Lake Nakuru just like any other rift lake was formed as a result of depression. The land faulting and down warping formed depression. This bowl like depression was later filled with water forming a lake. This lake has no out let therefore water is mainly lost through evaporation and percolation. Lake Nakuru is fed by three main rivers namely; river Njoro.river makalia and river nderit.However these rivers are now seasonL.The only permanent feeders are the baharini springs on the north of the lake. They are believed to originate from the Ndunduri and Menengai Hills. They are basically a collection of undergrounds water that sips out at this part of the lake.
