High water levels have caused the flamingos to leave. This is not worth visiting at present.
Overall rating
1/5

High lake levels for the past 2 years have caused the flamingos to leave. Waterbuck, zebra, baboon, and other common wildlife remain, but don't go expecting to see the flamingo flock.

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.

It has become like a zoo trip, doesn't worth the trip

The entrance fees to Lake Nukuru were outrageously high, given the quality of the experience. It is a lovely lake, but do not go with the expectation of a remote wilderness experience.

3/5

Very few flamingos, apparently the water levels have increased over the last few seasons making it unattractive for the flamingo who have subsequently moved on.

Coming from 2 amazing days in the Masai Mara we experienced Lake Nakuru as quite small. Flamingos were observed on a big distance......But much wildlife!

We spent the least time here. The highlight was seeing a baby rhino nursing.
