Kenya’s Lake Nakuru has been named second most beautiful spot across the globe by the world’s reputable scientific and educational institution, the National Geographic.
The lake inside Nakuru national park in a review released by National Geographic on Thursday November 19, 2015 was listed after Christmas Island in Australia where visitors get to see the annual migration of crimson red crabs.
“In the heart of the Kenyan Great Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru hosts one of the greatest bird spectacles on the planet as hundreds of thousands of greater and lesser pink flamingos flock, in blankets of pink, to the water’s edge to feed on the lake’s algae”, National geographic said.
Other beautiful spots across the world that made it to the top ten include Mallory Square, Key West, Florida; The Lubéron, France; Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada; Erg Chebbi Dunes, Morocco; Grand Prismatic Spring, Wyoming; Caño Cristales, Colombia; Hitsujiyama Park, Japan and Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland.
This review is likely to improve Kenya’s global image, especially its tourism sector that has been battered by reports of widespread insecurity due to terrorist attacks.
