We were a family of 2 adults and 1 child coming after a 6 hour long drive from Sarova Mara to Sarova Lion hill and reached at 1:30 pm. We were told that the rooms are not ready . We were tired and had our lunch and came back to the reception at 3pm and still the rooms were not... More

We visited the park and stayed April 18. Check in and out services are very good with professional staff. Rooms are comfortable with adequate space. King sized bed was comfortable. Lunch, dinner and breakfast in the restaurant were just too good. Superior food! Very easy to over eat with the delicious selections. On a quiet night you can hear the... More

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.

Just got back on Sunday. We spent two nights there, my wife and two kids, parents, two brothers & their wives & kids, so, a big gang. We had a splendid first day, lunch was excellent, soups are really really good. Staff are very hospitable. My brother experienced a numerous amount of bugs & mosquitos the first night. We complained... More

Lake Nakuru is an excellent place to stop on a safari, and this hotel is right near it. The rooms are all separate huts, so you have lots of privacy. They are nice and clean, though not very luxurious. On an African safari though, who needs excessive luxury? The scenery and the entire experience make up for it. We got... More

This lodge has a great setting - landscaped gardens with running streams and ponds - a bird lover's delight. Staff service was excellent as was the quality of the generous buffet meals cooked by a chef. Pepper steak and grilled lamb chops were scrumptious. Rooms were large, spacious and all with 24/7 wifi and power. The views over Lake Nakuru... More

We stayed for a night before we set out to Masai mara. Just a few min drive from Lake Nakuru and closer to the Nakuru town. The stay was really comfortable - the beds & bathrooms were good. The ambiance around was wonderful, mornings welcomed by chirping of birds and freshness in the air. The food was good the staff... More

I stayed at Sarova Lion Hill Park Lodge from the 20th - 23rd March. The hotel is inside Lake Nakuru National Park. We arrived quite late in the evening after work and yet the welcoming faces at reception were still smiling and fresh. We were offered a delicious (real) mango juice as we stepped out of the car as well... More

I was here with my husband and some friends over the past weekend. The hotel is well hid in the park and on your way you get to see zebras, buffalos, monkeys, baboons and lots of birds. The staff were great esp Patrick and Angela who went out of their way to ensure that we were well taken care of.... More
