Presentation

We recommand our members to discover the Lake Nakuru National Park when they travel to Kenya. It's a great opportunity to discover the beauty of nature in Kenya.

The Lake Nakuru National Park (188 km2), was created in 1961 around Lake Nakuru, near Nakuru Town. It is best known for its thousands, sometimes millions of flamingos nesting along the shores. The surface of the shallow lake is often hardly recognizable due to the continually shifting mass of pink.

Adventurers should hop on a camel back for any trip through the golden Sahara sand dunes at Erg Chebbi, near Merzouga. Spend the night in a desert tent, under the incredibly starred sky. The Sahara is also accessible near the town of Zagora; it's easier to get to from Marrakech but doesn't have the imposing dunes of Erg Chebbi.
