I visited in July 2010
I visited Lake Nakuru NP as an add on to a safari organized by a Nairobi based backpacker tourism company. They recommended that after having spent a few days in the oh-so-busy but so very spectacular Mara, this might be a quiet final day. It was perfect!
In stark contrast to the Mara, this park was a shady and tranquil oasis for flamingos, rhinos, buffalo and more. The first stop on our tour was the lake itself. At first glance, all you saw were what seemed like millions of flamingos and other birds. It was nothing short of breath taking and you wondered, after that entrance, what you'd do for the rest of the day.
A slow tour around the outside of the park revealed even more wildlife that was less present in the Mara. As we moved around the lake, rhinos came to the water for a drink and a scratch. Herds of buffalo would pass by, glancing at us as the went. We were even lucky enough to see a hyena stroll by our truck.
We would periodically move up from the lake to explore the surrounding woodlands. Here we ran into massive troops of baboons and a wide variety of ungulates. The shade here was a welcome relief from the increasingly strong sun.
After a full day in the park, we pressed on towards the Ugandan border while others returned to Nairobi. It became a fairly long day trip, but a perfect finish to our Kenyan safari.

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 ...
