Highlights of a 2 days overnight nakuru tours safaris

Nakuru Flamingo Bird watching 2 days tour

Lake-Nakuru-National-Park-1Lake Nakuru national park is home to more than 400 species of different birds. The arrival is through the town streets of Nakuru town and nothing prepared you for the lush green vegetation around the lake as you drive down towards the park gate. The yellow backed acacia trees form a continuous level canopy around the lake and the flamingos line the edges of the lake with a pink ribbon that is visible from miles away. On a good day, Lake Nakuru is home to more than 2 million flamingos. The flamingos are however migratory and what you saw last week may not be what you will see today.

The other birds to watch at the lake include the great white pelican with their synchronized swimming moves as they herd for fish in the lake. The cormorants and egrets, the go away bird and the vultures and the occasional cry of a kingfisher as it bobs its head vigorously back and forth. There are so many birds in Lake Nakuru to see and take pictures and videos of especially near the lake. The park allows you to alight from the tour van at some points and approach the lake edges to take some close up pictures.

Lake Nakuru 2 Days Game Drive Tour Safari

Lake nakuru national park is also famous for its beautiful and rewarding game drive. There are atleast 4 of the big five wildlife including the Lions, Buffalos, Rhinos and Leopards. There are no elephants in the park due to its small size and the fact that it’s all fenced in. This fact however makes it easy to do a game drive and see most of the animals in the park.

Lake nakuru is the only park that you can easily see the tree climbing lions or the free roaming leopards taking a stroll around the game tracks.
