This Kenya Safari explores Lake Nakuru National Park – dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation. Twenty seven percent (27%) of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters.
Lake Nakuru National Park lies in the volcanic – strewn Great Rift Valley, one of the chain of 8 lakes, which stretch the length of Kenya, Tanzania to Ethiopia. 160 kilometers from Nairobi, you will drive through the farmlands of the Kikuyu Community and drop down the escarpment into the dramatic floor of the Rift Valley.
Lunch will be served at a Lodge in the Park and thereafter another ‘Spice’ game drive en-route to Nairobi arriving before dusk.
The Park was declared a Rhino Sanctuary in 1983. The Rhino stocking programme which ensued received white rhinos from South Africa. Currently the sanctuary has approximately 45 black and 31 white rhinoceros.
The lake water is highly saline but supports a habitat rich in bio diversity including a variety of aquatic flora and fauna. The lake also is inhabited by water mammals mainly hippopotamus and claw less otters while the terrestrial part of the park supports a large number of other African plain mammals. The Park is also a sanctuary of the Rothschild’s Giraffe.
This Tour Price is Based on a Per Person Sharing, in a Pop Up Safari Van and in a Double/ Twin Room/ Tent.
