africa magical scenery tours and safaris lake nakuru

Lake Nakuru is a UNESCO World Heritage Site found in Kenya. Famously known for the flocks of flamingos at its shoreline. The flamingos are not only restricted at Lake Nakuru as they have also been seen at Lake Bogoria in recent years but their presence depends largely on the alkaline of the lakes.

This famous lake is located a couple of  3 hours drive from Nairobi, a distance of about 161.2km drive it is often used as an important stop-off point on driving safaris on the way to the Masai Mara or as an interlude between the Laikipia/Mount Meru/Samburu area and the Mara - it is a very long drive without a brief stop here. A night's worth of stay is enough to recharge as well as explore this marvelous lake region. Be on the watch for black and white rhino, tree-climbing lions, leopards, and Rothschild's giraffe.

The accommodations here are in a variety. From budget hotels to the most luxurious properties. Budget hotels like City Max hotel, Golden palace hotel, midrange hotels like Buraha Benoni, Nakuru Sopa, luxurious such as Nakuru lodge, Sarova Hill game lodge.There are only a handful of lodges inside the park, with several others located in  nearby  Nakuru town.

Lake Nakuru is one of the alkaline lakes found in the Great Rift Valley and has been a National Park since the pre-independence period. It is actually not that large in size, millions of flamingoes have been seen on the Lake, feeding on the algae that do well in its warm waters. These great flocks wade through the shallow waters, transforming the entire lake into a shimmering shade of pink.

Lake Nakuru is a  great destination to visit in  search for two of the big 5 you often not found in most parks. Home to the largest population of rhinos in the country, who graze in the early morning on the sweet vegetation on the lake's edge. Both Black and White Rhino are present openly grazing, it makes spotting them much easier. It is also a good place for trying to see much decorated  leopard, undoubtedly the most difficult of the big 5 to spot. Adding to the list of rare animals  in the park is the Rothschild giraffes, an endangered species introduced in the in the post colonial era to help protect its future.There are 2 types of resident flamingos, pelicans and cormorants on the lake as well as 400 other species of birds.
