A Birdwatcher’s

Paradise

Embark on an unforgettable journey to Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya’s celebrated sanctuary nestled in the heart of the Rift Valley. Spanning an impressive 188 square kilometres, this park offers unmatched ecological diversity, from its shimmering lake and lush woodlands to sweeping grasslands and rugged rocky outcrops.

Lake Nakuru National Park is one of the smallest but best game parks in Kenya. It boasts a rich concentration of wildlife, including Grant’s gazelle, colobus monkey, hippo, leopard, impala, striped hyena, bat-eared fox, buffalo, zebra, rock hyrax, waterbuck, and the rare Rothschild giraffe—all of which may be spotted on daily game drives. The park is also an important sanctuary for the endangered black and white rhino and contains Kenya’s largest population of rhinos.

The most dominant feature of the national park is Lake Nakuru, the most renowned of Kenya’s Rift Valley lakes. Extremely variable in size, changing from 5 to 30 square kilometres in area, Lake Nakuru is a shallow alkaline lake that hosts the greatest birdlife spectacle in the world. When conditions are right, the lake’s abundance of algae attracts nearly two million lesser and greater flamingos, creating a pulsing pink swathe of life around its shores. Apart from the flamingos, half a million pelicans and over 400 other bird species also fringe the shores of this soda lake. The best vantage point to view this shifting mass of bright pink is from Baboon Cliff, set on one of the highest points on the hills surrounding Lake Nakuru. A safari to Lake Nakuru is highly recommended for bird lovers.

Located 157 kilometres from Nairobi, a Nakuru safari is an excellent add-on to other popular Kenya destinations such as the Masai Mara and Amboseli National Park. Lake Nakuru National Park offers an incredible array of wildlife and some of the most spectacular natural phenomena, making it a must-visit destination for nature enthusiasts.na
