Wildlife Safari

One of Nakuru's greatest attractions is its birds, and this is a common stop for specialist Birding safaris. Apart from the obvious Greater and Lesser Flamingo, species of interest recorded here include many Great White Pelican and Black necked and Little Grebe, as well as rare Martial Eagle, Lesser Kestrel and Madagascar Squacco Heron.Lake Nakuru National Park is one of the most popular in Kenya.

It is world famous for its flamingos. Both Lesser and Greater are found here. These birds move between the soda lakes throughout the Rift Valley, but the waters of Nakuru often play host to huge flocks that cover the lake edge in swathes of living pink. This dramatic spectacle makes a perfect backdrop for the profusion of game on the Lake’s shore.

This is a sanctuary for Rhino, and there are both Black and introduced White Rhino here. Nakuru means ‘place of the waterbuck’ and is well named, there are very large herds all around the Lake. There’s also Buffalo, Zebra, rare Rothschild Giraffe and other plains game. Lion are often seen, as are leopards, resting in trees under the Baboon Cliffs.

These cliffs provide excellent vantage points and views over the Lake.

Game drives in the Park can be booked locally through local lodges, hotels and travel agents.
