I stayed here two years ago leading a group. The same wonderful staff were still gracing us with their warm, welcoming smiles. This hotel is right in the Park, so it's the perfect location. The food is great, the turn down service it great. It rains every time I have been here, but only for a bit, and my groups... More

This was a wonderful stop on my Kenya experience. The hotel facility itself was quite nice. The rooms were nice, complete with insect netting. My beverage warmer didn't work, but that was a small deal. The staff was wonderful! Very friendly and helpful. The outdoor lounge area was very nice, and a musical dance performance there was fun. The dining... More

Sarova Lion Hill Game Reserve sits comfortably nestled along the shores of Lake Nakuru. It is approximately half an hour's drive from the bustling colonial transit town that is Nakuru, which is about 150 kms east of Nairobi approximately two and half hours drive. The game reserve is located inside the Nakuru National Park. This means and that you will... More

a gem hidden in the Lake Nakuru National Park - with Amazing views on the lake from the hill - lodge is very well maintained - everyone was enthousiast and friendly - food is ok (although not superb) - the daily dance show was a bit unnecessary for us. We were there in the low season so not to many... More

We stayed at Sarova overnight on our way to Mara. Before we checked in, we went on a safari and saw 4 lionesses with 10 cubs feeding on a warthog on the road. We also saw rhino, and many other big and small animals. Service at the lodge was topnotch, as well as the rooms. Their electricity is on 24... More

We stayed for 2 days. the rooms are big , well maintained and surrounded by gardens with a view of Lake Nakura. Being within the park, the game drive starts immediate. We not only saw a pride of lions along with cubs , but also witnessed a hunt ! The Rhinos were adorable, along with zebras, griaffe, etc Disappointed not... More

The villas are very nice and the surroundings are perfect. The staff is always smiling and very helpful. I like the food very much. Great variety and very well cooked. But if you know that some company will holding there a big meeting, avoid s place. A telecommunications company had its meeting there and there was a party with disco... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sarova Lion Hill game lodge inside the Lakuru National Park. This is a wonderful western oasis in the midst of the park. The room was very nice and comfortable. The lodge we had only a shower, but it had great water pressure and was awesome! The live entertainment was really cool! The restaurant... More

We had initially wanted to stay here but it was fully booked so we opted for another hotel . We therefore came over for lunch after a drive through the park. The Lake Nakuru park is one of the few parks where the animals are very easy to spot and therefore it makes sense to stop over for lunch after... More

I gave this an average because I don't want to mislead people looking for luxury accommodations. These are not. However, there are nice touches - like chairs out front so you can take in the beautiful sunrise or sunset, or a handy hot water bottle placed in bed in the evenings (a welcome surprise!). The rooms are clean and good... More
