The inlet to lake Magadi

On this tranquil Sunday, we stopped around 50 kilometres from Magadi to explore the rift feeding into lake Magadi. A Masai that had a small homestead near the escarpment’s edge, agreed to take us down into the Magadi inlet together with his son. Once we reached the bottom of the rift, we realised how much hotter it was in the base of the feature, and you can see the heat waves distorting this photograph of the Masai. It must have been around 40 degrees Celcius.
