What a Place!!!!

Written on: September 02, 2013   |   I visited in April 2013 When it comes to having fun, Kenyans know that Nakuru is the real deal. Lake Nakuru National Park is one of the crown jewels of the country that attracts Kenyans and people from all over the world. The park is situated 140 km from Nairobi (capital city of Kenya). The road to the park is well tarmacked. As a result, it has become a habit of many Kenyans to take a weekend drive to the site. I first drove to the park two years ago, accompanied by a couple of friends. My experience was simply AMAZING. I have gone there four more times since. The park is surrounded by the beautiful Lake Nakuru which is renowned worldwide for its flamingos. Other animals which you will be able to see are: Rhinos, Waterbuck, Zebras, Lions and Warthogs among others.
If you are new to the park, the management offers friendly and qualified tour guides. The park also offers facilities for camping.

It was easy to spot wild animals unlike in most other parks. My most incredible sights were of pink flamingos dotting the shows of Lake Nakuru. The parks hosts four of the Big Five (except for the Elephant). The baboons around the gate are were very welcoming and absolutely comical. It was great to spot warthogs busy going about their daily business. Lions were in ... read more

Lake Nakuru lodge was decent in standard. The views were beyond words - amazing and having a bush dinner provided us with some great photos. The game drives were well planned and we were very fortunate to see a lot of animals, we even got to see the white rhino. The guide told us a lot of information on various animals and he had answers to all our questions and he... read more

Lake Nakuru is an ornithologist’s paradise with over 400 recorded species of birds. Around the lake one can find flamingos, a wide range of waders including avocet, while large rafts of pelicans can also be seen sweeping the water in unison.

There are well marked driving tracks around the lake and all over the park where you can enjoy a self-driven safari in you... read more

Lake Nakuru is the only national park in Kenya where you can be 100% sure that you will see both white and black rhinos and the endangered Rothchild giraffe. I have been there over 50 times and I have witnessed this. read more

The Lake shore is flooding and it has caused the staff to make new roads. The old on shore roads are gone now.
Nakuru is a beautiful place, full of baboons (which we had a ball with), Vervet monkeys, some rhinos (but poaching is an issue), and a few lions.
Got some super images there. And my only leopard shot of the trip! read more
