Often shrouded in a carpet of pink flamingos, beautiful Lake Nakuru - and the surrounding national park - is home to a great number of wildlife and bird species.

Meaning 'rough water' in Maasai due to the occurrence of sudden storms, Lake Naivasha's surface is also broken by the yawns of hippos and countless birds flying across its surface.
