From Nyeri, on the foothills of Aberdares, we will be heading towards Lake Nakuru in the heart of the Rift Valley, where we will be staying at a lovely lodge looking on to the lake. Its waters look pink due to the great number of Flamingos that live in its shores and which have made the Park world famous. Likewise we will spot a wide range of animals including the White Rhino, Lions and Leopards.
Day 7 – LAKE NAKURU – LAKE BARINGO
