Known all over the world for its flamingos, it’s alkaline and is recognized as being one of the Natural Wonders of the World. Lake Nakuru is now a rhino sanctuary, harboring a population of over 40 black and over 60 white rhinos, but the flamingos, of course, have always been the main attraction. At times, there may be almost 2 million flamingos in residence, forming a stunningly beautiful deep-pink band around the edge of the lakeshore.

You will arrive in time for lunch and then have an afternoon game drive. See rhinos, giraffes, zebras, baboons, and the big cats. The park itself is very scenic with the lake contrasting the acacia woodland areas where troops of baboons can be seen. Dinner and overnight will be at the lodge.
