Enjoy a game drive on the water to get a closer look at some water-based wildlife, like the majestic hippo stretching its mouth wide open and revealing its terrifying set of premolars. The area is particularly well-known for its rich birdlife, especially the fantastic pink plumage of the flamingos flocking to Lake Nakuru.
This adventure is perfect for wildlife photographers and bird-watching enthusiasts in particular. As the first national park declared an Important Bird Area (IBA) and Endemic Bird Area (EBA), you’ll be in seventh heaven as you float along the lake with something new catching your eye every couple of minutes.
Lake Nakuru National Park is located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, East Africa. It’s about a three-hour drive from the capital Nairobi, but there are also fly-in options if you want to skip the road transfer. The area is probably most famous for the pink plumage of flamingos crowding the river, a unique sight.
