Lake Nakuru National Park is one of the top tourist destinations in Africa, famed for the Flamingos,
both lesser and greater, that flock to its shores to feed on the cyanobacteria that live in its alkaline
waters. At certain times of the year, there can be between one and two million flamingos forming a big pink band around
the edge of the Lake. It is a very important breeding ground and stop over for many species of birds so much so it is a bird watchers paradise
with over 400 species of birds. In addition to its birds life, Lake Nakuru National Park is home to 50+ mammal
species, and over 500 species of flora.
The Park is home to one of the greatest concentrations of Black Rhino in the World and also has a thriving population of White Rhino. It is also a sanctuary for the rare Rothschild Giraffe and though very illusive, is one of the best places in Kenya to see Leopards.
The park has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As with all El Moran Safaris, we offer a choice in accommodation for Lake Nakuru National Park.
