We stayed here with our two children just after the Easter holiday. Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh juices and sat at the bar area which overlooks the water hole. Our rooms were of a very high standard. We had pre booked adjoining rooms. Very clean rooms and a modern bathroom. Hot water was available throughout our stay. The... More

Excellent hotel overlooking a watering hole. Travelled to many places and never seen this before. The staff are very friendly and all have very good english. The only reason for 4/5 stars is when i stayed in 2014 at night time wood beetles or some other kind of beetle kept falling from the ceiling into both drinks and food. Annoying... More

We had a lovely time on our honeymoon. The mangers and staff are very friendly. The rates were reasonable and food was good. The rooms are smallish but air conditioned. Mzima springs and shetani lava make a good visit for any visitors

This place has been overdue a great review for some time. So I am writing one 3 years after being here. This was our first lodge on our trip to Kenya and it set the bar real high for the rest. We landed here in the evening, exhausted after the drive and a lost baggage ordeal. I remember all of... More

Wow. There is a watering hole and just about every room has a view. We enjoyed elephants bathing themselves at all hours. During dinner we had the excitement of watching a leopard stalking a baby giraffe at the watering hole until a waterbuck warned the herd animal off. The water buffalos are there constantly and a ton of zebras come... More

Probably my favourite place we stayed in our 2 week safari. Just loved the view from the restaurant and seating area. Made me just relax and smile sitting there looking out at the waterhole and amazing views. The staff were excellent - especially the man at the pool who was really nice to the kids.
