We only stayed here 1 night but the accommodations were very, very nice. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival with cool wet towels with the scent of eucalyptus and local fresh juices. We were then greeted by the manager who told us all about the amenities of the facility and then shown to our cabins. We each had a porter... More

We stayed in several places during our safari but this one was the best. Everything was prepared when we arrived. Our room had a lovely bay window with a built-in couch perfect for reading and relaxing. Unique was the birdfeeder with a 'birds luncheon' where you could closely watch all the different bird species arriving for snacks. The kitchen here... More

Stayed there for one night, feels like a resort rather than a game lodge. The triple room is very small no space to walk around. The birds on-site are very good and the staff is very hospitable. There was no hot water and they charge for WIFI.

It seems the Sarova lodges are all such excellent places. This one was not exception. One has a view of Lake Nakuru. The individual "cabins" are well-appointed. The dining is sumptuous. Service at this place is just superb. Just be careful with the monkeys which may enter your room as you get in. They are a wily bunch.

When planning our safari vacation, we decided to come to Lake Nukuru since we had a long drive and knew we would need a stop off. The lodge is centrally located as someone else said so it does make going on the drives easier however the lodge is just average. It wasn't by any means bad but after staying at... More

My husband and I stayed at Sarova Lion Hill Lodge for one night and we enjoyed our stay. It was a great way to end a 1000 km long road trip.

We were fortunate to enjoy our first Safari experience here in July. Centrally located within the park, it gave us the perfect base for our daily adventures. From the time we arrived until departure, we were treated to excellent food and 5 star service.

We stayed at the Sarova Lion Hill Lodge one night during our visit to Kenya and I was glad it was only for one night. We were traveling as a family of 5 with a private guide. The lodge was over run with large tour groups which is good for the lodge but not for individual travelers. You tend to... More
