Turkana to Hippo Point at Lake Naivasha

We left Sibiloi National Park and made our way to Lake Naivasha for a restful two days at Hippo Pointe Lodge. Again, I was lucky in that I got to go by heli with the doors open. I still have a lot to learn about photographing from a heli but I will cherish what I took forever. We first flew to Teleki’s Crater and landed on top of the ridge for a spot of coffee. Incredibly dramatic views of the lava fields and algae filled green water not to mention actually landing on the edge of a crater. And again, out of the blue a tribesman appeared out of nowhere!We made our way to another crater for breakfast that spanned 6km. We passed through an incredible canyon that I believe is called Painted Valley that had mushroom like rock formations called Hoodoo rock formations, passed by about a seven km desert, flew by an incredible rock formation (can’t remember the name), and saw zillions of flamingos because they like to feed on the Spirulina in the lake. So many that the coastline appeared pink. Oh and Cathedral Rock mirrored in Lake Logipi was stunning! According to the itinerary, we flew in the Suguta Valley to Lake Borgoria and down the Great Rift Valley and landed on the lake shore of Hippo Pointe Lodge.
