Nakuru National Park Holidays

On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by forests and grassland, lies the spectacular Lake Nakuru National Park.

Get your camera ready – the park offers stunning vistas and sights of rugged rhinos grazing or a multitude of flamingos creating a shimmering pink carpet as they congregate around Lake Nakuru itself. 

Enjoy the diversity of landscapes, from the shallow alkaline waters of Lake Nakuru to rocky escarpments, picturesque waterfalls and yellow acacia woodlands.

To extend your adventure, visit the Masai Mara before or after your trip to the park, or why not combine Nakuru with Meru National Park  for unspoilt landscapes and dazzles of wild zebras. Your perfect safari experience is just a call away – contact one of our Destination Specialists for a tailor made itinerary.
