This was Lodge 2 of 3 on our safari for our honeymoon! The room was huge, it had a little seating area with a TV, a large bed (which had flower petals in the shape of a heart for our honeymoon) and it even had an outdoor shower! We were only here for one evening, and the food was also... More

In fairness we only stayed here for 1 night and was unable to fully explore the gardens, facilities and regular meals. That said we arrived and were shown to our room which was very big and well furnished. The villa looks out on the gardens and lake and you can see wildlife grazing just a few yards away. We had...

Absolutely lovely hotel, staff and setting. Just one grumble, the food seems to be the same stuff in various formats all the time and if you don't get there early is often cold. :o(

The Simba Lodge at Lake Naivasha is a hidden treasure. Is is beautiful and relaxing and the service is wonderful. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to attend to your every need. The hotel is a short walk from the lake and one can spot amazing animals on the walk, including giraffe, zebra and hippos.... More

I stayed here for 1 night with my family during our african safari in kenya.We reached the lodge at 3.30 pm. We had not had our lunch and the lunch buffet was closed( our stay here was on full board). The hotel staff were kind enough to organise an a la carte lunch for us. The rooms were very good... More

I stayed with my husband at the end of Feb2011. We were in Nairobi for work and wanted to get away for the weekend and we really had a great time. The lodge is beautiful and there is plenty of buck roaming free in the property, so this makes for a very special setting. The rooms are very good size... More

Typical of the Kenyan culture, the level of service received was exceptional, and always with a smile. The facilities were clean and tidy and most people went out of your way to assist you. Such a pleasurable environment to stay in. Sadly, I believe that the prices charged certainly do not match the facilities. Although the price included Dinner, Bed... More

This is a relatively new chain hotel with two-storey chalet blocks, set in pleasant grounds, fronting a large grassy acacia plantation grazed by a largish herd of domesticated but atmospheric Waterbuck. This place is so quiet and delightful that it’s a shame that most people staying there see it as no more than a convenient one-night stopover en route either... More
