I’ve always enjoyed the outdoors since I was young. And one of my favorite places to visit is Nakuru Town, due to the large number of outdoor activities available in this town. One of my favorite places is Nakuru National Park. It’s conveniently close to the town and also happens to have a large variety of animal species including the endangered southern white rhinos, Rothschild’s giraffes, leopards and lions. Lake Nakuru is also within this park and you get a chance to view the beautiful flamingos from the beaches of the lake. Park entry fees are KSh800 for adult citizens and residents, and KSh200 for children. Make sure you carry your ID card or proof of residency since non-residents pay more. You are allowed to drive yourself around the park and that’s my favourite way to explore it. You get a chance to spend as much time viewing whatever animals you like, unlike when you use a tour bus. I have a lot of interesting memories of this park. Including being slapped and robbed by a monkey when I was a young boy. I guess the naughty fella wanted my eggs more than I did. To being chased down by a rhino while we were driving along the trail. That experience was frankly scary, but I’ve been addicted to the adrenaline rush ever since. If you want to build fond memories that will last you a life-time Lake Nakuru National Park will offer you plenty of that. I highly recommend it.

Lake Nakuru National Park, located in Nakuru County 159km from Nairobi CBD and 15 minutes from Nakuru Town, is known for its pink flamingos which swarm half of the lake at times. A cab from Nakuru town costs 450/= I was there with my family over the festive season. It has the first gate which brought us to the parking lot and reception and the next which leads to the park. At the parking lot, I got to feed some monkeys and I could see many of the other tourists doing the same. There was even an entire church bus which had brought its members to the park. We paid 1800/= to take the 7 seater land cruiser, a driver and a tour guide. I’m glad I had carried my camera because there were so much wildlife to see. We spotted buffaloes then a few meters away there was a herd of gazelles. Those gazelles look so elegant. We also got to see a chase between a lioness and an antelope. I have never felt so excited in my life. We passed drove through the shore of the lake where we got to see a handful of flamingos. The guide told us that most of the flamingos had migrated. We were then take to this spot called the baboon cliff. From there you can see much of the pack since it is in a raised location. There were a lot of baboons there and we got to feed them. A tip, when you visit this place, carry a lot of bananas because there is a lot of feeding to do. I can’t wait to visit again.

Wildlife Haven

View All

5/ 5

If you happen to visit Nakuru, Lake Nakuru National Park should be on you list of destinations to pop by. Termed as a “A beautiful wildlife haven”, it is located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland. It is famous for hosting quite a number of beautiful pink flamingos. The park is located 2km from Nakuru CBD and an uber from the CBD would cost 450/=. We got there at around 2 pm. Just before you go for the drive, there is a parking lot and the best part about this parking lot is the baboons. There are baboons everywhere. Some even came to our car and took some bananas from us. We took the 7 seater Land Rover which costs 1800/=. This package includes the car, a 2 hour tour around the park and a tour guide. Driving through the park, I got to appreciate the wonder that is wildlife. I was giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes, gazelles, rhinos and some lions. Luckily we were on time to see the flamingos. The make almost a quarter of the lake turn pink. Its an amazing site to behold. Afterwards we were taken to the baboon cliff which is a spot on top of a crater within the park where there are hundreds of baboons and the most beautiful view of the entire park and lake. The whole experience was magical.
