L.Oloiden, a hidden gem in Naivasha.

Lake Oloidien is a small, shallow alkaline lake located in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya. It is one of the satellite lakes of Lake Naivasha because they are smaller and are located in close proximity to Lake Naivasha.

The interconnectedness of these lakes has important ecological implications, as changes in water quality or quantity in one lake can affect the entire ecosystem. Lake Naivasha and its satellite lakes are home to a diverse array of plant and animal species, including hippos, flamingos, and fish species such as tilapia and black bass.
