Baringo is a fresh water lake in a harsh dry rock strewn landscape where it's hard to say what the inhabitants of this area manage to survive on. Much of the ground vegetation has been decimated by the herds of goats, leaving it bare and vulnerable to erosion.

There is a stark beauty about the rocky escarpments that surround Baringo and the lake itself is beautiful too. There are a number of small islands reached by motor boat from the mainland, and these are the main attraction for visitors to the area. Two of the islands have accommodation from which you can water-ski, birdwatch and fish. Baringo is a bit of an outpost and not very developed as far as tourism is concerned, but it has great potential for the more adventurous who want to stray from the beaten track.
