Lake Nakuru, Lake Nakuru National Park

A national park flourishing with life, Lake Nakuru provides a haven for birds and bird-lovers from across the globe. Discover the diverse beauty scattered around on the Rift Valley's great soda lake, with waterfalls, caves, and forest all providing pockets of varying wildlife, including tree-climbing lions, Rothschild giraffes, and endangered black rhinos. Despite rising water levels leading to a depleting flamingo population, the park still provides ample bird-watching, thanks to its position on the African-Eurasian migratory flyway. Pack a picnic and enter through one of the park's three gates, touring each of the safari viewpoints for some spectacular photographs. You can plan Lake Nakuru National Park trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
