This is one of the famous Kenya safari that gives you an opportunity to explore the wild side of Kenya’s big five.
Lake Nakuru National Park
Lake Nakuru National Park, situated in the Rift Valley Region. Arrive in Nakuru and head straight for an afternoon game drive in the park. The Park is renowned worldwide for its hundreds of thousands of pink flamingos that colour its shows in pink. In late 80’s the park also became Kenya’s first rhino sanctuary and is today home to both the White and Black Rhinos. Lions, leopards, hippos, giraffes, waterbucks are equally at home in this unique park.
During the boat ride the boat captain will explain in details the various animals and birds in the lake. Beautiful photos will also be possible. Among the resident birds are fish eagles, ospreys, lily-trotters, black crakes and a variety of herons. Hippos also live in the lake. This is a freshwater lake, fringed by thick papyrus almost 13 km’s across, but its waters are shallow with an average depth of five meters. The waters of the lake draw a great range of game to these shores. Giraffes wander among the acacia, Hippos wallow in the swamps and Colobus monkeys call from the treetops while the Lakes large hippo populations sleep the day out in the shallows.
