The lodge was very cosy with a nature feel to it.. lovely rooms.. food was great.. rooms dont have any tvs or phones hence a perfect get away, wifi not so good either but to top it off the game drive was great with lots of animals. . Pity didn't get to see any lions though. .

We did not stay over at the Lodge, but stopped for lunch during our game drive. Friendly staff who made us feel very welcome from the warm towel and welcome drink at reception, to the head waiter in the dining area. The buffet was plentiful and service excellent. We will definitely return.

The Christmas prices were abit high but competitive! Worth every penny. Cosy rooms... no TV.. which is good and bad at the same time. But there's a lovely bar with a TV. Very close to the main gate and the lake. Overall great place to be!

We stayed here while on our "Plains of Africa" tour with Collette Travel. Our room was very basic, a queen bed with a hard mattress, looking out on Lake Nakuru, but our view wasn't very good. Our bathroom had ants & a cricket, but easy to deal with as you are in the bush. What was outstanding was the STAFF!!!... More
