Detailed Itinerary

Lake Nakuru National Park is dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation. Twenty seven percent (27%) of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters. The Park was declared a Rhino Sanctuary in 1983. The Rhino stocking programme which ensued received white rhinos from South Africa. Currently the sanctuary has approximately 45 black and 31 white rhinoceros.

The Park lies in the volcanic – strewn Great Rift Valley, one of the chain of 8 lakes, which stretch the length of Kenya, Tanzania to Ethiopia. 160 kilometers from Nairobi, you will drive through the farmlands of the Kikuyu Community and drop down the escarpment into the dramatic floor of the Rift Valley.The lake is world famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth – myriads of fuchsia Pink flamingoes whose numbers are legion, often more than a million maybe two.

There are also a number of Rothschild’s giraffe. Among the predators are lions and leopards, the later being seen much more frequently in recent times. The Park also has large sized python snakes that inhabit the dense woodlands, and can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees. Lunch will be served at a Lodge in the Park and thereafter another game drive en-route to Nairobi arriving before dusk.
The lake water is highly saline but supports a habitat rich in biodiversity including a variety of aquatic flora and fauna. The lake also is inhabited by water mammals mainly hippopotamus and claw less otters while the terrestrial part of the park supports a large number of other African plain mammals. The Park is also a sanctuary of the Rothschild’s Giraffe.

The bird life here is world renown and over 400 bird’s species exist here, White Pelicans, Plovers, Egrets and Marabou Stork. It is also one of the very few places in Africa to see the White Rhino and rare Rothschild Giraffe.
