Lake Nakuru is located around a great lake and gives unique experience such as a big Rhino going to cool down by the waters edge among hundreds of pink flamingos. Or a pack of Lions going for a drink by the lake and then takes a rest. There's mountains surrounding that makes for an amazing view of the landscape.

Contrary to the other destinations in Kenya, Lake Nakuru allows you to see flamingos, hippos, and lots of monkeys and baboons. It is a great addition to a safari because of its vast wetlands and lake, which is different than much of the typical bush scene you get in other parts of Kenya. We stayed at the Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge, which was great! View my video of Lake Nakuru at

We visited Lake Nakuru to see some Rhino's, and boy! were we surprised, within 1/2 hour inside the park, we saw 7 Black Rhino's and 2 very large White Rhino's. it was a blast! 10 of us went from Edmonton Canada in 2 jeeps provided by Odyssey Safari's in NY. The best part was a young wounded Black Rhino charging our Jeep! OMG!! Stuff that movies are made of. You can view the video, go to youtube and type in 12511131 in the search bar and make sure you turn the volume up. Absolutely awesome. And the Flamingo's!! OMG! Sea of red and pink.

Nakuru - Pretty. Pink. Perfect.
Overall rating

Lake Nakuru National Park is one of my favourite parks in Kenya. It offers so much variation on so little space.
One of the remarkable things with this park is the flamingos. The shore of the lake is often completly pink with tens of thounsands flamingos. When you get up in the highlands and look down on the shore, you see how numerous they are. Incredible!

I also like the variations in the landscapes of the park. From deep forest to the big lake, and also savannah.

Perfect park. HIGHLY reccomended

This is the best place to visit to see Flamingos in the Lake and known for white rhinos and tree climbing Lions.
