Lake Nakuru is a shallow alkaline lake on the edges of Nakuru town and
lies a distance of 160 kilometers from Nairobi. The lake is world famous
as home to millions of flamingoes. The number of flamingoes depends on
the water level which determines the quantity of algae on which the birds
feed. Flamingoes are known to migrate to other Rift Valley lakes whenever
the water level is low. The National Park surrounds the lake and was gazetted
to protect the colony of flamingoes as well as provide sanctuary for endangered
species such as the rhino. There are about 25 white and black rhinos,
one of the largest concentrations in the country. Predators are also residents
to this park while Rothschild’s giraffe have been trans-located

because of its geological magnificence, but also because it serves as
an extraordinary natural sanctuary for some of Africa’s largest
populations of large mammals. Ngorongoro and other freestanding mountains
are volcanic in origin, formed during the fracturing process that created
the Rift valley 15 to 20 million years ago. When it peaked in size 3 million
years ago it was a similar height to Mt. Kilimanjaro today
