation options, the best of which are the upmarket Shompole Lodge
and the more competitive Olaikar camp
Above and beyond the escarpment to the west lie the Loita Hills
, a remote upland area cloaked in sacred forests.
This fabulous and virtually untrodden area is where we operate the wonderful multiple night trek known as Loita Trail 4
