Lake Nakuru National Park, situated in central Kenya’s Rift Valley, is renowned for its large, shallow alkaline lake and its spectacular birdlife. The park covers an area of 188 square kilometers, with the lake itself making up about a third of the park’s area. Lake Nakuru is famous for its flocks of flamingos, which can number in the millions and create a stunning pink spectacle along the shoreline. The park also serves as a sanctuary for both black and white rhinos, making it a critical area for rhino conservation in Kenya.

In addition to flamingos, the park is home to a wide variety of other bird species, including pelicans, cormorants, and the African fish eagle. The surrounding savannah and woodland provide habitat for diverse wildlife such as lions, leopards, buffaloes, giraffes, and zebras. The park also features unique geological formations like the Makalia Falls and the dramatic cliffs and escarpments that provide panoramic views of the lake and its environs. Visitors can enjoy game drives, bird watching, and guided walks, making Lake Nakuru National Park a must-visit destination for nature enthusiasts.
