Positioned in Central Kenya, about 90 miles northwest of Nairobi, Lake Nakuru National Park occupies approximately 188 square kilometres of the Nakuru district of the Rift Valley Province. The landscape consists of Lake Nakuru which, depending on the season can occupy up to 40 square kilometres, surrounded by wooded and bushy grasslands. Despite its relatively small size, this national park hosts 400 species of birds, 50+ mammal species, and over 500 species of flora. You are guaranteed to see White rhino, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and waterbuck, and you may well encounter the rare Black rhino, lion, hippo, python and hyena.
Nakuru National Park was a bird sanctuary prior to being annexed as a national park in 1968. Unsurprisingly it is a haven for birdwatchers, playing an important role on the African-Eurasian Migratory Flyway. There are a variety of water birds including Yellow-billed pelicans, Marabou storks, Hammerkops and Fish Eagles. One of the true highlights is making the trip to Baboon Cliff to get a fantastic view across the lake, where you can see the famous sight of the pink flamingoes flocking at the edges of the water.
