What You Can Expect

Nairobi Tour to the Lake Nakuru National Park

A lion in Lake Nakuru National Park.

Get an early start on the day with pickup at your Nairobi hotel, then travel to Lake Nakuru National Park, a roughly 2-hour drive through Kenyan countryside. On your way to the park, pause for views of the Rift Valley at a scenic overlook, then stop by the Lake Nakuru National Park entrance to purchase your day pass.

Watch for wildlife as you start the first game drive of the day: Lake Nakuru National Park is home to white and black rhinos, hippos, and horny baboons, as well as unusual tree-climbing lions. Try to spot the leopards that stalk their prey here, and pass by herds of Rothschild’s giraffes, zebras, and buffalo. While Lake Nakuru’s vast flocks of flamingoes have been thinned by rising water levels, some of the bright-pink birds can often be seen along the lake shore.

Pause for lunch at a park lodge, and rest up for the afternoon game drive—animals differing feeding habits mean that different game appears throughout the day, and making a second game drive increases your chances of seeing more species. Depart the park between 3pm and 4pm, depending on game activity, and watch the sun set as you make the return trip to Nairobi. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel between 6pm and 7pm.

This was a really nice tour. It was my first time doing a safari tour so I was surprised to learn I could not leave the safari car because its too dangerous to step out. I later realized this is true with all safari cars. I imagined something different lol. Anyway the tour takes places in the safari car driving along the main path to try to get the best view of the animals. The particular day my friend and I went it had just rain and it was very muddy and we could not get very close to see the flamingos. The guide did let me step out at 1 point close to the vechile to try to get a picture with a flamingo in a spot that he deemed safe but all the pictures were very far. There was a beautiful area he took us to at the end of the trip and it had really beautiful panoramic views of the lake. We also saw a rhino really super far. We did not have expert cameras only our cell phones so our pictures we not the best. I recommend if you do not have a professional camera to get binoculars and you put your cell phone behind the looking part of the binoculars and you will get much better pictures. A cell phone camera can only zoom in so much even if it is some spectacular iphone or droid doesnt matter. you will not get good pictures with a cell phone. Everything is just too far away.
