Lake Nakuru National Park could be one of the greatest attraction in Nakuru with its fantastic agglomeration of lesser flamingoes. These are estimated to number between one and two million and make the lake shore seem pink. 389 species of other waterbirds have been recorded.
A rhino sanctuary has been established and rhinos have been brought in from Solio Ranch. The national park covers 52 Sq. Kms in area. Lake Nakuru Lodge and Sarova Lion Hill Lodge are two places one can find accommodation.
