Lake Nakuru is the reason the park exists, and animals are plentiful. During our afternoon game drive, we saw rhinos, eland, giraffes, waterbuck, warthogs, zebras, water buffalo, impala, gazelles, baboons, and thousands of flamingoes. We drove down to the lakeside, and it was the only place during our entire safari that we could exit the vehicle.
We stayed at the Lion Hill Lodge, which was very nice, with great food and service. They also had a nice evening show with native dancers and acrobatic performers.

After we'd had our fill, we headed away from the shore and immediately came upon two rhinos munching away in the grass. We were able to get incredibly close to the animals in this park. We saw another rhino walking along and managed to position our van so that he walked within a few feet of us.
We also enjoyed seeing Thomson's gazelles and zebra on our way up to the lodge. We made it to the lodge just as the rain began, and enjoyed the most incredible downpour ever! Thunder and lightening filled the sky as the rain poured down.
