With a blazing sea of Greater and Lesser pink flamingos, Lake Nakuru National Park lies on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland. Flanked by rocky escarpments tower over yellow acacia forest, waterfalls, wooded hills, and euphorbia trees, this park is full of 550 different plant species.
In 1960, Lake Nakuru was the first gazetted as a bird sanctuary and got the status of National park in 1968. The surface of the lake supports the dense bloom of the blue-green Cyanophyte Spirulina platensis from which it derives its color and is a food source for flamingos.
Lake Nakuru National Park has Kenya’s largest populations of rhinos. On Kenya Safari Tours, the southern end of the lake is the best place to see wildlife whereas, the forest area below Flamingo Hill is the best place to spot a lion.
Lake Nakuru National Park is the home of lions, leopards, waterbuck, hippos, endangered Rothschild’s giraffes, black and white rhinos. With more than 450 bird species including a variety of terrestrial birds and 56 mammal species, Lake Nakuru National Park looks gorgeous all year around and famous for a birding safari in Kenya Safari Tours.
The most fascinating view of the shore of the lake with green grassland from Lion hill and Baboon cliff is really amazing. Game drives or walking experience alongside surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges are really worthy of visiting this park.
