DAY 2 - After breakfast we make our way to Nakuru approximately 160 kms from Nairobi. The Lake Nakuru National Park is overflowing with wildlife and not to mention Lake Nakuru itself, the view of which from Babboon is stunning. Tonight we will stay at a beautiful camp site located on a dairy farm on the outskirts of Nakuru Town and depending on what time we arrive we may have the option of a farm visit.

Lake Nakuru National Park
Early the next morning, we left for a day-long safari to the Lake Nakuru National Park. After reaching the gate, you have to wait for some time as all the formalities of getting a ticket and vehicle need to be completed first. As soon as we entered, we were able to spot the early morning prey of a lionness’ kill—the carcass of a slain zebra, right at the entrance! The blood was still fresh and the insides of the zebra’s stomach had been completely devoured by the lion.
On the way to Nakuru, we stopped for a tea break around the Elementaita Lake. There’s a pretty little place here called the Sunbird lodge. After tea, we headed for a short visit to the Menengai Crater, which is quite a natural wonder. It consists of huge land masses bereft of any vegetation and completely hollow in several parts. In recent times, the government has been trying very hard to cultivate it.
