Nairobia National Park or Lake Nakuru for 1 day tour

We will have one whole day to tour a game reserve. Nairobi National Park is very close, and Lake Nakuru is about a 2 hr. drive. We would hire a guide with transport to do either tour. Can anyone tell me which park may be better for seeing the large animals up close. Thanks Brian.

Nairobi national park would be my choice for a day trip. Plenty of game and not many tourists

I'd plump for Nairobi National Park for a 1 day visit. If you go to Nakuru, you'll spend most of the day driving there and back - plus the lake is seriously flooded, putting many of the roads out of commission and the large flocks of flamingos have gone.
