AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN LAKE NAKURU WITH AFRICANMECCA
Although Lake Nakuru National Park is one of Kenya's smaller parks, there are still plenty of territories to explore and discover! A lovely cup of morning tea or coffee and biscuit awakens your senses to the wildness of Africa that awaits you! You prepare to spend your full day on a game drive, one of the most exhilarating ways to explore this unique bush outback during your adventurous Lake Nakuru vacation in East Africa by driving across the terrain in a custom safari vehicle with a knowledgeable and experienced AfricanMecca guide.
Following the well-maintained coarse roads in the park, your guide takes you to places with the highest concentrations of fauna, whether the animals are gathered around isolated watering holes or scattered throughout the park.
Foragers, grazers, hunters and scavengers all play their roles in the natural existence that is found only in the most remote areas of the planet, and your dream travel in Kenya gives you a front row seat! Spotted hyenas hunt down flamingos and then proceed out to clean the remaining morsels from an impala carcass left by a leopard, and their cackling, high-pitched sounds indicate an ongoing fight for the finest pieces of boney meat.
At a distant, a small group of zebra drink from a watering hole while the rare black rhino intently watches the approaching vehicle. Your guide points to hyenas, and suddenly a lioness appears. The hyenas reluctantly retreat, and the lioness drags the carcass back to her pride!
This is only a sampling of the non-stop excitement that you have during your morning and afternoon game drives in the park (read more on when is the best time to go to Lake Nakuru). You may also sight white rhinos, Rothschild’s giraffes, hippos, baboons, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, colobus monkeys, impalas, buffalos, reedbucks, waterbucks and other herbivores, as well as highly elusive golden cats, wild cats, bat-eared foxes and other carnivores. Your guide will help you see long-eared leaf-nosed bats, rock hyraxes and other smaller denizens, as well as large python snakes coiled around the branches of acacia trees.
With more than 450 bird species having been identified in the park, bird lovers, ornithologists and wildlife seeking guests find so many beautiful feathered avian-life to watch in Lake Nakuru Park. The million mark lesser and greater flamingos are the most publicized, but many other of the park's magnificent birdlife are attention-worthy. With the help of your guide in Nakuru, your birding travel in Kenya is wondrous and fun-filled as you locate, identify and log all the species that you see!
Resident species include nyanza swift, grey wren-warbler, d'arnaud's barbet, bronze sunbird, jackson's widowbird, the near-threatened grey-crested helmet-strike, to name only a few of the year-round species. Migratory species include the endangered Madagascar pond-heron, as well as black-necked grebe, gull-billed tern, black-winged stilt and many more. An ornithologist-combo wildlife specialist guide escorts you during your game drives, or you may prefer a boating safari on the lake in Naivasha as an optional trip extension with AfricanMecca.
At the highest point of the hills around the lake is a place known as "Baboon Cliff." This incredible lookout point gives you the best views of the vast expanse of the lake and park. You can unpack a picnic lunch and watch wildlife activity by visually stalking safari vehicles below, or stand at the fence line for a "bird's eye" view of the flamingos, goliath herons, kingfishers, saddle-billed stork and other species.
Baboon Cliff is so named due to the baboons that live at the overlook. You may have a chance to observe the social structure of these primates, as well as the antics of baby baboons that frolic and play, and the patience of the adults who watch over the young and protect the group.

BEST TIME TO VISIT LAKE NAKURU
Lake Nakuru is a year-round wildlife park. During the cool-dry season of July through October, there are limited numbers of fresh water sources around which the animals congregate thus the best time.
