One night for 2 days of safari on the way to Masai Mara. Nothing to fault to the lodge, excellent location, service and facilities. We had a suite and it was awesome, nice separate living room, spacious and comfortable bed, nice bathroom with both shower and bath. Constant supply of hot water, which is not always a given on a...

Our experience was one of a kind; a compliment from Sarova shaba in Isiolo. The staff especially Lucy at the resturant had the best warmth of welcome. The rooms were good enough for my family and we felt at home. The location made game drives the best experience of the 2 days. Complimentary fruits and tea was a plus. A... More

The positive surprise of this outing was the lodge. Excellent experience across all matters...warm check in, superb food with wide variety and choice at all times, very spacious and well appointed rooms and to top this off excellent and customer focused service and staff. A real pleasant experience. What prevents a 5 star rating is the state of game in... More

This lodge is so beautiful and you can't ask for a better setting. The rooms are on a hill overlooking Lake Nakuru. The service was outstanding and the restaurant food was quite good. While the setting and service was incredible, the rooms are a bit small. That said, since we didn't spend much time in the room it was not... More

This was my second visit to Sarova Lion Hill, I was first there in 2013. Our first visit was one night only, this time we spent 2 nights. This gave us more time to appreciate the experience, and enjoy what Nakuru park offers. The entire visit was very memorable.

Spent a couple of nights here in August 2015, visiting the Nakuru national park. Lake Bogoria is 3 hours away by car and is also worth the visit, btw. The lodge has relatively large capacity (over 50 bungalows), and decent amenities, including a swimming pool, bar, and a restaurant that served lunch, dinner and breakfast under a buffet scheme. Quality... More

Great lodge with awesome views of Lake Nakuru from every part of the lodge. The food was the best food we had of the 3 we stayed at for our safari. Really enjoyed the park as well - great for game viewing. We saw a leopard, white rhino, black rhino among other animals. Loved this lodge!

A very nice property in the Lake Nakuru park. The rooms were tastefully decorated, the bed comfortable. Finding a hot water bottle in the bed on a cold night was a lovely treat. The dining room is spacious and comfortable, the food was the best we had in Kenya, with a great choice for carnivores and vegetarians alike.

Beautiful location with the most lovely yellow weaver birds with the most unusual woven round nests. Hotel staff was welcoming, friendly and so helpful. Massage was outstanding and conducted in a tent where you could relax and listen to the birds singing and chirping! Restaurant staff was so interactive and food was delicious.
