We enjoyed great views of animals in this park. The animals are in plenty. Nothing I had seen before. Loved every moment of it. A great guide named Charles was very knowledgeable and knew where the animals were.

Enjoyed seeing so many animals, including white rhinos and so many flamingos! So neat to see the city in the background, but be surrounded by so much wildlife: baby baboons, cape buffalo, impala, zebras and so much more.

Flamingos were very far away and the water stinks! Animals in the surrounding area made up for this. Close to Sara a resort

If you are looking for Flamingos I suggest you skip Lake Nakuru and instead visit Lake Bogoria. Rothschild Giraffe, Black and White Rhinos, Lions, Leopard and other plains game are easily spotted at Lake Nakuru.
