So many rhinos that left me speechless!!! Didn't see flamingos from close, only when they were flying far away...but that's nature.

Main highlight :Spotting flamingos and White rhino. We could see a lot of giraffes ( around 20 of them ) moving in a group.
The nature/ scenic beauty was that of a forest, completely different from Masai Mara

Spectacular short safari in Kenya

Lake Nakuru National Park is a stunning destination, and the park I've enjoyed most in Africa. It is compact but brimming with wildlife, especially zebras, rhinos, giraffes, waterbucks, baboons, and many species of birds. It is located in the Rift Valley, on the coast of a large soda lake surrounded by hills. The park is only about a 2.5 hours drive from Nairobi, which makes it possible to visit it as a day trip from the capital. The drive over is spectacular. Soon after leaving the city one soon arrives at the escarpments leading down to the Rift Valley. We had lunch at a lodge in the park, which was fantastic. Highly recommended!

Lots Of Birdlife & Rhinos

The wildlife seen within Nakuru NP complemented that seen in other Kenyan national parks. Didn't see any big cats or elephants, but plenty of zebra, giraffe, buffalo, baboons, warthogs, & a variety of antelopes. Highlights were the rhino sightings, adults and young.
Saw more birds (25+ species) here than elsewhere including plenty of flamingos, pelicans and other water birds (the lake level was very high such that several of the roads were underwater and impassable).
Definitely worth a visit.
