At least over 25 eastern black rhinoceros and about 70 southern white rhinos, a number of Rothschild giraffes, two waterbuck Kenya species, East African lions, cheetahs and leopards. The park also has large pythons that dwell in dense forest and can often be seen across the road or dangling from the trees.

In addition to flamingos, the lake is also home to African fish eagle, Goliath heron, hamerkop, pied kingfisher and Verreaux's eagle. Lake Nakuru is one of Rift Valley soda lakes with an altitude of 1754 meters in the Kenyan cliff valley. The abundance of algae has attracted a large number of famous pink flamingos lining the shore, often over two million.

Algae and plankton are abundant and thrive in warm waters and get the nutrients from flamingo impurities. Usually the lake receded during the dry season and flood in the rainy season, but in recent years there has been an increasingly widespread variation.

The lake's water level dropped dramatically in the early 1990s, but soon recovered and in 2013 saw an alarming rise in water levels that caused flamingo migration to Bogoria Lake to search for new food supplies.

Lake Nakuru is an attraction for migratory birds coming from Europe during the winter. Small fish Alcolapia grahami has evolved after its introduction in the early 1960s. The lake is rich in other bird life and more than 400 species in the surrounding park including Grebes, white winged black terns, stilts, avocets, and ducks.
