About Lake Baringo

Wholesome Travel Experiences

Lake Baringo website is owned by Moses, born and bred by the shores.

In the early years, I primarily earned my living from hook and line fishing along the rocky shores; this was major during weekends and school holidays. This was the mid-80s to early 90s, shortly before I joined secondary school.

My entry into this level of education came with tougher challenges that required better solutions. It was all to do with money access; it is at that point that I started associating closely with visitors scouring my neighbourhood for wildlife.


It wasn’t long before I found interest in birds and took it seriously. It made me establish a network of birders all over the world. In the late 90s, I pursued a degree in education technology after I missed out on tourism studies.

Even though I was meant to teach after this, I still found comfort in waiting longer to see what my birding, as a hobby would translate to a source of livelihood

In deed, it did usher in light at the end of the tunnel, as in 2004, in my daily quest to know whom the visitors in the village were, I came across a Swede (pictured) who was keen to see a bird I would spot in the least time possible.

So, we immediately became friends and he ended up revealing his future plans to lead a group of birders to Kenya. I was therefore to play host as the local guide, which did work out fours year later.

So, this became my life. Through it, I have traversed the country, combing its interiors for endemics and range- restricted species.

With experience spanning over 9 years in the field, I can plan all sorts of trips around the country and the East African countries through my partners.

THE WEBSITE was an initiative of a travelling entrepreneur, Mr Mark Archers.

Mark ran Roberts camp for six years, giving it a facelift that saw enhanced marketability of the Lake as a destination and Baringo County generally.

Mark agreed to my request to take over the website at a small fee when his time in Kenya ran out. He is currently in Ireland.
