The only place to be when visit Lake Nakuru. Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge Hotel is definitely the convenient and comfortable place to stay after your game drive around the Lake Nakuru National Park. Built on the hill surrounded by large colony of baboons, the resort come alive in the evening when the guests returned. There were various activities arranged... More

The lodge is small but offers much more than you would imagine. The rooms, the food, the ambience, the service, the entertainment.........everything is great! We were there for just one night and the experience was just so amazing. We were serenaded during dinner and afterwards at the bonfire. Did I mention I woke up to the chirping of birds right...

I don't have enough nice things to say about the Sarova lodges we stayed at. Sarova Lion Hill was our third stop and we stayed for 1 night. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, and well appointed. The staff were attentive and friendly in the extreme. The food was some of the best I've had anywhere. The grounds were beautiful and... More

Stayed here one night while on safari in Lake Nakuru. The lodge was very nice and the food selection was great. We loved the fact that the fact that the power was on 24 hours as a lot of places they turn off power at night. The rooms were great and even provided mosquito netting. Out of all of the... More

Lovely lodge, comfortable rooms, lovely bar area and nightly entertainment. Nicely landscaped grounds and pool area, but pool was chilly. Service with a smile, food was good but massages were great. Safari game drive of Nakuru National Park was awesome. Free wi-fi in the lobby.

We visited Lion Hill last week after many years and were pleasantly surprised that it still had maintained its standards. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the presidential suite and service was excellent. I must say the food was fantastic and we did overeat!! The staff are very helpful and out to please the clients.

The place has awesome ambiance, from the food to the accommodation and to the courteous staff, everything was excellent. The game drives were enjoyable, and we even managed to spot lion footprints! It would've been awesome to see them live, but that gives me more reason to return😉. The view of the sunset is one of the best so far... More

Everything here is superb.Rooms,meals,staff friendly.Recommendable. For all travelers they will find a nice home 🏠 away from home.The ambiance and environment only numerous songbirds.We enjoyed everything here and guests were amazed by the level of competence.The charges are worthy comparing to the services that are offered.For ornithology an ideal location to identify the varieties around.
