Lake Nakuru National Park Travel Guide: 216 reviews and 668 photos

Lake Nakuru, a soda lake, is famous because of millions of flamingos. In 2004 we visited the Lake Nakuru National Park and found out, that the park has much more to offer. Of course we saw the many flamingos and other birdlife along the shores of the lake, but we saw also giraffes, zebras, rhinos, buffalos, baboons, impalas and waterbucks.

To save the rhino population in Kenya the Lake Nakuru National Park became the first rhino sanctuary.

I was surprised to see so many buffalos in the park.

    East Africa to see the Serengetti / Rift Valley is a drumbeat call for me ;-))) Rhinos down under in the South did not have the long Horns, if i remember correctly?

    Wonderful pages. Weare still trying to figure out where to head for our first safari. How did you get to the camp? Did you rent a car?

    As a lover of animals and a birdwatcher in particular, Lake Nakuru is one of those places you dream about going to.

    Hi, some how this place looks different then it did in 2001. Wish the Rhinos were a bit more WILD though. We had 2 Lionesses come stay in our camp-site by the fire! That was on my last nt there. VERY COOL!! cheers, david
