Primates and rhinos at Nakuru

on .

Lake Nakuru National ParkLake Nakuru National Park is noted for its large number of bird species including the Greater and Lesser Flamingo, the diverse vegetation featuring the most extensive euphorbia forest in Africa and its population of Black and White rhinos. It's within reachable in a day trip north-west from Nairobi, sitting at the floor of East African Rift Valley. The lake normally occupies about a third of the park. Large populations of the Cyanophyte algae blossom in the waters and give the lake its distinct green-blue color. The lake margins support dry transitional savanna and associated herbivorous fauna.
