Lake Nakuru is Kenya's most visited National Park. Located 160km and 2 1/2 hours from Nairobi, the park is an important Ramsar site and home to thousands of different bird species.
The 188sq km Lake Nakuru is the only KWS-administered reserve that is fully enclosed. Once just a bird sanctuary, Lake Nakuru is now the best place in Kenya to see the highly protected black and white rhino.
