The threatened lesser kestrel and the Taita falcon both call this reserve their home. Other vulnerable species, namely the African darter, great egret, white-headed vulture, martial eagle and the yellow-billed ox-pecker live here as well.

Famously Lake Nakuru attracts vast numbers of fabulously colored pink flamingos to its shallow waters. Known all over the world for its flamingos, it's alkaline and is harboring a population of over 40 black and over 60 white rhinos, but the flamingos, of course, have always been the main attraction. At times, there may be almost 2 million flamingoes in the residence, forming a stunningly beautiful deep pink band around the edge of the lake shore.
