Travel Tips from people who've been to Nakuru
Don't miss the sweet mart, friendliest staff and a welcome taste of home. I was hooked on masala chips amazing. and at the hotel in nakuru on the main road (can't remember what its called) you can pay just to use the pool, a real winner if your traveling and staying in less luxurious settings. If you are in nakuru for more than a week make sure you make friends with the market traders - they may take you to where they buy their goods! a real treasure trove of jewelry but alas I was sworn to secrecy!

le lake Nakuru national park a été créé en 1967 et couvre une surface de 188 km². Il se trouve à une altitude de 1758 mètres. Plus de 400 espèces d'oiseaux y vivent.
Le lac est la plus grosse réserve ornithologique d'afrique, voire du monde me semble t'il, c'est vraiment trés impressionant à voir !

If you are a photography lover, then don't go to Nakuru if (a) it is January (there could be very very few flamingoes), and (b) you are not prepared with some proper photo gear (a telephoto lens is desirable, with 300mm or beyond).
