Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru National at 188 square kilometers of which a third is covered by the lake and surrounded by acacia forests, rich grassland and rocky cliffs where lots of animals and birds reside, is competing with Amboseli as Kenya’s second most popular park after Masai Mara National Reserve. Lake Nakuru National Park boasts of a huge variety of vegetation with 500 different plant species including the biggest euphorbia forest in Africa. This park has beautiful scenery and plenty of wildlife. It’s main attraction, however, is the huge pink flamingo population, which has been called the biggest flamingo show on the planet.

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 Thomson’s and Grant’s 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. A herd of hippos can often be seen bathing in the lake and the park is also known for it’s large pythons.
