Africa Travel Tours first impressions, experience lasting ones.

When To Travel

The Best Time To Visit Lake Nakuru National Park is during the dry seasons. June to October is the long dry season, and January to March is the short dry season. During the dry seasons, many of the smaller watering holes dry up, causing animals to gather at Lake Nakuru for water.


  • Game Drives: Explore the park’s diverse ecosystems on guided game drives. Encounter lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalos, giraffes, and various antelope species. Keep an eye out for the elusive tree-climbing lions.
  • Birdwatching: Lake Nakuru is a paradise for birdwatchers, with over 450 bird species. Witness the spectacle of thousands of flamingos wading in the lake, along with pelicans, storks, and raptors.
  • Photography: Capture the breathtaking landscapes, the sea of pink flamingos, and the diverse wildlife with your camera. Lake Nakuru provides fantastic photographic opportunities.
  • Hiking: Embark on guided hikes to explore the park’s scenic viewpoints, such as Baboon Cliff, offering panoramic vistas of the lake and its surroundings.
  • Makalia Falls: Visit Makalia Falls on the southern end of the park for a chance to spot baboons, colobus monkeys, and various bird species. The falls provide a refreshing backdrop for a picnic.
