There are the millions of flamingos seeking their food in the salty deep-green waters of Lake Nakuru. The protected area is primarily for birds, of which 400 to 500 species can be found here including cormorants and pelicans. However, visitors to Lake Nakuru may also catch a glimpse of Thomson gazelles, Grant gazelles, impalas, waterbucks, giraffes, buffaloes, and leopards. This park has become Kenya's premier Rhino sanctuary and is now home to both Black and White Rhinos, totaling to over 80 in number and could be one of the greatest attractions in Nakuru with its fantastic agglomeration of lesser flamingoes estimated to number between one and two million and make the lake shore seem pink, while species of other water birds have been recorded. The national park covers 52 Sq. Kms in area. Lake Nakuru Lodge and Sarova Lion Hill Lodge are among the best places one can find accommodation inside the park while Flamingo hill tented camp is the newest property though located outside the park along the park fence and from the tent you can see wildlife grazing along the fence that include rhinos, buffalo, gazelles, zebras among others.
