Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru (located within the Lake Nakuru National Park) is a shallow strongly alkaline lake set in a picturesque landscape of surrounding woodland and grassland. The landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with a Euphorbia forest.

Lake Nakuru National Park is home to up to 1.5 million flamingos plus 450 other species of species of birds. Thompsonís and Grants gazelle, the rare long-eared leaf-nosed bat, colobus monkey, rock hyrax, hippo, leopard, lion, rhino, waterbuck, impala, gazelle, stripped hyena, bat-eared fox, wild cat, reedbuck and golden cat.

Lake Nakuru National competes with Amboseli as Kenyaís second most popular park after Masai Mara National Reserve.

The flamingo population is terrific to watch, apart from the flamingos, the lake is home to over 400 bird species, which makes Lake Nakuru a bird watchers paradise.

Apart from this, the Lake Nakuru is waterbuck heaven. Because of the absence of natural enemies, the waterbuck population numbers in their thousands. A lot of buffaloes and warthogs can also be seen in the park. Leopards, zebras, dik-diks, ostriches and jackals can be seen, as well as elands and Thomsonís and Grantís gazelles in the southern part of the park. The population of 25 white rhinos, brought in from elsewhere, is one of the biggest in Kenya.
