Just two hours’ drive from Nairobi, Kenya, and on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. Surrounded by wooded, bushy grassland, and a waterfall, the park is gorgeous year-round and is home to both black and white rhinos, lions, leopards, hippos and giraffes.

This is one of Kenya’s premium parks, and is a bird-lover’s paradise – attracting staggering numbers of colourful flamingos to feed on the algae in Lake Nakuru each year.
