Lake Nakuru National Park Safaris

Best Lake Nakuru Safaris from Nairobi

Lake Nakuru safaris are excellent. Lake Nakuru National Park was Declared a national park in 1961, Lake Nakuru covers an area of some 180 km² and its diverse habitats are home to warthog, baboon, waterbuck, and large numbers of impala. Slightly shyer residents include buffalo, Rothschild’s giraffe, eland, the occasional leopard, and both black and white rhinos. A herd of hippos has their territory in the northern part of the lake.

But that’s only the beginning of what this special park has to offer because the wildlife viewing here is easy and accessible. Lake Nakuru is known for hosting some endangered but beautiful species.  You’re sure to see rare Rothschild’s Giraffe along with the white rhinos, especially along the lakeshore. Another aspect of the active wildlife viewing here is observing the park’s zebra, hippo, olive baboon, vervet and colobus monkeys, waterbuck, and hyena. 

Other big safari wildlife to be on the lookout for include lion, leopard, and buffalo. The park is fenced to protect the rhino and giraffe, so it can’t support elephants and cheetahs – the only large mammal you won’t find here.
