I believe there are two types of visitors to this somewhat understated retreat: those who will leave a little disappointed, and those who will leave wide-eyed and amazed. The former are generally people who have been lucky enough to enjoy other, more luxurious accommodation when on safari elsewhere in Africa, the latter are generally people to whom the luxury of...

Jambo Thank you for finding time to post this review, I am glad to know that generally your stay was enjoyable and memorable. We recently commisioned a Effluent Treatment Plant and at the time did not realize how loud the air blowers would be, otherwise we are on the main power grid. The noise from the blowers is at the...

We were in the farthest rooms from the dining area. It is a long walk so not good if anyone in your party is 'limited'. The rooms were spacious but the bathrooms small and a bit outdated. Again, I am comparing to the Sarova Mara Camp. The food selection was excellent but the desserts were dry (cakes) and the "mousse"... More

We stayed at the lodge for one night mid safari. The Lion Hill had been selected for us by Julius at JT Safaris and our selected room looked out over the lake. It was quite wonderful and on our drives we saw an abundance of animals. This was probably the best location we stayed at for birds The food was... More

This was the largest place we stayed while on safari in Africa. It felt much more cramped and commercial than the others. We could hear people through the walls and the meals were very slow with the backlog of people waiting for things to be served up. It was clean and the staff was great so I can't really complain...

Like others going to Kenya we definetly didnt want to miss out on the famed pink flamingos or the rhinos of Lake Nakuru and therefore spent one night in Lake Nakuru and we were not disappointed. We arrived just before lunch, check in was quick and the first thing that hit us was the spectacular buffet spread, and this continued... More

I did not use the pool but it looked lovely. Although bathroom leaves lot to be desired but overall room is fantastic. Drive to the Lake was lovely... More

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
