Lake Nakuru National Park

Located in Kenya's Great Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru National Park encompasses the alkaline lake of the same name. The park's claim to fame are the hundreds of thousands of greater and lesser and flamingos that migrate here. The flamingos are among the 400+ bird species that have been recorded at this Ramsar wetland site. In short, this park is a must see for passionate birdwatchers.

Lake Nakuru has been declared a black rhino sanctuary and has a fair number of these endangered animals. A small population of white rhino has been reintroduced from South Africa. Other wildlife includes lion, leopard, Rothschild’s giraffe (introduced), waterbuck, reedbuck, hippo, baboon, pelican, and cormorant. In addition, the park is home to the world's largest candelabra forest.
