Although Lake Naivasha in Kenya is not a national park in its own right, the beautiful lake has become a staple of Kenyan safaris.
Located between the rhinos of Lake Nakuru and the vast plains of the Maasai Mara, Lake Naivasha has become a popular stop along the most popular Kenyan safari routes.
With its serene surrounds, an abundance of accommodation options to suit all budgets, and a variety of activities – Lake Naivasha is an especially good stop for those on a family safari.
Nakuru has more than just flamingos. This is a major National Park and an important sanctuary for Rhino. Both Black and White Rhino are found here, and are often seen resting under acacias by the Lake shore. The park abounds with game. There are huge herds of waterbuck, zebra, buffalo, the endangered Rothschild Giraffe and more.
This is one of your best chances of seeing Leopard in Kenya, and there are several large prides of Lion.
Exploring beyond the lake is always rewarding and there are forests, cliffs, waterfalls and more to be found here.
