Lake Nakuru National Park
Just two hours’ drive from Nairobi, Lake Nakuru is among Kenya’s finest national parks. Flanked by rocky escarpments, pockets of forest and at least one waterfall, the park is pretty year-round. Rising water levels in 2014 forced the park’s famous flamingos to flee, but water levels are prone to fluctuation and depending on the time of your visit, they may be back in residence. You can also expect to see both black and white rhinos; look past the hordes of horny baboons and you’ll see hippos, or perhaps a lucky leopard or two. There are also about 50 rare tree-climbing lions in the park, spotted several times per week. The usual zebras, buffaloes and Rothschild’s giraffes seal the deal.
The forested area below Flamingo Hill is a favourite lion-spotting point. It’s here that you should look up, not down as you are used to in other parks – lionesses love to sleep in these trees. Leopards frequent the same area, and are also seen around Makolia camp.
The caves beneath Lion Hill in the park’s northeast once served as a defacto lion cub nursery. These days, they are more commonly frequented by snakes. Pythons lurk in the cool, forested areas early in the mornings.
