Tour And Safari To Lake Nakuru Kenya
Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes at an elevation of 1754 m above sea level. It lies to the south of Nakuru, in the rift valley of Kenya and is protected by Lake Nakuru National Park. The lake’s abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons and other large mammals.

When To Go Lake Nakuru
- flamingos at Lake Nakuru draws guests from around the world, but the population at the lake varies based on the alkalinity of the lake. Higher levels of precipitation decrease the alkalinity, and there is less algae for the birds. As a result, the largest number of flamingos may migrate to other neighboring soda lakes in Kenya such as Bogoria and Natron for a period of time. Your best bet is to plan your flamingo-watching tour of Lake Nakuru during the dry-hot season in January and February.
- During the long dry season, there are limited numbers of fresh water sources around which the animals congregate. Another benefit of the dry season is that there are fewer mosquitoes present, so you can enjoy a more comfortable trip to Kenya
