Overall I had a very good experience at this lodge. As plenty of other people have mentioned, the views are fantastic, the food is very good, and the ambiance is nice, but what stood out to me the most is how fantastic the staff was. Most of them remembered my name from first check-in and made a point to ask... More

We spent two nights at Lion Hill Lodge & really enjoyed the personal service. The rooms are very spacious & the food is delicious. The Ginger sponge pudding was our favourite! Dinner was relaxed with pre dinner local dancers & dowas ( local drink) & a guitarist happy to play our requests. The game drives are fantastic. We saw lions... More

This place is OK. The rooms are nothing special but they serve their purpose. Food was good. Grounds nice. My only complaint is that the night we were there there was a team-building group and they were extremely loud with their music. I went to complain at front desk and they brushed me off. It was not a relaxing place... More

The Sarova Lion Lodge is a lovely clean hotel located in the National park. We were greeted with lovely welcome drinks and friendly and attentive staff. The rooms were clean and nice, based in individual hut like buildings. In the evening before dinner they put on a dancing and singing performance which breaks up the day. The buffet selection is...

We are Kenyan residents traveling across subsaharian Africa since many years. In Kenya we found an exellent safari destination in Lake Nakuru N.P./ Lion Hill Lodge. Safari newcomers will like it as well as insiders.Only one hour distance from Nairobi you will find the Big Fife (except elephants) and a Lodge not luxurious but authentic with fair rates.
