Lake Nakuru National Park is home to lion, rhinoceros, leopard, hippo and many more species. It is not only an ideal park for game drives but has hiking trails and picnic spots with beautiful views and plenty of opportunities for watching the park’s 400+ bird species.

As the name suggests, the park is also home to Lake Nakuru and its vibrant flock of flamingo. The birds and their beautiful pink feathers attract tourists from all over the world.
