Details of Two Day Flamingo Fling

While the flamingos may have moved on from Lake Nakuru National Park, their new home of Lake Bogoria is just a short drive away from the national park.

Combine a traditional game drive through Lake Nakuru National Park with a visit to the brightly coloured flamingo flocks that now call Lake Bogoria home.

DAY 1 - NAIROBI - LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK

Departing from Nairobi after breakfast, you'll make the three hour drive across to Lake Nakuru National Park.

While the park's resident flamingos have since moved on, the park is still home to four of the Big Five (you won't see elephants here) as well as a huge variety of bird life. Your half-day game drive in the park will showcase some of Kenya's most beautiful terrain while you spot large herds of buffalo, families of baboons, both black and white rhinoceros, and even lazy lions and leopards.

You'll then overnight either within the national park at one of its lodges, or in the nearby town of Nakuru Town.

DAY 2 - LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK - LAKE BOGORIA - NAIROBI

You'll depart after breakfast for the two hour drive to Lake Bogoria.

The new home of Kenya's famous flamingo flocks, Lake Bogoria is a volcanically active national reserve where the massive flock of both Lesser and Greater Flamingo can now be found.

While not a game drive park in its own right, Lake Bogoria is home to a huge variety of bird life as well as Greater Kudu, zebras, cheetahs, buffalo, hyenas, impala, and baboons.

After visiting the lake and snapping some photos, you'll return to Nairobi by mid-afternoon.
