Once in the park, you will see many wild animals: giraffes, antelopes, rhinos, zebras, buffaloes, hyenas, lions and other animals that make up the incredible animal diversity of the park. Lake Nakuru is also a paradise for bird watchers and wildlife photographers, as many species of birds inhabit the area around the salt lake. The region is world famous for its pink flamingos, present in their thousands, which feed on the algae (such as Spirulina) present in the lake. The view of the rosy reflections that dress the lake is an incredible experience, admire.
Participants can also visit a viewpoint that offers a spectacular panorama of the lake and the surrounding hills. The place lends itself to photography and allows picnics for amateurs.
