Discover Lake Nakuru National Park

Surrounding a huge lake in the north-east of the country, Nakuru Reserve shelters a large number of wildlife over close to 18 square miles; from Rothschild giraffes, to leopards, lions and black rhinoceroses. However, the park's success lies in the millions of flamingoes that regularly visit the lake (unfortunately, their numbers reduce when the water level is low), making for a beautiful and colorful sight. The visits that these exceptional birds bestown upon the park give it the status of bird sanctuary, unique in East Africa.
