I was down in Nairobi earlier this weekend with my Wife and my daughter. Planned a weekend gateway to Simba - Naivasha. We had the most amazing time starting from the service since we had a 11 month old baby and the buffets finger licking. Guys in visit to Nairobi must visit or drive to Naivasha and stay in Simba.

We read the good reviews and decided to stop by for lunch on our way back to Nairobi. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing, wild animals wander around and the Lake is visible beyond the water hyacinths. However, we thought the buffet lunch was poor quality for the Ksh 2,000 price per person. They also tried to charge us the... More

Our only regret was that we only booked in for 1 night on our way from Maasai Mara to Amboseli. This hotel is quiet and beautiful, situated in a large garden filled with antelopes with other game over the fence. Its the ideal spot to 'chill' for a couple of days between long drives and a busy schedule. Great rooms,... More

Popped into this hotel for my recent short stay in Kenya, in fact, for lunch. It was awesome. The food is amazing and enjoyed every moment of it. It was worth the drive all the way from Nairobi. The whole environment is tranquil and relaxing. Cannot wait to sleep here in 2014. Loved the setting, within the bushy areas of... More

Our tour company relocated us to to the Simba Lodge from the Sopa Lodge because of the Rally, so my expectations were not high. However, it was on lovely grounds, the staff was great, food just fine & giraffe, water buck & hippo were present & gorgeous. Room lovely, tho we couldn't open the window because of a huge beehive...

My wife and I just returned home from our 11 day safari to Kenya and Tanzania. We stayed at the Simba lodge on our 3rd night and enjoyed every minute of it. It is set on many acres of forest, right on the edge of Lake Naivasha which is in between the Masai Mara and Nairobi. The grounds are beautiful... More

When we drove into this resort right next to Lake Naivasha, we were eager to go for the safari walk . It was touching evening when we reached but the staff obliged us with coffee and tea on the house. The rooms were clean and had a sunken living area and the windows afforded a view of the waterbucks grazing... More

We stayed here for 1 night in September on a weeks safari in Kenya. We were not originally supposed to stay here but our original accommodation was fully booked, but we did not mind at all as this was a lovely place. The rooms are fantastic and had a great little sunken living area, and with view of waterbucks in... More
