This lake offers one of the world's most spectacular wildlife sights: 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 get an excellent view over the lake, and the film of pink along its fringe.

It's often combined with the other lakes - Naivasha for example - and wildlife areas such as the nearby Aberdare National Park.

Game spotting is also good. Lake Nakuru was declared a national park in 1961 and it now covers an area of some 180 km2.You will see warthog, waterbuck and large numbers of impala; slightly shyer residents include buffalo, Rothschild giraffe, eland, the occasional leopard and both black and white rhino. A herd of hippo have their territory in the northern part of the lake.

It is important to remember that there are times when the lake conditions change and the birds move on to other soda lakes. So check first before setting off.
