Naivasha:Between Mount Longonot and Mount Kenya, in the Central Rift Valley, is where you'll find it. Additionally, it contains a dam that provides Nairobi with a significant amount of water.

It has an average depth of 270 metres and a maximum depth of 977m (3,195 feet) (885 ft). This Lagoon bears Queen Victoria's name because she was frequently visited by English explorers during her reign, when she made her first trip to Africa as an empress.There are several attractions in the nation. Its wildlife is varied, lovely, and abundant, and it is the origin of humankind.

Magadi: 584 square kilometres in size, it is situated in the Rift Valley (225 square miles). After being obstructed by volcanic activity for millions of years, it was created when the water from an underground lake burst through a portion of rock. You will be fascinated by the Maasai community in regards to their lifestyle. It is a source of soda ash which is used to manufacture salt.

 Bogoria: 438 square kilometre area, close to a National Park, in the rift (155 square miles). The lake was created when volcanic activity forced water upward through cracks in the earth's crust, creating a pool or basin that was encircled by hills on all sides except one, where it empties into another lake. It also has hot springs. Locals use the hot water to boil eggs within minutes. You should go try for yourself.

Nakuru: Has a size of approximately 990 square miles and is situated in Nakuru city. One of Kenya's most popular tourist destinations, which is home to hippos and crocodiles.
