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

I visited great rift with my family in December 2014 and I must say it was lovely. The chalets are spacious and they have all the basic amenities one needs. There are various activities for the whole family at affordable prices The ambiance is lovely and serene. The only problem is, the pool is rather small And was always crowded.

The hotel is located off-the-beaten track. The grounds are immaculately kept and the staff very friendly. I love the fact that the rooms do not have any TV sets (although you do have free WiFi). It gives you a chance to really enjoy the place and to unwind. There's lots of activities you can enjoy; hiking, excursions, swimming, golf, tennis,... More
