I am not sure how many readers of my review would have seen the film ' a night at the museum' where the stuffed animals in the museum come to life at nighttime and pose a dangerous threat! Well my second stay at the Great Rift Valley Lodge turned into a nightmare of the worst kind the first night of... More

After a very bumpy and long ride along an extremely dusty road, I was slightly skeptical as we turned into the GRVL. Noting it's location away from the lake, I thought to myself, 'this place better be good.' Alas, as it turned out, I was not disappointed... As my visit was work-related, I cannot comment on the golf. However, the... More

I have had the opportunity to stay at the Great Rift Valley Lodge several time. This time though was special - I got a complementary nature walk (am a bird watcher) and branded tee shirt! The staff as usual were very friendly and helpful.

As I write this, I hope the road construction to the lodge is complete. However, once you get there, you wish to stay some more. The green sceneries are well kept and breathtaking views is what welcomes you. The staff are so warm and the cottages are awesome though the network is poor. You probably need to check on internet...

The staff at GRVL are warm, friendly, and made my experience there all the better. Between the a la carte menu and the buffet service, there is a wide variety and you can never get bored. The room are warm and cozy, some admittedly quite a distance from the main reception & dining areas, but there's a van that does... More

The lodge is set in a green reserve, on a hill with breathtaking views over the Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha. You are not so much in theRift Valley as on top of it; in fact in August it was really chilly at times. A stand-out feature are the semi-indigenous gardens which are clearly a work of love and labour.... More

The road from the main road was so bad and dusty. The cottage was well furnished with beautiful view in the evening seeing Zebra grazing outside from my lovely room and well glassed balcony for safety. The shuttle from the cottages to the hotel was wonderful enjoyed the ride from the polite drivers. The pool attendant need to be more... More

The 1st notable aspect of this hotel is how far from the main road it is......it's really far! The road that leads up to it is so bad it tests the shocks of vehicles (even high ones) & makes the journey even longer. The service was quite wanting for a resort of its status and we were inclined to think... More
