KENYA’S RIFT VALLEY AND LAKES

Kenya’s Rift valley lakes are an internationally recognized biodiversity hotspot, featuring spectacular wildlife.

LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK

Lake Nakuru is a shallow, alkaline lake, where flamingos flock to. This lake offers one of the world's most spectacular wildlife sights - that of brilliant pink flamingos as far as the eye can see. When conditions are right, between one and two million lesser and greater flamingos feed around the shores of the shallow soda lake, together with tens of thousands of other birds. What is certain is that any visitor to Lake Nakuru is likely to encounter flocks large enough to induce absolute awe. Over four hundred species of birds have been sighted at the park and it goes without saying that this is a bird watchers paradise.

Flamingoes

Lake Nakuru was declared a national park in 1961 and it now covers an area of some 200 km². It serves as a sanctuary for the endangered black rhino as well as being home to various other large game species, including leopard warthog, waterbuck and large numbers of impala. Other slightly shyer residents include buffalo, Rothschild giraffe, eland, lion, leopard and black rhino.
