Situated a two-hour drive north-west of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, Lake Nakuru is a bird-and-animal-watcher’s haven. The alkaline lake, which is surrounded by the Lake Nakuru National Park, is home to a huge number of bird species and 56 species of mammal, including a healthy population of the highly endangered rhino. Be sure to look into the trees here, too, where tree-climbing lions are often spotted taking an afternoon nap.

The camping overland safaris are generally popular with groups of young travellers, in search of an exciting and social journey into Africa’s wilderness areas.
