African Fish Eagles of Lake Naivasha

The African Fish Eagle is well known for its hunting abilities and can be seen eating fish and even small crocodiles. Lake Naivasha (1900m) is itself too cold for crocodiles. Touring the lake on a small boat, it is possible to get your boatman to call for these majestic birds and bait them out with a small fish (Tilapia). The Fish Eagles typically pair up and spend most of the day in their nests high in the Acacia Trees surrounding the lakes.
