A little too civilized. Lots of Flamingos and Rhinos. Some giraffes, but not as great a variety as other parks.

There must have been a million flamingos. If I had not seen it myself, I would have never believed the "pink lake" was pink because it was covered with flamingos.

The flamingos and birds are just awesome, well worth spending a day here. Rhinos, Giraffe, Monkeys, reptiles, zebra, gazelle, impala, buffalo, hyena and loads more!

It was 13 of August of the year 2005 in Kenya and we were going south coming from Samburu NP and lake Naivasha, we ended up early on the afternoon on lake Nakuru. First thing we saw from afar was that pink colour that was spread all around in the lake. Our kind and gentyle guide said “flamingos, do you see them ?” It was one amazing sight.
We stayed in one excellent Lodge and enjoyed our tour there. On that wonderful landscape of the lake except of those amazing flamingos and some other birds, we saw rhinos, zebras, buffalos, waterbuks and baboons.

It was one great time !

Lake Nakuru is one place you see a Rhino easily. I also love the trees and the flamingos on the lake. It is also a quieter park with fewer people.

Unless being an absolute Rhino-fan, avoid Lake Nakuru

In my opinion Lake Nakuru is the most over-rated safari-park in Kenya. There are better options, which are cheaper, offer more wildlife, and much nicer safari experience then Lake Nakuru. Through, these options are not as easy to get to as Nakuru, however, they are well worth the effort.
Because at least in the other parks, you will see less tourists, you will see motivated park rangers taking their job serious, you will NOT see plastic bags hanging from the acacia trees when trying to spot a leopard, you will not be bothered by the sound of the disco at night, and you will see much more animals in a much better scenery.
