Located in the Great Rift Valley surrounded by yellow acacia woodlands and bushy shrublands, the Lake Nakuru National Park was created to protect the Lake and its large flocks of Lesser Flamingo, which are drawn to the algae that flourish in the saline waters of this soda lake. The national park is inhabited by over 50 mammal species including hippo, black and white rhino, Rothschild giraffe, buffalo and eland. Known as a bird watcher's paradise, the park is home to over 450 bird species. Visitors can look forward to hiking through the scenic landscape, picnicking next to this magnificent lake, and spotting an array of wildlife on a game drive. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the beautiful Makalia Waterfall.
The Park was created in 1968 to protect the huge flocks of the lesser flamingo that breed and nest at the edge of Lake Nakuru, giving it the characteristic pink rim. Located at an altitude of 4,000-5,767 feet above sea level, the park covers 188 square kilometres of land, of great ecological diversity - from lake waters, woodlands and bush grasslands - to rocky ridges. It is home to not just the lesser flamingo, but also to over 400 species of birds, and one of the few places that one would be able to encounter the endangered white rhino. Other wildlife at the park includes lions, leopards, zebras, gazelles, eland, giraffe and the hyrax.
