Kenya Things to Do: 393 reviews and 566 photos


This is a great and inexpensive little park only a couple of hours from Nairobi...it's inbetween Nairobi and Eldoret. This park is somewhat small...but the concentration of animals is great. This is a great place to see rhinocerous...I've been several times and saw many rhinocerous everytime. There are not many lions in this park...but I have seen them as well as leopards. There are a couple lodges to stay in...they are very nice. I've also camped in the park and heard the roar of lions at night. I would say the best place to say is a small cottage located within the park. It is a cheap place to stay although you'll need to bring your own food because it has it's own kitchen. This is a pretty big cottage and I stayed there with several friends. At night there was a hippo right outside the window...we watched while we ate. Within the park is Lake Nakuru which is covered with flamingos and is quite a sight. Nakuru is a very enjoyable park...I highly recommend.
