This article outlines Lake Nakuru’s National Park Entrance Fee.

However, before that, here are a few facts about Lake Nakuru and Lake Nakuru National Park.

Brief Background about Lake Nakuru

Lake Nakuru is a saltwater lake located in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya. It lies 1,754 meters above the sea level, covers an area of approximately 45 square kilometers and has a maximum depth of about 3 meters. Lake Nakuru is fed by four seasonal rivers (Lamudhiak, Njoro, Makalia and Nderit) and one permanent river (Ngosur) but has no visible outlet.

Lake Nakuru’s water is alkaline, with a pH level between 9 and 10, which supports the growth of blue-green algae, the primary food source for the flamingos. As of today, the lake is known for its large population of flamingos and a wide variety of bird species, including greater and lesser flamingos, pelicans, and Hottentot teal.

Brief Background about Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru National Park, which surrounds the lake, was established in 1961 and covers an area of 188 square kilometers. It is a popular tourist destination and offers a variety of activities, including game drives, bird watching, and hiking. The park is home to 4 of the big 5 animals. Other animals that can be found in the park include baboons, warthogs, waterbucks, and buffaloes.

Lake Nakuru is also a sanctuary for black rhinoceroses. The park is home to a significant population of these endangered animals, which are protected by armed guards. Visitors can take guided tours to see the rhinos in their natural habitat. Currently, the park boasts of more than 50 rhinoceroses.

In overall, Lake Nakuru is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in wildlife and nature. It is worth visitin because the combination of a large population of flamingos and the big four (rhinos, leopards, buffaloes, and lions) make it a unique and special place. The park is open all year round, but the best time to visit is during the dry season, between December and May, when the water levels are low and the birds are more concentrated.
