Lake Nakuru National Park is a fantastic park. If you're looking to see a lot in a short space of time, this is the place to go. Both black and white rhino, good place for leopard spotting, lots of bird life and of course Lion, lots and lots of Buffalo and flamingo. The lake itself is worth seeing, especially the view from Baboon cliffs at sunset.
There are a number of campsites here but the one I would recommend is Makalia, at the falls. Two nights would be the maximum time I would recommend staying there. 

Following on from this is a good drive to Lake Baringo, via Lake Bogoria (famous for its natural hot springs) crossing the equator. It is definitely worth stopping at the equator for a quick talk about the change of water direction north and south of the equator, and a small money gift or buying a curio or two is always appreciated.

Baringo is an ideal place for a relaxing few days and some beautiful walks on the cliffs (you can arrange a guide at the reception at Roberts camp - brilliant if you're a bird viewer as they know anything and everything about birds!).

And that is a few tips from my many travels around that route (and it never gets boring!)
