I started at 6.30 in the morning and got to see a lot of Baboons foraging the forest floor. Besides we also saw many pheasants. On reaching the Baboon Hill view point we saw about 6 nos vervits too. We were told that these animals are easily seen more during the early mornings or evenings. It was a wonderful sight.

Baboon Hill view is magical with the entire Lake Nakuru & swampland which makes it so impossible to leave as the view from the top is beautiful with crystal clear waters & trees lined up on the sides.

We didn't expect to see all we did at Lake Nakuru in part because it is relatively close to Nakuru, the 4th largest city in Kenya, but we were pleasantly surprised. The visit didn't start out well however as we first visited the lookoff called Baboon Cliffs where two very large and aggressive males invaded our vehicle through the roof... More

Baboons in Nakuru Park have done well even if the other animals there are having a bit of a struggle. Didn't see many Vervits I have to say. Words of warning DO NOT FEED THE BABOONS, they will come and try and raid you if you have food because irresponsible people have given them food. This just causes problems for... More

Nakuru National Park safari, Kenya is a sanctuary where we saw all of the Big 5, except the elephants. The lake was full with Flamingos. we got to see Foxes and Hyenas hunting the flamingos. A lovely place, worth visiting

We really enjoyed being within a arms length distance of the Baboons, especially cute were the young infants riding on the back of their mothers!

Sightings of baboons and vervet are guaranteed. At Baboon point you get fantastic views over the lake and plenty of baboons. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE DOORS OPEN OR EAT A PICNIC IF THEY ARE ABOUT. They will try to steal your food and will enter any vehicle in search of food. Remember these are wild animals, strong and with... More

Excellent day trip here on Lake Nakuru. The baboon were very civilized and quite engaging. If you have snacks, take some to feed them, but don't get too close.
