Activity Short Description
Lake Nakuru National Park is a wonderful place to do game-viewing. It’s a very short drive from the Pelican Lodge to Lake Nakuru and well worth the time.
Lake Nakuru became world reknown when it led the fight of saving the African rhino. Thanks to the great work by the community around the Lake, it now boasts one of the largest rhino populations worldwide.
But of course you probably know it for the flamingos. But did you know that it is home to some of the fiercest leopards in the world? For a small national park, this Lake is teeming with nature that you will never find anywhere else even in Kenya.
The lake is picturesque and within the park there is an area of acacia forest (great for spotting leopards) keep driving, and just a few km away from here, you’ll find yourself at the top of Baboon Cliff, which is a great place for a picnic with stunning views over the lake, the savannah and the forest all down below.
