Experience Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya

Lake Nakuru National Park is an all-year-round destination that offers sanctuary to huge numbers of native African animals such as the Endangered Black Rhino & bird viewing experience. The park is also home to Waterbucks, Warthogs, Impalas, Rothschild Giraffes, Eland as well as White Rhinos and Lions which can also be experienced at this park.

This park is situated in the Great Rift Valley, about 156 km from Nairobi City and it covers an area of 180 km sq with the surface of the Lake occupying about a third of the Park. What used to make this park so special was its dense bloom of the blue-green Cyanophyte Spirulina Platensis which is a source food for flamingos but due to increase precipitation level at the park over the recent years, there has been a reduction in the alkalinity level of the lake thus reducing the algae content which is the source food for the flamingos

As a result, majority of resident flamingos of Lake Nakuru have migrated to other  lakes such as the neighboring Lake Bogoria in kenya and Natron in Tanzania. To date, visitors can only experience flamingos at Lake Nakuru during the dry month of January & March but still its not guaranteed experience.
