Flamingo. The pink bird is worldwide famous. Mannequins of it flood the yards of many westerners in the cities and suburbs. However, have you seen a live one? The long legs, long neck and pink mass of feathers describes a beauty creature found in few places in the world. The flamingo is an attraction to many tourists in Kenya. The Rift Valley lakes are the places to look for these birds. They normally flock in droves so spotting them will not be a problem. Also, their conspicuous pink colour contrasts the beautiful blue lakes in the Rift.
