The fourth largest city in Kenya, the city of Nakuru lies about 1,850 metres (6,070 feet) above the sea level. The spectacle of the immense beauty of the pink flamingos are coupled with the beautiful waters of the lake and the over 400 species of birds that you can spot make Lake Nakuru and Lake Nakuru National Park undoubtedly the most visited attractions around. Interestingly, Lake Nakuru is also the best place to spot wild rhinos in all of Africa. However, there are other interesting attractions around as well, such as the Hyrax Hill Reserve, Lord Egerton Castle, and the Menengai Crater, from where you can hike the second largest volcano in Africa.
