The lions in Nakuru national park are usually found along the acacia forest around the lake mostly to the north and west of the lake.
3. Discover Rhinos by the Dozen in Your Nairobi Layover
Nakuru is a very successful sanctuary for both black and white rhinos. This means that it’s very easy to see rhinos specially the white rhinos just near the roads around the lake. The white rhinos are easier to spot since they occupy the open savannah grasslands as opposed to their black cousins that usually reside in forested areas and are generally shy. You will be lucky and see a fleeting shape of a black rhino some hundred meters away.
4. Watch Flamingos by the Millions on the Lake Nakuru Layover Tour
Lake Nakuru national park is famous for the millions of flamingos that had previously occupied its shores. At one point when the effluent from Nakuru town had increased to alarming levels, they left for several years. In 2019, they came back in their millions when the lake was cleaner and less flooded. Flamingos feed on blue green algae which gives them the pink colour. The flamingos are now back and you will be able to see them along the shores of the lake in your Nairobi airport layover day trip.
5. See Leopards on Trees on a Nairobi Stopover Day Trip
Leopards in Nakuru Park are easier to see as they hang atop acacia trees and sometimes as they walk along the park roads. It’s always an amazing sight to see this big cat predator. If you are extremely lucky, you may just see him at his hunting best. Leopards are ambush hunters so seeing an actual kill is extremely difficult but it does happen. Leopards in Nakuru love to hang by the high trees, the rocky cliffs and the ravines.
