Start early for a game drive to look for white rhino and other mammals.  Nakuru used to be home to thousands of pink flamingos but due to high rainfall in the last 3 years, which has increased the depth of the water, they are now few and far between.  However, there are about 400 other species of birds visiting the lake.  Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant before driving back to Nairobi

Tour ends – transfer to airport - return home or onward travel.
