Lake Nakuru National Park

Overview

Lake Nakuru National Park was established in 1961 and is one of the most  popular Kenya National Parks. Lake Nakuru itself sits on the edge of Nakuru Town and is internationally recognized by its brilliantly pink rim. The lake has been known to populate up to one million flamingoes who feed on the algae of the lakes rim and create a vibrant, visual spectacle for those visiting the park. Unfortunately, flamingos are no longer the main attraction as fluctuating environmental conditions have given many of them no choice but to flee to other Rift Valley lakes

Originally, Lake Nakuru National Park’s purpose was to be a bird watchers paradise by visitors during the 1950’s, but it has since become a Widely Visited Park In East Africa. The park is home to one of the largest Black Rhino populations in the country, as well as an abundance of other mammals including hippos, lions, and leopards.
