My daughter and I were on a private safari, first time in Africa. We saw lots of animals (water buffalo, gazelles, zebras, baboons, camels(!), and many birds, including flamingos, white pelicans, maribou cranes, superb starlings. Rooms were delightful and overlooked the Great Rift valley.

Beautiful course. We had a great time on the course especially the 17th hole. The views from hotel overlooking the lake was awesome. The cottages were okay, had problems with power and staff took their time to respond to call regarding setting up BBQ.

The Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort is in its own class! I love the fact that the environment is planted within nature. The environment is extremely beautiful, and the staff is quite welcoming and organised. The rooms are well kept and the restaurant is classic! I just love my experience of this facility!

The property is wonderful, gives you an experience to remember for a long time. The rooms are excellent, the cottages magnificent, the scenery a site to behold. The service was good and the food was yummy.Definitely the best hotel in Naivasha.

The property and location is awesome...huge, which brings its own challenge. Rooms are far with poor transportation...Rooms design doesn't give you much of privacy. What also inconvenienced us was that entry of the rooms is not from road side but from behind and noise proofing not good. resort itself is nice with staff courteous.

Dear Guest, We have taken note of the above comment. It is unfortunate that being in a group occupying several chalets, the keys to one whose cleaning was not complete was still on course was included, hence the predicament. Our mode of operation is for the chalet to be declared clean and ready before access is given. We apologize for... More

I was among a large group when we visited, and we had a lot of fun! First and foremost the Lodge is on very beautiful grounds, in the bushes, where they strive to maintain the wilderness feel. Even though you will have to endure about 11KM of a dusty rough road from the main road to the destination, it will... More
