Lake Nakuru National Park

The park’s main feature is a large shallow lake supporting great birdlife including big flock of pelicans and variable flocks of flamingoes, this making it famous.

It offers easy wildlife viewing of most big safari animals with the expectation of elephants , black and white rhinos, giraffes, buffalo and hippos and if lucky visitors might spot lions which occasionally climb trees.

Lake Nakuru NP has a breathtaking scenery. The Rift Valley escarpment, dotted with euphorbia trees rises up from the lake shore.

Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for bird watching, game drives, hiking, picnic, camping, sundowners, nature walks and photographic safaris among others.

Location

Lake Nakuru National Park lies on the floor of the Great Rift Valley surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland.  Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges.

What Others Say About Us

I recommend Simba Paka Safaris. We had a great experience at the Maasai Mara with our guide who was extremely knowledgeable and managed to help us see all the animals that we wanted to see. Diana B
I did the 4 day Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru safaris. From start to finish, Simba Paka Tours was professional, reactive, and great at communicating all facets of the trip. I did the mid-range tour and Paul organized my hotels on arrival and departure, transfers, and the best tour guide possible. If you do this tour and you get Johnny Jackson as a guide, you will be very lucky. Hellen W
Amazing Safari! We did a Safari with Paul and his staff, 5 days in Masai Mara. It was a wonderful experience, that allowed us to see all the Big Five thanks to our guide's ability! Paul is very gentle and professional. I recommend it very much for a unique experience. Sabina F
Mr. Paul is a very friendly and just a gentlemen person. We did a 7-day Kenya safari and we not only saw the big 5. Following advice from Paul from Simba Paka Safaris we went to the following national parks; Nakuru, Masai Mara, Amboseli, and Lake Naivasha. Bhagwan S
We did a 7-day Safari from Masai Mara over Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha to Amboseli. First of all, our driver/guide Francis was wonderful! He was super engaged, always attentive, and made sure we got the best possible views and pictures. When we asked for something, he immediately ensured it was sorted out. Max F
