Ziwa is a beautiful lodge and the best Nakuru. It is peaceful, relaxing, comfortable and the staff are excellent. It's the small things that set Ziwa apart - the turn-down service including a lovely hot water bottle for the cool nights, very comfortable bed, beautiful styling of the rooms, generous bathroom, plenty of storage and the amazing waterfall shower.

By far the best accommodation we stayed at in Kenya and Tanzania (including beach side resort in Zanzibar). Our only disappointment was that we only stayed one of our two scheduled nights due to a vehicle breakdown. Accommodation is detached bungalows - large with excellent facilities, including wifi. A great bar area as well. The enterprise supports a local orphanage... More

My wife and I searched the internet to locate this property. We wanted to visit Nakuru National Park. The two hotels inside the park seemed a little pricey. My wife started a correspondence with Ben Spinks, (Marketing Director of Ziwa Bush Lodge) and soon we had made our bookings. They sent us a wonderful taxi driver to take us from... More

Everything is done to make your visit most comfortable. Nice amenities, great breakfast, excellent staff, good desk service. Some little special effects such as a hot water bottle under the sheets each night.

The bar was amazing, the local guy walking around singing whilst playing guitar was outstanding. The rooms were wonderful the staff very kind and helpful. The only down side was how they tried to guilt us into donating to the orphanage.

A must go for anyone in need of a quiet getaway. The only noise is the occasional frog outbursts and the chirping birds… if you even categorize that as noise. The cottages are absolutely superb, great service, great food, GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!! There's an orphanage next door ran by the lodge that currently has 250 beautiful children. It's all just...

Our experience there was fantastic! The kids loved their stay there and the food was really good. I particularly loved the 'living in harmony with nature' experience and the simplicity of the food on offer. Keep up the good work!

The hotel is located surrounded by farms. It is wonderful to walk around; it feels like belonging there. The restaurant area is nice and the food is good. The guitarist adds an happy touch to the already warm welcome.

We not only got to enjoy staying in Ziwa's unique Accomodation, we were able to feel good about helping such a worthwhile enterprise as the Orphanage that Ziwa's owners run. Ziwa is located in a quiet area of Nakuru so no problems sleeping. Owner Ben was helpful when contacted for directions and the staff looked after us really well... we... More
