Flight of the Fish Eagle
Debbie writes... Highly recommended is a boat trip on Lake Baringo. You are rewarded with an abundance of exotic birdlife, including the majestic fish eagle. The local guides are well rehearsed at whistling for the fish eagles as they throw in a baited-fish. Within seconds the fish eagle swoops right alongside your boat and scoops up the fish in his claws. It is incredibly magical!
