One such is Lake Nakuru, around which a National Park was gazetted in 1968. It was created to protect the large flocks of lesser flamingoes, which turn the lake a vivid pink. The park now protects other endangered species in the woodland and bush grassland, in particular black and white rhino. Game viewing is easy in this park as the roads run through the bush and along the lake.
Lake Nakuru National Park is famous for its flamingoes and pelicans, and there is nowhere else you can see black and white rhino browsing and grazing with such a backdrop. It also has black and white colobus monkeys as well as numerous antelopes, buffalo and the rare Rothschild's giraffe. Leopard are often seen during daylight hours.
