I have been away for a while and have not written any posts. So many things have happened in my life since February. We have visited Zanzibar island, Tanzania in the beginning of March and spent there wonderful time. So I will definitely write the some posts about our trip to Spice Island. This weekend we enjoyed game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park. It was such a nice stay there that I decided to write the post about our visit to Nakuru park before post about Zanzibar.
Lake Nakuru lies about 164 km from Nairobi. We left on Saturday at 8.30 am from Nairobi and made it a about 11.30 am in Nakuru National Park. The road was pretty easy, without usual Nairobi potholes. Also it was very picturesque, as we went parallel with The Rift Valley.
The lake is world famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth - myriads of fuchsia pink flamingos whose numbers are legion, often more than a million - or even two million.
As well as flamingos, there are myriad other bird species that inhabit the lake and the area surrounding it, such as eagles, herons, kingfishers...
The park has one of the largest concentrations of black rhinoceros in the country, plus around white rhinos. There are also a number of Rothschild's giraffes. Among the predators are lion, cheetah and leopard, which we unfortunately haven't seen. The park also has large sized pythons that inhabit the dense woodlands, and can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees (the same here).
So keep reading and you will know what animals we have seen this time in this marvelous park.
This time we stayed in Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge. We liked this lodge a lot in terms of service, quality and quantity of their food, entertainment program.
