There were baboons everywhere at the main entrance. All sizes. I thought the little ones on their mommies' backs were so cute. The big ones looked scary though.

You have to love just sitting and watching families of Baboons taking care of daily routines or just being lazy. So awesome to observe wildlife in their habitats. Also saw some Vervits sunning themselves on the rocks on the west side of the lake.

There are a large number of animals, but in a few areas a large number of Baboons. Families with babies, cute. Don't leave your vehicle open as they'll tear it up.

Baboon Hill view is magical with the entire Lake Nakuru & swampland which makes it so impossible to leave as the view from the top is beautiful with crystal clear waters & trees lined up on the sides.

Baboons in Nakuru Park have done well even if the other animals there are having a bit of a struggle. Didn't see many Vervits I have to say. Words of warning DO NOT FEED THE BABOONS, they will come and try and raid you if...More

One obvious question: Whoever writes these reviews seems quite keen on baboons and some creatures called 'VERVITS'. Might be helpful to educate the author on proper spelling and the proper name of these lovely creatures. I have never heard of them being disrespectfully referred to as 'vervits' in over 30yrs visiting this beautiful country.
