Solid option for a 1-day stop. Lodge was right in the park, and views from the rooms were absolutely spectacular.

Very cool. When for boat ride in a small jon boat. Saw hippos, and they bring a fish so you can see an eagle swoop down right in front of you to get it. Our guide spotted a baby duck stuck in a fishing net and rescued it, which my daughter really appreciated. Then they dropped us off on this island where you can walk and a very close to all kinds of zebras, antelope and giraffes. Lots of waterfowl here so, if youre a birder im sure its great. It’s hard to focus on the birds when there is so much going on with the mammals.

Lake Nakuru was incredible--- the scenic views from the Sopa Lodge overlooking the lake was awesome. The food was excellent here. The birding was first class-- we saw so many varieties of birds!! We even saw an owl and owlet which is incredible to spot in the middle of the day. Buffalo and Rhino helped round out the Big 5. We also spotted one of the most picturesque leopards lying on a fallen tree!!

big herds of Water Buffalo and White Rhinos. Only place we saw Rhinos. Easy access to see animals. Also Lake Naivasha(fresh water) which had the most birds, water fowl and fish eagels.

Lake Naguru National Park is surrounded by dense communities but keeping wildlife free without disturbing them. It is easily to see buffalo seem to be it’s territory. We saw 4 of big five here except elephants. If flamingo was there, it would be a must visit.

Nakuro is a great combination between wildlife and landscape

I really like the green bushy vibe of this park, its very different to the vibes of Amboseli and Masai Mara.

It is a pretty park with a variety of wildlife. However, there is a good deal of development around the park which is especially evident after dark, when the light pollution is visible.
