Being in the Lake Nakuru is a rewarding experience for the beauty of the animal species that live there
flamingos, pelicans and other birds along with rhinos and other species a very enriching and enjoyable stay for the eyes and senses

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.

We've seen some white rhinos.

Lots of wildlife, including viewing opportunities different than Maasai. Gorgeous landscaping. Electric fencing, relatively small area, and high tourism and proximity to village diminish bush vibe. Nakuru was gorgeous but felt more like a very well done zoo or Jurassic Park movie set than wild and unpredictable bush. I would visit this place again because it is so scenic and wildlife density seems much higher than Maasai, but I would prefer to do it on foot than in vehicle. Birding was excellent (it is on a lake) even though I was the only one in the group that was interested in birds (we didn't spend any time actively looking for birds).

The Kruger of Kenya. Very expensive, almost like a theme park with the amount of people and the swanky facilities. But the wildlife is great - really easy to see most animals and the birds are great because of the lake. Lots of flamingos. All the big animals here - hyena, rhino etc. Brilliant park, especially if you are on a first time safari. Easy to reach from Nairobi aswell.

The scenery is good, but civilisation is encroaching.

Lake Nakuru was spectacular for wildlife, the sight of pink flamingos was fabulous. This was where we saw a rhino and her baby

Again a very beautiful scenic location. We saw mainly Flamingo, Pelican, and Rhino. Unfortunately we had problems with the vehicle in this park, so did not get to see as much of it as we should have. I believe others saw many more species here.
