Good for 1 day trip

It is a good place to visit for a day, though there are very few animals and birds in other season but its a good adventure to have for a day.

We had an excellent visit wth both bird sightings and a fantastic lion encounter. Our shots of 3 male lions enjoying a buffalo kill ere amazing. Birding near the lake was good as well.

We had a great time in Nakuru. It's perfect for a day trip, because it's a small park. The animals seem pretty acclimated to people. Within 5 minutes of entering the park, we had zebra and antelope less than 10 feet from our car! We also saw giraffe, baboons, flamingos, lots of other birds, water buck, buffalo, rhinos! and lions!... More

This fee was for four days and even though our hotel lodge was within the park and we were paying expensive to stay there and additional costs of $150 for our Safari guide per safari,... More

No Flamingoes left here but for a handful. But you get to see lions that climb trees here. A must visit place.
