Facility Notes Lake Nakuru Lodge is located in Lake Nakuru National Park and sits on approximately 30 acres of land leased from KWS. The camp is specifically located on Global Positioning System (GPS) Coordinates, Latitude -0.4231659 and Longitude 36.1300894. The facility has a bed capacity of 188 with 95 tents and a staff of 118.
The lodge overlooks Lake Nakuru, which is surrounded by various types of wetlands ranging from mud-flats to sedge marshes. With no outlet except through evapo-transpiration, dissolved salts from the volcanic soils turn the river waters into a saline lake. The alkaline water conditions stimulate exponential growth and bloom of the blue green algae, as well as proliferation of specialized crustaceans, fish and amphibians in the lake. The algae blooms attract millions of lesser flamingo, which feed only on blue green algae. The fish and crustaceans provide food to Greater flamingo in addition to a wide variety of storks, egrets, ducks, kingfishers, sandpipers, stilts, avocets and plovers. Lake Nakuru National Park is a world-renowned birds’ paradise with over 500 species recorded. In 2011, Lakes Nakuru, Elmenteita and Bogoria were designated as World Heritage Sites under UNESCO. Although completely fenced, the Park has large populations of the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, waterbuck, buffalo, gazelles and impala. It also has viable populations of the large predators, namely: lion, leopard, hyena, and cheetah. Besides, Lake Nakuru is also a designated site under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international importance.
