Samatian Island is a small island with breath-taking views across the bronze waters of the Great Rift Valley’s Lake Baringo. The beauty of the lake and her surrounds are legendary, with spectacular sunsets and a dazzling array of stunning birds while Njemps fishermen continue a lifestyle little changed for over 200 years.
