Nairobi, which is the national capital, is situated 85 miles (137 kilometers) southeast of Nakuru.
Discover the interesting attractions in the area. The the Lake Nakuru National Park is a good place to start.
To taste Kenya in all it's variety, drive a little further out to experience the cities, attractions and landscapes around Nakuru. Gilgil, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest, and Naivasha, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the northwest of Nakuru are worth a visit too.
If the weather forecast makes you want to head indoors, visit Kenya's craft workshops.
Visitors who prefer getting off the main tourist trail will enjoy the region's wildlife spotting tours and wildlife safaris.
Local foods are an excellent way to get to know the area you are in. So be sure to spend time in some of the region's restaurants. Potato as well as maize are regularly used in this part of the world. No vacation in Kenya would be finished without experiencing the delights of ugali (cornmeal) and irio (mashed peas and potato mix). To finish your typical local experience, try chilled banana cream. Visitors who never drink alcoholic beverages will want to try Picana (mango juice), a regional favorite.
When the time comes to say farewell to Nakuru, head to the nearest major airport located in Nairobi, 90 miles (145 kilometers) to the southeast.
