I love this area of Kenya. The drive down to the lake from our hotel presented us with bush bucks, flamingos, crowned cranes, the black rhino, and more. Then as we drove away from the lake we came across 9 lions all taking a nap and bath time. Plenty of Maasai giraffe along the way. Just a great game viewing... More

Fabulous Safari location. Great access to the animals. Pretty, green location with hills and lots of plant life. I expected a desert Safari, but was pleasantly surprised.

Lake Nakuru in Kenya is an experience one should not miss in this part of Kenya. When you approach the lake, from distance you can see a lake with Pink Border and you keep wondering till you reach near it and WOW!!. Thousands or may be hundreds of thousands of Flemingos (short size and not the tall ones) all along... More

We had booked our accommodation at Lake Nakuru Lodge and on our drive from the main gate just before we branched to the Lodge, we met a pride of over 10 lions made up of adults and cubs. In the course of the visit, we managed to see other lions interestingly sleeping on trees. We saw lots of buffalos, black... More

Great park to spend a day driving (or bring driven) around. We spotted lions, rhinos, a leopard and loads of other animals... Our tour organiser booked us into the wild club of Kenya guesthouse, a self catering accommodation which was brilliant. Our guide sorted dinner, breakfast and lunch, and we had a good night's sleep!

We were treated to a lovely drive around the park and caught great photos of a the animals and gathering storm clouds. Lovely shot of a nervous black rhino in the rain.

We went there on July'2014 and the entire trip was awesome due to the rich bio-diversity that this park had and also due to the mass of flemingos by that time. This was called as the Paradise of Flemingos by our guide and it was proved to be true. Also, if you wanna see white rhinos, we would recommend this... More

We spent a day driving around Lake Nakuru and really had a great time. It was here that we were able to see Rhinos and Giraffes here are a bit different than most of the other giraffes you will see elsewhere. Lake Nakuru is known for the Flamingos but while we were there, they said that flooding had caused the... More
