An easy to reach park to see big game. Doesn't have the bush vibe of Masai Mara but a great place to check your Big Five boxes.

Black & White Rhino, lions if you're lucky, leopard definately, - Lesser & Greater Pink Flamingo and myriads of other birds ranging from Pelicans to Weaver Birds. Good choice of lodge accomodation. As the main route circumvents the lake, you can't really get lost.

The park is very beautiful and you may leave the truck at some places. The aniamls are in great numbers and we even saw White Rhino's!

Soda lakes are interesting. Flamingoes and Pelicans were amazing. Drove from Nairobi as a day trip once. Stayed once at just ok hotel which name I can't remember. Walking safari felt as though we were walking in a zoo without fences.

The wildlife viewing was great! However, the large number of tourists that visit Lake Nakuru has attracted other primates who might want to steal your lunch. Be very careful with your belongings!

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.

Lake Nakuru was much better than I had expected to be. I knew it was justly famous for it's birdlife but hadn't realised there were so many other animals there. I have given only 2 stars for 'Bush vibe' because it did feel a little like we were in a commercial safari park like the ones in the UK.
