In the north of Kenya you will find gems of incredible beauty that appear like oasis in the midst of lunar and magnificent nothingness, surrounded by incredible animals and colours.
Lake Logipi is one such gem.
A minor lake in the northern Rift Valley, it lies at the northern end of the arid Suguta Valley, one of the hottest places on earth, nicknamed "The Valley of Death", where gigantic granite rocks perch atop piles of volcanic ash, deep gorges of layered rock give way to kilometres and kilometres of sand dunes created by relentless winds that whip through the valley.
About six kilometres wide and three kilometres long, it has a maximum depth of five metres and is separated from Lake Turkana by 'The Barrier', a group of young volcanic mountains that last erupted in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Lake Logipi is a saline and alkaline expanse of green, streaked with pink by the plumage of the flamingos that populate its barren banks, which are coloured brown by soft layers of silt.
In the middle stands a rocky island, Naperito Rock, about 370 metres high, known as Cathedral Rock, from which hot springs of saline help to maintain the presence of water even in periods of extreme drought.
In recent years, more and more lesser and greater flamingos have been migrating from Lake Nakuru and Lake Bogoria to these remote waters as the presence of cyanobacteria and plankton, on which they feed, is particularly abundant.
Flying over this little gem located in one of Kenya's most inhospitable places is a spectacular and unforgettable experience, and many safari companies offer helicopter or small plane excursions, combined with an exploration of the Suguta Valley and its unexpected and bewildering landscapes.
