Attractions at the Lake Nakuru National Park

Flamingoes and Birdlife: Both lesser and the greater flamingo occur abundantly as non-breeding visitors. More than 450 species of birds has been recorded in the park. White pelicans can observed in large number. Interesting bird species are the Cape Wigeon duck, the tiff-tailed Maccoa duck, numerous plovers, migrant birds visiting the lake, birds of prey (and the rare majestic black Verreaux's eagle) living on the cliffs and many forest species living in the acacia and euphorbia woodlands.

Wildlife in Lake Nakuru: The number of animals to be encountered in Lake Nakuru National Park is not inconsiderable as the park is small and game density and variety are high. Indigenous mammals seen in the park include the hippopotamus (in the north-eastern corner), spotted hyena, lion (restocked), leopard, rock hyrax, bat-eared fox, wildcat, golden cat, Bohor reedbuck, Defassa waterbuck (in high grasses bordering the shore) and Colobus monkey, Rotschild's giraffe, black and white rhinoceros

The Baboon cliff: The Baboon cliff and its lookout point offer finest view across the lake and over the shimmering fringe of pink around the lake's white shores. There is a nature trail of 100 meters long which winds its way along the cliff. Picnic tables and lavatories are available. The Baboon cliff is covered by euphorbia, acacia and olive trees.

Out of Africa Hills and Lion Hill: In the southern part of the the park, The Out of Africa hills have spectacular views along the edge of the towering black Baboon cliff and it is the greatest sundowner spot of the park,  The Lion Hill is located at the eastern part of the park and the hill is fully covered by strange cactus-like trees, the Euphorbia candelabrum (known also as candle tree), forming the biggest euphorbia forest in Africa and a unique pre-historic forest.

Makalia Falls: The Makalia falls mark the southern border of the park. The torrents of the Makalia river plunge in a small pool forming the Makalia falls.

Nakuru means "Dust or Dusty Place" in Masai language. Lake Nakuru National Park, close to Nakuru town, was established in 1961 to protect its shallow soda lake in the heart of the Kenyan Rift Valley.

Lake Nakuru is the second most visited park in Kenya after the Masai Mara, this small park is a favorite destination for ornithologists as the lake is home to flamingoes, water birds (pelicans) and a variety of terrestrial birds living in the forested areas. The lake has been dubbed "the greatest bird spectacle on Earth". It started off small, only encompassing the famous lake and the surrounding mountainous vicinity. Now it has been extended to include a large part of the savannahs.
 

Lake Nakuru national park is surrounded by fascinating volcanic sceneries: North by the Menengai crater, North-East by the Bahati hills, East by the Lion hill, South by the Eburu crater and West by the Mau escarpment.

Lake Nakuru National Park lies about 160 kilometers north of Nairobi. It can therefore be visited in a day tour from the capital or more likely as part of a circuit taking in the Masai Mara, Mount Kenya and to Samburu. The lake is world famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth - myriads of fuschia pink flamingoes whose numbers are legion, often more than a million maybe two.

Flamingo and the other birds that inhabit the lake  feed on the abundant algae, which thrives in the warm waters. Scientists reckon that the flamingo population at Nakuru consumes about 250,000 kilos of algae per hectare of surface area per year.


The Menengai Crater located just outside Lake Nakuru National Park is the Largest Volcanic Caldera in Kenya

Leopard can be seen easily in Lake Nakuru than in other Kenya Parks

Lake Nakuru National Park is also a sanctuary to the endangered black and white rhinos and the Rothschild giraffe.

Near Nakuru town, you can also visit the Hyrax Valley and the Menengai crater, the largest volcanic calderas of Kenya.
