Lake Magadi has a number of wild animals to see: most common wildlife includes the giraffe, wildebeest, zebras, antelopes and gerenuk. Other animals can also be seen at specific times of the early morning and late evening around the lake and in the conservancy – this includes hyenas, lions, buffalos and elephants. This is because, the temperatures during the day are so high and some of these animals go in hiding to escape the heat. You need to plan in advance with tour guides to be able to see them. Night game drive is also possible to see the nocturnal animals.
