To get the best view that takes in much of the park, visitors should head up to the rocky Out of Africa Lookout. The incline is steep, but it offers sweeping views out over the lake and will bring back fond memories for fans of the movie. Two other lookout points are Lion Hill and Baboon Cliff.

Lake Nakuru National Park has very well-established roads that make most parts of it accessible by 2-wheel-drive vehicles. Some less-traveled parts and most viewpoint hills require 4-wheel-drive vehicles.
