The lake Nakuru national park is a bird sanctuary, as well as a rhino and Rothschild giraffe sanctuary. The park is also an important wetland protected by the RAMSAR convection on wetland areas. There are more than 600 bird species in the lake Nakuru national park which are the biggest attraction here. Birds are the greatest attraction for a Lake Nakuru National Park Day tour.
Lake Nakuru national park is also known for its rhinos and lions. The leopards are also easy to spot at times as they can be seen perched on acacia trees way up high. Nakuru also has the largest population of the endangered Rothschild giraffe and the rhinos. It is also a place where you will see zebras, buffalos, hippos, gazelles, cheetahs, baboons and stripped hyenas.
The lake has however recently flooded and affected the availability of the blue green algae which is main food for flamingos. The flamingos have since migrated from lake Nakuru and the vast numbers are now found in Lake Bogoria, another rift valley soda lake some 87km North of Nakuru.
