If you are looking for serene location in Naivasha, is should be none other than the Great Rift Valley Lodge. With the beautiful scenery of the great Rift and Lake Naivasha, classy cottages and Villas, amazing food, and friendly staff, Great Rift Valley is the place to visit.

Great Rift Valley Lodge is a GREAT place to be, for business, they have perfect conference rooms and the package is fairly good. If leisure, it is a quiet place and it is not a 'home away from home' experience, it is beyond that! for sports lovers, there is a golf course, lawn tennis and swimming. If holidaying with family,...

Everything was fine at this lodge but nothing great. In fact, on our entire 29-day trip to Africa (South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya), this was the worst food and the worst service. The food wasn't really bad, just average. However, the food elsewhere was so good and this was not in the same category. We were at the lodge for... More

Was there this past weekend on some work related retreat. The service is second to none I have ever experienced, from the reception to the ushering at the restaurant was great. The rooms are cosy and serene and the balcony overlooks the beautiful scenery of the rift valley. The tennis court and volley ball court are world class and totally... More

The resort has several cabin type rooms located high over the Rift Valley. The rooms were spectacular with outdoor decks overlooking the valley. Our room had a sitting area with fireplace, a large bathroom and mosquito-screened bed facing the view. This is a wonderful choice.

We have been to a many of hotels and lodges all over Kenya and we kind of know what to expect when we arrive...the usual warm or cool towels with a nice drink, however when we arrived here we got ignored for about 5 minutes...not a good start. There was one woman on the phone, shouting, and three people hidden... More

Generally a very good place to stay though sometimes the satellite TV service is off/unpaid for. Please improve on the telephone & Wi-Fi connectivity. The road from Naivasha, needs refurbishment urgently.

Beautiful location. Not on lake Naivasha, but within nice hills 30 minutes away from the lake. The dirt road to get there is terrible. Nice individual houses hosting the rooms. Friendly staff. Trouble starts here: the rooms are run down, badly maintained, and very poorly protected from noise. Noise, you will say, what noise? Well, unfortunately the noise of the... More
