“Viewing from lake Magadi in NgoroNgoro Crater when the flamingoes are in full concert is an absolutely magnificent sight. The greater and lesser flamingoes flock in by the thousands. The lesser (the pink and smaller of the two) are exclusive to soda lakes and feed on the algae while the greater (tall and white) feed on crustaceans. The chorus of thousands of flamingo’s together sounds very much like a rumbling engine in the distance. The hippos lay at the edge of the water right where a fresh water stream seeps into the lake, making it the perfect place to sun themselves and the flamingos to enjoy bathing while the black-winged stilts feed along the shore.” – John Banovich
