General Information on Lake Nakuru National Park
Lake Nakuru is a very shallow strongly alkaline lake 62 km2 in extent. It is set in a picturesque landscape of surrounding woodland and grassland next to Town of Nakuru. The landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with a Euphorbia forest on the eastern perimeter.

Lake Nakuru offers one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife sights, that of brilliant pink flamingos as far as the eye can see. When conditions are right, between one and two million lesser and greater flamingos feed around the shores of the shallow soda lake, together with tens of thousands of other birds. The best place to view the birds is from Baboon Cliff, where you can look out over the dazzling fringe of pink around the lake’s shores.

But flamingos are not the only birdlife found at Lake Nakuru, pelicans and cormorants are also in abundance. In fact, Lake Nakuru boasts over 400 species of birds, some of the greatest variety in the country.

The Park itself surrounds the Lake entirely and has recently been expanded to provide a sanctuary for black rhino. This step has required the erection of a large fence around the perimetre of the park to prevent poachers from entering the park.

Nderit Gate, near Lake Nakuru Lodge on the eastern side of the Lake, is also also seldom used though some private vehicles and tour operators enter and exit through this route. Access through Nderit Gate is quickest for visitors arriving from Lake Elmenteita or those coming from Masaai Mara via Mau Narok.
