Lake Nakuru National Park is situated approximately 164 kilometres from Nairobi, a two hours drive from Nairobi city.

The area around the lake is exclusively used for wildlife conservation while the land in the catchment area is intensively used for agriculture, forestry and ranching. The lake was established as a National Park in 1961.

The park was declared a rhino sanctuary in 1983.
