On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. Lake Nakuru National Park is a shallow alkaline lake that is about 60 square kilometers in size.

The landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs. Stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides are covered by a Euphorbia forest on the eastern perimeter.

Lake Nakuru is bordered by Menengai crater to the north ,the Bahati hills to the north east. Lion hill ranges, Eburu crater and the Mau escarpment are clearly seen from this park. Three major rivers, the Njoro, Makalia and Enderit drain into the lake.

In the recent past, the alkaline waters of the lake was the home to flocks of flamingo but today the water level has risen, making the food source of the lake less attractive. None the less you will still find limited numbers of flamingo and pelican roaming around the lake shores. This exotic park boasts of a rich concentration of wildlife including black and white colobus monkeys and is also a Rhino sanctuary. Look for temperamental black rhinos browsing in the bushes, and larger white rhinos cropping grass along the lakeside.

Nakuru means “Dust or Dusty Place” in Maasai language.
