Nakuru national park 1 day trip safari is a 2.5hr  day tour drive North West of Nairobi to Nakuru national park to see the flamingos, lions, rhinos and leopards in a single day from one of the many Nairobi hotels.

The park is located some 160km from Nairobi and was for a long time the greatest bird spectacle in the world due to over 1.5m flamingos. Below is a Nakuru national park 1 day trip itinerary.

Lake Nakuru was first gazetted as a bird sanctuary in 1960 and upgraded to National Park status in 1968.

The Park has Kenya’s largest population of rhinos.

The surface of the Lake Nakuru occupies about a third of the park. It supports a dense bloom of the blue-green Cyanophyte Spirulina platensis from which it derives its colour and is a food source for flamingos.

During peak season over millions of flamingos and Pelicans congregate on the lake.

Lake Nakuru is among Kenya’s finest national parks. Flanked by rocky escarpments, pockets of acacia forest and at least one waterfall, the park is gorgeous year-round and is home to both black and white rhinos, lions, leopards, hippos and endangered Rothschild’s giraffes.

Rising water levels in 2014 forced the park’s famous flamingos to flee (although a small number had returned at the time of research), and the lake is now hauntingly surrounded by drowned trees.

The southern end of the lake is the best place to see wildlife. The forested area below Flamingo Hill is a favourite lion-spotting point – lionesses love to sleep in the trees – while leopards frequent the same area, and are also sometimes seen around the Makalia camp.
