Stayed for 2 nights with family on vocation in oct 2014. The resort is really big, the directions to getting there are not very good and the Map given by the Hotel Reservation in Nairobi was not good at all and should be improved. Getting there was a nice welcome drink with a hot towel. We quickly checked in our... More

We only had an overnight stop at this location. but the Hotel manager welcomed us personally and after being shown to our Lodge room; which was excellent, we were surprised at dinner to be led to an outdoor table to take dinner with the Hippos. What an experience !! We had a guide to accompany us to and from our... More

Sadly only had 1 night at this hotel would have liked more time to watch giraffe and zebra from the enormous rooms and didn't get to use the pool. You phone for an escort to dinner because of the danger from wandering hippos after dark. Buffet was not bad, really nice chocolate cake! Disappointed Kuoni told us we had to... More

My last stay at Lake Naivasha Sopa was in 2010. Since that time, they have expanded the dining area with a nice wing to house the buffet stations. That really does help to maintain a quieter level of noise where the guests are sitting. The quality of food here is quite good and there is a good selection of desserts... More

Ordered for food and drinks and waiter brought fruit salad that was different from what is advertised in the menu. It also took more than 20 minutes to get a waiter to attend to us. The chairs/tables at the swimming pool area were not clean.

This resort is incredible. You are welcomed here by very friendly staff with big smiles. The Cottages are very charming and very very roomy. They over look the grass area where at night you can see the Hippos grazing. But don't worry guards escort you at night for safety. The main lounge and bar area is a wonderful place to... More

We went for dinner and weren't expecting the giraffe that crossed the road in the beam of our headlights. What an amazing idea. Pity that it didn't live up to its potential. The dining hall felt rather like a retirement home in a barn, the food wasn't spectacular and the entertainment that was wheeled out was rather depressing. Probably great... More

THERE IS A ZEBRA ON THE LAWN.......to bad i did not have a camera. The old charm leaves you with that rustic feel, almost as if your have walked onto the set of " out of Africa." A truly one in a lifetime sort of experience.

Situated on the shore of lake Naivasha Installed in comfortable cottages surrounding the park of the lodge. During darkness, you will be followed by a guard since hippos, giraf´s, buffalo´s (very aggressive), various antelopes etc are wandering around in the park. At "off" hours you can always ask the guard (for a fair tip) to guide you. Food and service... More

An impressive resort. Nice spacious rooms, with excellent views of the lawn, where zebras, giraffes and waterbucks roam during they day, and are supplemented by grazing hippos at night. Tip: Keep your porch door closed... Lake safari was brilliant with plenty of hippos and birds. Only negative comment would be lack og ventilation in restaurant which causes cooking smells to... More
