LAKE NAKURU

Dusty place is Lake Nakuru’s name in the Maasai language.

It is a soda lake situated at 5754 feet above sea level, in the Great Rift Valley.

Millions of flamingos get attracted by its wealth of algae, nesting along the shores and making the lake a floating mass of pink.

The park is one of the largest concentrations of black and white rhinos in the country. There are also Rothschild’s giraffes, warthogs, baboons and waterbucks. Among the predators are lions, leopards and cheetahs.

You can soak a magnificent view of the lake from Baboon’s cliff, a popular view point. This spot is at one end of the park and is situated at quite an altitude, thereby giving a great view of the stunning spectacle below.
