Nakuru Safari

The ultimate guide to your next Nakuru Safari

Get to Know Nakuru

This small area is your chance to see rhino and big cats as well as pelicans and pink-hued masses of flamingos

Lake Nakuru is a Rift Valley soda lake that’s high in mineral and algae content. It’s a must if you’re interested in seeing feeding flocks of the two species of flamingo, and huge great white and pink-backed pelicans. If you’re not going on safari to Laikipia’s Lewa and Ol Pejeta conservancies, then Lake Nakuru is your chance to see rhino, both black and white. It’s also a good place to see Rothchild’s giraffe, and there are big cats in the form of lion, leopard and cheetah. Any nature or bird lover would enjoy Lake Nakuru even though it’s a relatively small fenced area just outside Nakuru town. The lake was used to create a sanctuary for rhino and other wildlife during the height of the poaching years.

FAQs about Lake Nakuru National Park

  • The basins of the beautiful lakes Bogoria and Nakuru, which are located on the Eastern Kenyan branch of the Great Rift Valley, were produced by tectonic and volcanic activity.
  • Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley lakes at an elevation of 1,754 m above sea level.
  • The city of Nakuru is located in Kenya's Nakuru County. It is located 1850 meters above sea level in Kenya's highlands, giving it a climate similar to, but slightly colder than, Nairobi.
  • June to October and January to February. The wildebeest migration reaches the Masai Mara in July and remains until October - when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania. However, wildlife is easier to spot since the animals gather around the water source as well as on the rivers. Newborn animals can also be seen.
