1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2007

This was just a stop to reduce the travelling between two excellent small luxury tented camps. I must declare it was substantially cheaper but on a value for money scale it was a bad investment. It is the type place that people recruited on the beach stay for an over night safari and then spend the next day viewing game... More

Check-in was smooth, but that’s about where the enjoyment ended… Upon being shown to our room, we were put in a 70’s style concrete block lodge (ridiculous when you consider the price of this place!). There was no double bed although we had requested this (2 singles instead), and the windows had mosquito nets with numerous holes. Also there were... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The game viewing in the immediate area is excellent, with the flamingoes, zebras and baboons being particularly special. We only spent one night here and do not think Nakuru really needs more than two, at the most. The staff here were friendly / helpful and the food was almost uniformly varied and very nice.... More

We stayed at this lodge 1 night in April 2005. The lodge was ok but compared to the Serena hotels it was very ordinary. Rooms were clean but outdated. The restaurant was ok. Great views. Wouldn't stay here again. Lake Nakuru is a nice place but next time will try Mount Kenya instead.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2007

We stayed for 1 night at the Lion Hill Lodge as part of our 7 day Safari with Somak Safari Holidays. We absolutely loved it , and the Games drives and walk on the Salt Licks next to the lake were a fabulous experience. How very sad it is though to see Lake Nakuru dissappearing due to the development of... More

We stayed here also on our safari for one night. The place is set high on the hill and is surrounded with Arcadia trees, overlooking Lake Nukuru. From the hotel you can see all of the pink around the edge of the lake (the flamingos). The setting is beautiful. We were a little spoilt coming from Sarova Mara having spent... More

This lodge is in the park itself and sits tucked on a hill over looking the park and lake. It is phenominal to see pink almost from horizon to horizon knowing that it is hundreds of thousands of flamingos. There are many white rhinos, zebra, antelope, birds, warthogs, baboons and vervet monkeys skampering about the park. The lodge is very... More
