This is a place that will give your girl a breathtaking experience. Crater is an awesome place for lovers to while time away.
While here, show her you were smart during your geography classes by regaling her with stories of how tectonic and volcanic forces led to the formation of this hole.
Vibe her on the genesis of Menengai. Tell her it is the corruption of the words ‘many gods’ by the agikuyu who live around.
Not being able to explain how the volcanic forces would create such a formation and the frequent fire outbreaks during the dry seasons, locals said it was the work of many gods — Menengai.
2. Lord Egerton Castle
If you have never heard about this monument, then you understand little about seduction.
Lord Egerton Castle stands lonely on a vast piece of land.
It was built by Mr Maurice Egerton as he tried to woo and seduce a little girl who had stolen his heart. Not blessed with the art of charm to make her heart throb, Egerton thought material would win her.
Unknown onto him, another young man was melting the girl’s heart with pure charm in England.
That is how he was jilted and ended up living a bitter life in this monument.
Interesting, when he died his castle became a nest for lovers.

“National Park”
诗意情节”One of the famous filming locations for the movie “Out Of Africa” is known as “bird watching paradise”. There are about 450 species of birds in the park, especially the flamingo. As soon as the car passed by, the dust was flying. Although my equipment has been equipped with a magic headscarf that can prevent sun and dust, I think that if we continue like this, the special 3M mask for Beijing haze prevention should be on the stage, but the natural scenery is great”

juki235″Lake Naivasha is a well-known nature reserve in Kenya. Thousands of hippos live in this lake with a radius of more than 50 square kilometers. Everyone can take a cruise and watch these up close under the guidance of a guide, moving docilely and fiercely. The scenery of Lake Naivasha is also very beautiful. Many fishery resources are also the lake of life for the local people.”

juki235″Visiting the famous Lake Naivasha and taking a local small cruise is indispensable. The boatman drives a four-person boat and shuttles on the lake. You can see beautiful waterbirds, hippos with only their heads out, and hesitate in the lake. The crocodile, here, you can fully experience the harmony of nature. Of course, don’t put your hands in the lake easily, because this is quite a dangerous action.”

Todemmy”A good place to eliminate all stress. A great place to relax in nature. You can bring family and friends to cook together and celebrate with wine. Plus points are caves, waterfalls and lakesides. Nominal entrance fee and facility fee. Would rather drive there by yourself. The best time of the day to visit is at 9 o’clock in the morning, leaving before 2 o’clock, or before 1 o’clock, leaving at the end of the day.”

Tiramisu8511″To approach Lake Bogoria, you need to pass through a mud swamp, with large swamps of flamingos roosting and hovering in front of you, and the formation is spectacular. Lake Boglia is a very shallow lake. The clear water reflects the beautiful figure of flamingos. The entire lake is dyed pink, like colorful clouds falling in the green mountains and green water. A breeze with a faintly salty taste blew across our face, set against the gentle sunlight, the flamingos chirping in the lake water, we dared not speak loudly, for fear of disturbing their nap.”

4. Lord Egerton Castle
Also known as the “Castle of Love”, it was built by Lord Egerton in 1938 for his bride-to-be after she claimed that the 6 bedroom house he lived in was as small as a chicken coop. He never married, never wanted to see any woman and also banned any woman from his property. Lord Egerton spent the rest of his life in solitude, until his death in 1958.
Ironically, Lord Egerton Castle is now a favourite spot for lovers, weddings, engagement proposals and lovers’ picnics on a regular basis. It is a certainly a spot worth visiting.

Lake Elementaita attracts many visiting flamingo, and it shores are grazed by zebra, gazelle, eland and families of warthog.

The close distance to Nakuru offers the chance to stay at one of the lodges at Lake Nakuru and make a day trip to Elmentaita. Nevertheless, this lake has its own lodging choices. We recommend that you visit during the dry seasons that occur from July to October, January and February because wildlife viewing is better.
