A leisurely and picturesque 2-hr drive from Kenya’s bustling capital will bring guests to Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge in Lake Nakuru National Park. The vast watery expanse after which the park is named attracts millions of flamingos every year—turning its surface into a fuchsia hue. The lodge boasts magnificent views of the park and lake and offers an array of wildlife-viewing options to entertain all types of travellers.
Apart from the bow-legged flamingo, the park is also home to the rare Rothschild’s giraffe, as well as black and white rhino. The park’s acacia and euphorbia forests hide an array of other bird species, giving Lake Nakuru a reputation as one of the most densely populated protected wetlands in the country. Other wildlife found in the area includes hippo, leopard, lion, buffalo, and eland.
Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge’s rooms all have en-suite bathrooms and balconies. Guests can lounge and enjoy sundowners at Mama Nikki or Rhino Paddock Cocktail Bar while simultaneously enjoying evening entertainment and magnificent views of the lake. Spend your days picnicking by a hippo pool or enjoying horseback, vehicle, and walking safaris.
