Good birdlife and nice scenery.

Lake Nakuru is beautiful. I visited during March when there isn't as much wildlife as other times of the year, but there was still plenty of game viewing such as rhino's, lions, buffalos, baboons, pink flamingos, different types of antelopes, etc. The park is smaller than the other reserves I visited, but there were a lot more trees which gave it a more "woodsy" feel than the other reserves I visited which were more open plains.

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 http://youtu.be/BXETOPnwEhQ?t=2m21s

Lake Nakuru National Park is set in the heart of the Rift Valley. The park is relatively small at approximately 250 square kilometres, but it should never be overlooked! Its accessibility and close proximity to Nairobi makes it an easy day trip from the capital or ideal for a couple of nights on safari.

AMAAAAAAAAAZING!!!!

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.

We went out on the lake. It was beautiful, with many birds and nice to be on the water. It was more civilized where we were where even a local wedding was going on while we were there. It was a perfect contrast to the Masai Mara safari.

Semi- arid but we sighted a leopard and three rhinos apart from flamingos (not many), zebras and other animals.
