Safaris to Lake Nakuru
About Lake Nakuru
The shallow Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes and is the most popular in Kenya, renowned for its dense population of flamingos as well as hundreds of other species of birds. The Lake Nakuru National Park was set up in 1961 to encompass the lake and a small mountainous region surrounding the waters. Since then, it has been expanded and now includes a hefty chunk of the area’s grassland savannah and woodland slopes, and stretches out across an area of roughly 188 km sq. Today it's a beautiful expanse of wilderness with light acacia forest and rocky precipices.Read More
