We stayed here while on our "Plains of Africa" tour with Collette Travel. Our room was very basic, a queen bed with a hard mattress, looking out on Lake Nakuru, but our view wasn't very good. Our bathroom had ants & a cricket, but easy to deal with as you are in the bush. What was outstanding was the STAFF!!!... More

The lodge is both simple and beautiful in a perfect setting. Our boys aged 4 and 2 loved wandering around the gardens chasing the numerous beautiful birds. The game drive was also a great experience for us all. The food was very good but the icing on the cake for us was the extra friendly and helpful staff... perfect for... More

December 2013 we stayed at Sarova Mara and loved it so much, this year we chose Sarova Lion Hill Nakuru. A beautiful 3 hour drive from Nairobi, Sarova Lion Hill was not disappointing. The staff are the main attraction. They are warm, welcoming and friendly. The food is exceptional and the whole place is very relaxing. We enjoyed our safaris... More

This was the 3rd stop on our trip to Kenya. After 4 days of spending time in Mara reserve this is the ideal spot to relax. Known for the great white rhino and flamingos at lake nakaru..it is ideal to spend one night here. The food was quiet ok and service was nice. I would recommend this to anyone who... More

However, we checked in for 3 nights and after having a look at our room we were thinking of driving back to nairobi! The rooms are extremely small and very tired looking and dirty.. The bathrooms are bad enough, that we didn't... More

It is advised that one be in the lodge by 7pm since the park closes at 7, however, we were late, got a little lost but the staff really helped with all these. The free wifi, the... More

We stayed 1 night at the end of our safari. It was a very enjoyable stay -- we liked our room/cottage, it was comfortable and clean. Staff were very welcoming, particularly Betty - nothing was too much trouble. Lovely grounds and gardens. Meals were very good - we really enjoyed Simon the singer who was able to sing any song...

We stayed here one night and everything was perfect. It was a peaceful and relaxing oasis in a wonderful game park. The staff was courteous and pleasant. The food was excellent. The accommodations were excellent and we had a great sleep here. We wish that we could have stayed longer.
