Mammals at Lake Nakuru
Waterbuck (female). See the section on Masai Mara for the male
A Grass (white) rhinocerous with a common Zebra and the next picture is of a mother with the baby Rhino. The Rhinos are one of the big 5 and extremely dangerous. Our tally of the big 5 is now 3. We do see a couple of lazy sleeping lions later, but decided to get a better view of them at Masai Mara to count them in.
It is now dusk and time to bid goodbye to the wild & check into The Lake Nakuru Lodge situated inside the National Park. A comfortable resort with good facilities and service though a little too touristic and missing the really natural ambience of the Samburu Sopa Lodge. We were aksed to keep our rooms tightly shut as the Baboons might invade us. Pity, we did not stay long enough for the thrill!
