Home to migrating Flamingos and Black and White Rhinoceros, the lake the about 160 km north west of Nairobi. As with Masai Mara, looking for rhinos here is pretty much going on a game ride. We had a professional driver accompany us on this ride as well.
The Lake itself was occupied by flocks of migratory flamingos.
This is one of the very few places in Kenya, and probably the world, where Black (critically endangered) and White Rhinos are spotted. The Nakuru National Park acts as a sanctuary for these species, protecting them against poaching.
We came across several other animals as well – from lions and zebras to deer and giraffes.
