About Menengai crater & Lake Nakuru National Park
Menengai Crater is one of Kenya's most intriguing destinations with spectacular scenery; it is surrounded by lush forest protected by the Kenya Forest Service. The crater is believed to be the second largest caldera in the world at 90 km2 and almost 2500 m above sea level.

Lake Nakuru National Park is home to a huge numbers of native African animals including waterbucks, warthogs, impalas, buffalo, Rothschild giraffes, elands, endangered black rhinos, white rhinos and, occasionally, leopards. A large herd of hippos have a territory in the northern part of the lake, making for interesting game viewing. The park is also renowned as a bird sanctuary with over 400 bird species.

During the trip, we will enjoy hiking in the beautiful nature trails of Menengai Crater, and explore Lake Nakuru National park; visit the Makalia Falls, Hippo Pools, Baboon cliff, the lookout point which offers the finest view across the lake.
