I spent a day and a night in this hotel, back in March. Went there to show the Park to some colleagues, after a meeting. It was my first time in this hotel and I was not disappointed with the Sarova quality of service. The design and blending of the constructions with the surrounding vegetation is of very good taste.The... More

We didn't want to miss Lake Nakuru on our trip, so we spent one night here on route to Samburu. The lodge is very clean. The dining is buffet-style and it is very family friendly. Fun dinner pre-show with singing and dancing and audience participation. Our trip to Kenya was a 30th anniversary trip and our tour operator had notified... More

Clean rooms, Comfortable beds, 30minute cultural entertainment most nights before dinner, large log fire on the terrace outside the bar. Food is really excellent with great choice from starters - salad through to fresh cooked dishes and superb desserts. This place is often full with weekend visitors from Nairobi so best to book early. This is BEST lodge in the... More

On entering the Lake Nakuru Natural Reserve, we were surrounded by nature in all its glory! Baboons running across the road, Bucks grazing, birds chirping… The uppermost thought in my mind….. ‘Am i really living in a concrete jungle with artificial ski slopes and the largest mall in the world? Can that compare to this natural beauty?” For those of... More

Somewhat of a dubious distinction, but since my travel partner is from Mombasa, she was really looking forward to some nice showers during our safari week. Of the 5 places we stayed at for the week, this was one of the best showers. The room was nice enough, grounds were nice. The restaurant felt "cafeteriaish" with the food lighting, but... More

We recently stayed at the Sarova Lodge while visiting Lake Nakuru as one stop on our trip to Kenya. We really enjoyed this lodge. It is incredibly beautiful and really a relaxing, calm way to recharge after busy days traveling and visiting the game park. We were greeted with great hospitality and enjoyed the staff of the lodge. The food... More
