I really really wanted to like this lodge, but for the price, I just can't justify giving it a good rating. The grounds are absolutely lovely and I really enjoyed spending mornings walking around the property and beyond among giraffes, zebras, and waterbuck. However, everything else was very mediocre for the price the lodge charges. Rooms were okay, but beds... More

We arrived late for lunch but, nevertheless, the hotel made no problem at all to let us lunch - the buffet is excellent. The rooms are really beautiful with a view on the garden where zebra's, impala's and other are peacefully grazing. As it was low season, there were not so many guests in the hotel and this made the... More

Recently spent a week at Simba Lodge while participating in a training event. The lodge is quite and all rooms have spectacular views of the acacia trees with zebra and waterbuck wandering around. You can walk down to the edge of Lake Naivasha easily, though due to wandering buffalo and hippos taking a guide is recommended (this has no charge... More

I have always loved Simba lodge for the homely atmosphere it gives , the lush grounds and the animals that stray not too far from the room. I first visited the hotel almost 8 years ago and it has maintained the standards , the only sad thing is the rising water levels have made it almost impossible to walk to... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night, we hadn't made reservations and were glad to walk in and get a room. We had tired and hungry kids so despite the high price of kes 19000 per night, we had no choice. we had very high hopes in the quality of our stay. The rooms are clean, not so spacious, the... More

Stayed for one night at the hotel. The garden was well manicured and green looking very beautiful. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The walk to lake Naivasha, which is a few meters from the hotel was amazing; the hotel provided a hotel staff familiar with the sorroundings to walk with us to the lake at no cost! The room... More

Went with a group of friends. we were all coupling. the rooms are big but all have a second single bed, but you cannot have an extra guest. this simply wastres space in the room ... it would be easier if you just had a large room and 1 bed. the extra bed made the room feel so crowded. this...
