Lake Nakuru National Park lies in the volcano strewn Rift Valley and is one of the chain of 8 Lakes which stretch the length of Kenya from Ethiopia to Tanzania. The park offers an incredible 450 different species of birds which are water, fish-eating, terrestrial and migratory birds to include Pelican, Fish Eagle, Secretary Bird, Heron, Egret, Hammerkop and Grebe.
