This made the small inconveniences..... poor wi-fi connection in the rooms...... unexpected gym charges.... and noisy security personnel irrelevant in the wee hours.... A must return for a quite weekend (hopefully). This trip... More

Got bumped from Enashipai and found this a better value resort for business purposes. Without the extensive facilities of its neighbour, it excelled in terms of service, food and beverage and the wildlife outside bedroom window. A worthy back up.

One night is not enough magnificent grounds with lots of animals wandering around. The lodges are not 5 star but very clean and comfortable the bathrooms are modern.Staff very attentive and friendly, food very good and plenty of it. You can do trips from here especialy the rose nurseries.

This was a one night stay and if we had been longer we would have been bored Although the lodge itself was superb staff attentive food lovely we were disappointed about the lake itself We had read about how great it was being the largest freshwater lake and home to hundreds of birds We couldn't even walk down to waters...

We were travelling from the Masaai Mara through to Amboseli (on a self drive safari) and decided to break our journey in Naivasha. We chose the Simba Lodge and are glad we did. The Lodge is well established with beautiful grounds sitting on the edge of Lake Naivasha (due to the lateness of our arrival and the rainy weather we... More

The setting of this lodge is stunning, you are surrounded by wildlife. The staff were very welcoming & friendly. Our room was fantastic, they are large rooms & when I pulled back the curtains I was amazed to see Zebra & Wild buck wandering quite happily right past our veranda. Our room had the outside shower but unfortunately we didn't... More

The staff at the reception are a llittle snobbish. They couldn't be bothered if you stayed or left and if... More

Nestled amongst acacia Trees, Naivasha Simba lodge epitomizes tranquility. Although the lodge is fenced, buck jump over the fence so every morning and late afternoon you are greeted by their presence. Masai guides willingly take you for guided walks into the park and we came as close to buffalo as one can in the wild. The rooms are spacious and... More
