Lake Nakuru is loved for its amazing scenery and birdlife. Located in Central Kenya i.e. the district of Rift Valley, the soda lake was once a bird sanctuary only. It makes for a memorable safari experience due to its beautiful grasslands, forest, four of the big five and of course the lake itself.
Lake Nakuru National Park, approximately 188 square kilometers, is a paradise of birds (over 300 species both native and seasonal) which makes it a popular attraction. Some of the birds include Flamingos, European Roller, Rupell’s Vulture, Imperial Eagle, Great White Pelican amongst many notable ones.
It also has some rare wildlife species including the Rothschild’s Giraffe. The Park also has a number of zebras, hippos, colobus monkeys (in the forest), waterbucks, hyenas, lions (occasionally sighted) and buffalos.
Best Time To Visit: June-March as April-May are known to have the heaviest rainfalls which affect game viewing.
