Lake Nakuru National Park is the most visited Great Rift Valley lakes, and can be experienced on a long day safari or an overnight safari stopover. Lake Nakuru is world famous as the feeding grounds of both lesser and greater flamingos which can be distinguished by size and color.

The lesser flamingo has a deep carmine red bill; the greater has a pink one with a black tip. The lesser also has a deeper pink plumage. Both species are present at the lake. Lake Nakuru was crowned a national park in the sixties. It was estimated then that there were at times more than a million flamingos. Ornithologists describe it as "the most fabulous bird spectacle in the world."


Besides that, more than 400 species of birds can be seen in the park. Hippos, reedbuck, waterbuck, black rhino, giraffe, lion, leopard, bushbuck are present too at Lake Nakuru. Between the lake and the cliffs in the west, large pythons inhabit the dense woodland, and can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees. Accommodation for your safari in Africa at Lake Nakuru is available at the Flamingo Hill Camp, Sarova Lion Hill Lodge and Lake Nakuru Lodge which are right inside the park.
