A must visit within easy driving distance of Nairobi. There is only one route there so it is easy following google maps. Magadi town is strange. Everything revolves around the Tata plant. Once you access through the main check point you will start to see...More

I got to enjoy the hot spring sites at the Lake Magadi, perfect time to visit is at sunset. It has been proved to have medicinal effects especially on any skin ailments. It's generally very sunny in Magadi, so drinking alot of water is advised...More

This is a good place for a daytrip with friends, the temperatures are high during the day and very cold during the night. A night at the tented camps was a great experience.

I've driven across the Magadi salt flats a handful of times now, and rarely have I seen such a beautiful landscape. Though the smell is a bit much (get ready for a powerful blast of rotting eggs), the scenery more than makes up for it,...More

This is a good place for a daytrip with friends not recommended for the young ones, the temperatures are high and the water tastes funny so you are highly recommended to carry your own water.

Phenomenon landscape aside, forget even the mirage of the Masai walking at a distance in the scorching sun, the natural spa that has healing powers, and strong skin anti-oxidant sums up the worthwhile day trip to Lake Magadi

Fantastic photo opportunities of the landscape, geological formations and the wildlife. Particularly the flamingos and pelicans.

Lake Magadi is a different place compared to other Conservancies in Kenya. You can see some animals but what it is great here is the landscape. It is like to be in the moon. And sometimes you can see the maasais walking in this inhospitable...More
