100Km away from Nairobi, the lake is a recreation centre for the Nairobi city dwellers. Activities including water sports, boating & fishing. The lakeside is used for growing high quality flowers & other horticultural products for export. The lake is a bird watchers paradise as over 300 species have been sighted. The bird life is more generous from October to March but the African fish, Eagle, whose hunting skills remain as an attraction for the lake visitors, takes pride of the lake.
