On the first day in Kenya, give everyone a relatively easy trip. Through the Great Rift Valley of East Africa to the Nakuru National Wild Nature Reserve, the first time I saw wild animals, it was really a little excited and the original film of the hh/mouses came [color][color] ~~ In fact, there wasnt much good feeling about animals in the past, but when the giraffes that were sprouting faced us across the road, the heart was completely germinated. I never thought that the giraffe could be hot and spicy. Drip followed by the zebra brothers, the designer's favorite models, the texture is really beautiful, used wherever antelope and cute chimpanzees, real and previous TV The gap is really a bit big, haha, there is no fierce feeling at all, just feel cute and cute ()

Lake Mina Kuru | Flamingo's paradise, pink ocean You say so, like a dream, I finally saw the paradise of the most anticipated flamingo in this trip. A large piece of pink is in front of my eyes. I really feel very shocked. There are not many pink creatures in nature, let alone a number of rare and rare flamingos. If there are thousands of people I saw in Nakuru before, I guess there are tens of thousands of them here, and they can get close to them very close, which is very clear. When I saw this pink sea, it was really beautiful and I could not look away. According to legend, the flamingo will ignite its feathers in the South Flame Mountain with the skyfire, and then bring the fire back to the ancient country of Loulan, which turns into an ashes in Tianyi Mountain, symbolizing the courage and hearty lifestyle. The flamingo is always a few walks side by side. A large flamingo forms several teams, pink and bright, pink and white. A healthy figure is like a symbol of noble blood. There is a pink ocean in Lake Nakuru - the flamingo's paradise, unparalleled beauty.

Navasha Lake | An animal paradise created for a documentary Navasha Lake is one of the most beautiful freshwater lakes in Kenya and the only freshwater lake in Kenya. There are the largest number of hippos and birds here, but the most worthwhile thing in Navasha is the beautiful island. "Into Africa" filmed Navasha Lake, in order to make this film, the film crew created an ecological environment on an island in the heart of the lake, carrying a lot of animals on the island, such as the giraffe zebra antelope horn Horse and so on. After the filming, the animals stayed behind. There were no natural enemies. They thrived on the island. Because there were no carnivores, the whole island was a bird and animal paradise. This is the only trip that can be used to walk close to animals. Take a boat across Navasha Lake to reach the island on that shore. After wandering around to the other side of the island, this is the island of "Into Africa", which is called a no-man's land. It is full of animals and a peaceful, like a paradise in dreams. The body is in hell, eyes enter heaven, and the soul falls into the hometown. I would like to have a thousand lights, and shine through the night, even if the moths are burning, there is no fear. When I saw such a peaceful and hard-to-find landscape, this is my definition of travel. The island is not big. The giraffes, antelopes, wildebeests and zebras we see most are very quiet. Maybe because there are no natural enemies, they dont fight or quarrel. They are clean. Grazing, triumphant. The boatman who took us on the island wore shepherd's clothes, thin and thin body, and it was very lonely to walk on this grassland. This beautiful and lonely animal world, a peaceful and quiet, let people put down all the irritations in the heart, I felt that life is so calm for the first time.

Lake Naivasha, Kenya, is a beautiful lake in the Great Rift Valley. There are many elegant resorts and a paradise for birds. It is a huge bird that flies like Dapeng. Waving strong wings, driving the bulky body to fly upwards, or sliding low-altitude, double-flying, perched on a tall acacia tree, because the weight is too large, so the branches are swaying.

Lake Naivasha is located within 90 km northwest of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, within the Great Rift Valley. Lake Naivasha is one of Kenn's most beautiful freshwater lakes and the only freshwater lake in Kenya. It is rich in trout and African trout. We came here just to find the legendary flamingo. I came to see that the flamingos flew to another lake this season, leaving only the big birds that eat fish.

Located on the north side of Nairobi, Lake Navasha is the only freshwater lake in Kenya. In the middle there is a small island called New Moon Island, which is a private wildlife sanctuary. It is a paradise for many seabirds, and the variety is numerous. Take a boat to Lake Naivasha, the most visible large animal here is the flock of hippos. Countless hippo heads gather together in the water, some only reveal their heads, while others only reveal their ears and eyes. The first time I was less than 5 meters from the hippo, I felt that if the hippo stood out from the water at the moment, we could overturn our boat. Occasionally, a big mouth is a bit angry, and I am really scared. If you pay a guide tip, you can also see the sea eagle.

Lake Nakuru National Park is located in the Rift Valley of East Africa and is known as one of the world's flamingos. It is known as the "Bird Watching Paradise". Because Lake Nakuru is located in the volcanic belt, the lake has a high salinity, which is very suitable for the growth of plankton for the flamingo staple food, so it is not surprising that the flamingo piles are settled here. However, in recent years, due to the rising water level of the lake, the salinity has gradually decreased, and the flamingo has gradually migrated to Lake Boglia not far away, so the number has been significantly reduced, although a group of fires can be seen. The flamingo, but the spectacular scene of the red with Boglia Lake is no match. In addition to seeing flamingos, there are many large animals, such as black and white rhinos, hippos, tree lions, leopards, buffaloes, etc., but our hunting time is affected by some special circumstances. So I didn't find these rare animals. It is quite regrettable to think about it now.

The Nakuru Lake nakuru lodge is located in the Nakuru National Park, on the heights of Lake Nakuru. From the hotel restaurant you can see the beautiful Lake Nakuru. Hot water 24 hours a day, 24 hours power supply. There is also a saltwater lake in front of the hotel's observation deck. There will be groups of herbivores coming to drink water. The hustle and bustle activities here are rather embarrassing, and there are often patrolling hotel staff who use slingshots and wooden sticks to drive them away from harming guests. In the evening, the bushes in the room often have lovely haw rabbits. Dusk, while eating dinner buffet and watching the animals walking around in the sunset, it is also a very good experience. This is the correct way to experience African tourism, and it is integrated into it to feel the wonders and shocks of nature.
