I visited in March 2013
My main aim at the back of my mind for this particular trip was to have a view of the ever-talked about pink masses of birds...flocked in their thousands! I did not even mind about inquiring of their presence as I knew L. Nakuru is their ancestral home. The park is home to other species of animals and birds, but this time around, I was interested in seeing the pink bird.
The lake is not very far from Nakuru town. We headed to the baboon cliff and from that point I could not view anything pink! I thought we had come to the wrong place.
The warden whom I talked to then let the cat out of the bag!
"The flamingos have migrated up north to L.Bogoria in thousands. The past year the lake flooded converting it from a soda lake to a freshwater lake. The flamingo food can not survive in fresh water conditions. The birds cannot starve, they've got to move and find some food!"
Shocking to me, but well-explained. We had to have a game drive instead, which was not disappointing either. A good population of rhinos including the white rhino, African buffaloes, cheetahs, other types of birds and so many baboons were among the animals on sight in the park.
With my day's mission unfulfilled, I had to plan another which I would follow the birds up north, at least a four hour drive from Nakuru.

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 ...

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.

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!
