At the height of 1,754 meters above sea level, this is one of the Rift Valley’s soda lakes, surrounded by Nakuru National Park. The number of algae in Lake Nakuru used to bring many flamingos to the beach, which created an incredible landscape.
You really must see Nakuru’s largest mall. It is a one-stop shop in the region, including stores, restaurants, banks, and even the Aga Khan hospital, located at the junction of the Nairobi-Nakuru highway and Kenyatta Avenue.
On the northern side of Nakuru, Menengai is the single most giant remaining volcano. This extinct volcano provides a spectacular perspective of Lake Nakuru and Lake Bogoria. Menengai is thought to have been a battlefield between Maasai clans.
It was constructed by Lord Egerton in 1938 for his bride-to-be after she stated that the 6-bedroom palace he resided in was small. It is also known as the “Castle of Love.” He never married, never desired to see a woman, and banned women from entering his household. Lord Egerton lived in isolation for the rest of his life until he died in 1958.
Lord Egerton Castle is now a top destination for lovers, weddings, and picnics. It is unquestionably a location worth seeing.
Many flamingos visit Lake Elementaita, while zebra, gazelle, eland, and warthog families feed on its banks. Long hikes and bird viewing are ideal at the lake and its surrounding trees. It is protected because of its birdlife, and UNESCO has designated it as one of the world’s heritage sites, alongside Lake Nakuru and Lake Bogoria.
This archaeological site is one of the oldest sites in East Africa to be discovered. The campsite, nature path, big church tower, and bird viewing are popular features of the place.
