Lake Nakuru National Park lies in Great Rift Valley a distance of about 140 Km from the Kenya Capital, Nairobi. Nakuru National Park is an Important Birding area (IBA) due to its large concentration of Pink Flamingoes. This ecosystem supports other species of birds, mammals such as the lions, Buffaloes, leopards, waterbucks and white rhinos. The park also protects the largest euphorbia candelabrum forest in Africa. These tall branching succulents are endemic to the region and provide an interesting textural element to the arid landscapes.
