Full description
Lake Nakuru is a well known bird watchers paradise. The massive population of Flamingos is the main drawcard, but there is also an abundance of other wildlife waiting to be discovered. Lying in the volcano-strewn Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru is one of a chain of 8 lakes which stretch the length of Kenya from Tanzania to Ethiopia. The two hours drive from Nairobi (99 miles / 160 kilometer) takes you through highland farms of the Kikuyu people before descending the escarpment into the dramatic landscape of the Rift Valley. You will have lunch in the park, followed by an extensive tour which focuses on the bewildering spectacle of a million flamingos, but which also seeks out the large variety of wildlife with which the park abounds.

Few animals and no Flamingos :(

The driver/guide was very nice and did the best he could. But paying over 200 dolares is a bit to expensive for so little animals (no lions, no flamingos).
