Pink Flamingos on Lake Nakuru

One of Kenya’s trademark images – a massive flock of pink flamingo wading in the shallows of a soda lake – was captured in the setting of Lake Nakuru National Park, a major park and important sanctuary for Rhino.

An ornithologist’s dream, apart from the flocks of flamingos that feed around the shores of the lake when the conditions are favourable, there are also around 400 other bird species to be viewed.

At about 180 km², of which the lake covers almost one third, the park is situated along rocky escarpments, and other attributes include patches of acacia forest and a waterfall – attractive year-round.

Great herds of waterbuck, zebra, buffalo and the endangered Rothschild Giraffe can be found.
