Full description
Enjoy a complimentary hotel pick-up from your centrally located hotel in Nairobi or Naivasha town. Meet your professional driver who will introduce himself in a friendly manner and offer you a brief introduction to the trip ahead. Climb into a luxurious open-roofed van and set off for the Lake Nakuru National Park Stop at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint for panoramic views and the chance to take photos.

After a 3-hour drive, arrive at the National Park and begin your game drive. Discover The Pink Lake, which is world-famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth - myriads of fuchsia pink flamingos whose numbers are legion, often more than a million - or even two million. Learn about how the spectacular birds feed on the abundant algae, which thrives in the warm waters. 

Continue your exploration of the park which now is home to more than 25 eastern black rhinoceros, one of the largest concentrations in the country, plus around 70 endemic southern white rhinos. There are also a number of Rothschild's giraffe, again relocated for safety from western Kenya beginning in 1977. Waterbuck are very common and both the Kenyan species are found here. Keep your eyes peeled for predators such as Masai lions, cheetahs, and leopards, the latter being seen much more frequently in recent times. The park also has large pythons that inhabit the dense woodlands, and can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees. Stop for a hot lunch at Sarova Lion Hill Camp. Later, you will continue with game drives and leave the park for Nairobi arriving at around 7 PM.
