This place is a perfect shift from any concrete jungle to a nature park within which the lodge is located. If your looking for a lodge beause you want to stay in the lodge for the whole time of your stay while geting away from the city then don't bother booking a visit, if however you want to experience fresh...

This is an absolutely amazing place. The staff are wonderful, the facilities are amazing, the food superb and we had giraffes and zebras roaming in front of our room before dinner! Anyone travelling to Lake Naivasha would be highly recommended to stay here.

We stayed two nights on safari, but were very disappointed with the hotel. Rooms were extremely spacious, but not well maintained and clean. Very much in need of maintenance and upgrading. The walk to the restaurant was long. Staff were not as friendly as other camps we have stayed at, and although food was good, it was nothing special.

This hotel is relying on its proximity to bird watching spots and night time animal visitors and needs to smarten up. The rooms are grubby, tatty and need a complete overhaul. Food however was fine and service helpful - special mention to Stanley in the restaurant and the security guard who took us to see a hippo in the grounds.... More

This was an amazing hotel. You have the wildlife just outside your door, and can see giraffes, water bucks and hippopotamus walking outside your window. You need to be followed by a security guard at night because of all the animals. This is an adventure in it self. We had the best security guard ever, who took us on 3... More

We went with our kids who loved the experience of having the wildlife animals so close. Got to see Giraffes, Hippos, Zebras amongst others. The lodge is excellent, food is good, and the staff are very helpful. Do go to Lake Naivasha for the boating to see the birds

Excellent location, services and rooms. The cottages look awesome, with a great view of the open land where wild animals come to graze in the evening. There is boat and horse riding facilities. The staff are very friendly, always going out of their way to provide the best service. The food was ok, could be better in terms of variety.

We had a great time at Naivasha Mara. The lodge itself is nestled among great folliage by the lake. We were lucky to have herds of Hippos, zebras and Bucks just outside our room at night. The chef was very helpful in whipping up vegetarian dishes for us. All in all a wonderful experience

We only stayed for one night and there was more to see that we did not have time to explore. We went for a boatride on the lake and a walking safari on Crescent Island. It was a great experience to be able to walk among all those animals. Very exciting to watch the hippos outside our chalet at night!... More

Large well maintained property . lot of animals roaming free on the grounds & great food basically sum up this resort. Staff is courteous & helpful. Stayed for 2 nights & liked the place. Nothing much to do than relax. Boating in the lake and crescent island trip is highly recommended. Rooms are spacious . Overall great stay.
