Lake Nakuru National Park (188 km2, 73 mi2), created in 1961 around Lake Nakuru, near Nakuru Town. It is best known for its thousands, sometimes millions of flamingos nesting along the shores. The surface of the shallow lake is often hardly recognizable due to the continually shifting mass of pink. The number of flamingos on the lake varies with water and food conditions and the best vantage point is from Baboon Cliff. Also of interest is an area of 188 km (116 mi) around the lake fenced off as a sanctuary to protect giraffes, black rhinos and white rhinos.
The park has recently been enlarged partly to provide the sanctuary for the black rhino. This undertaking has necessitated a fence - to keep out poachers rather than to restrict the movement of wildlife. The park marches for 12.1 km on the south eastern boundary with the Soysambu conservancy which represents a possible future expansion of habitat for the rhinos and the only remaining wildlife corridor to Lake Naivasha.
The Lake Nakuru Lodge is situated in a wonderland which lies in the heart of one of the Kenya’s parks (Ramsar site), only two hours leisurely drive on first class roads-from Nairobi, through some of the most exciting scenery to be seen anywhere in Africa. The 165 km Nairobi-Nakuru road gives the visitors an unrivalled view of the majestic Great Rift Valley, winding through a series of lakes and forested uplands and all the way to the bustling market town of Nakuru. The views are equally impressive for the visitors who use a charter aircraft for the 25 minutes flight to the Lake Nakuru National Park airstrip situated at the southern side of the park at the Rhino Sanctuary headquarters-Naishi.
