A more lush area, animals are harder to see at times but very beautiful.

Heavy rains made lake level to high to access flamingo sites but still plenty wildlife to see. Large Buffalo herds.

Beautiful park, lots of birds although fewer game. The Flamingo Hills camp we stayed in was luxurious and perfect for encountering rare birds on the verandah of your tent.

It is a pity that the Flamingos are not present anymore

Very beautiful park I liked more than Masai Mara, at sunrise the landscape is stunning! Wildlife here is not as rich as Masai Mara but still worth a one day visit

The driver did not seem to be very keen to show us the best or may be there is no "best" there. I am not sure which one is the reason for my disappointment for having chosen this one as part of my vacation package.

Lake Nakuru is more jungle then anything else. You can see rhinos, but less lions etc.

Nice park, more beautiful then expected!
Overall rating
4/5

I'm not a fan of fenced in parks, they just feel like really nice zoos to me, but this one is very beautiful and does have lots of animals. I read online about the lack of flamingos, but I saw many of them on my visit, not the thousands you see in the icon photos, but enough to feel like the park had lots of them, so I wasn't disappointed. I'm not planning on going back anytime soon, the fence and town around the park killed this one for me, but if you can get past that, the park is stunningly beautiful and the wildlife viewing is top notch!

A scenic place for great birding
Overall rating
5/5

On a two-day trip to Lake Nakuru during the wet season in June, I didn't really expect much wildlife activity. But it was still worth a try because we were told that the place is quite scenic, a large tucked in a valley, surrounded by hills. That's not quite the stereotypical image of Kenyan landscape.
It rained in the afternoon when we reached our camp and the night was fairly cold. But the next morning was all clear skies and sunny, pleasant weather.
The birding was great and we even saw some flamingoes. Wildlife sightings were very satisfying too, we saw a family of the rare black rhino, giraffes, a couple of lion sightings and jackals. The rock hyrax was an unexpected delight.
The Flamingo Hill Camp is a comfortable place to stay. Maybe because it was the off-season, we saw no other safari vehicle and our time there felt quite exclusive.The lake looks spectacular from the Baboon Hill viewing spot. I would visit the place over and over!
