Loldia House is a hidden gem of the Governor's Camp properties on Lake Naivasha. Surprisingly many do not know of its existence!! It is everything you want and more. The ambience, the hospitality, the food, the everything. I went for my 50th birthday and they made it a memorable one. Apart from the boating and exciting night game drives you... More

After a wonderful if somewhat tiring Christmas hosting family we thought a rest was in order. Loldia House was just what the doctor ordered. My partner who dreams of his rallying days thoroughly enjoyed the rough access road. I maintained my calm by focusing on how the farmland gave way to wilderness – first the tall fever trees, next a... More

Just spent two nights at Loldia House with family and friends. We were 7 adults and a toddler and a baby and overall it was a very relaxing and satisfying break. My family and I were in the main room of the main house which provided fantastic views of Mt Longonot and the lake every morning. The grounds were beautiful... More

Just got back after a great weekend at Loldia House. It's a couple of hours by road from Nairobi. Tucked away off the beaten track, along the shores Lake Naivasha lies Loldia House. It's a private estate spanning approximately 150 sq kms. In my opinion, Loldia House is the definition of serenity and peace. An old Victorian bungalow has been... More

An absolutely enchanting little place by the lake, a few cottages strewn around a charming main house. Superb rooms, but avoid rooms 5 and 6 if possible. The most outstanding food, guaranteed to destroy any diet ! Run with military precision by a charming old martinet The night safaris were a treat Would love to visit again over a weekend

This was my fourth visit to Loldia and it won't be my last! The location is stunning with a beautiful garden overlooking Lake Naivasha. The rooms are comfortably furnished and in some there is a log fire in the evening. Surprising you may think in Africa and not far from the equator but Loldia is about 6000 ft above sea... More

My sister and I stayed here for a second time earlier this month. What can I say, it was an absolute joy. The staff are truly wonderful! Peter looked after us in the cottage, 'his domain', as Heather the manager put it. I mentioned to him on day 2 that our room would work so much better if it was... More

This place is pure luxury! The house itself is an historic site situated in the middle of the great Rift Valley and right on Lake Naivasha. Heather, the dedicated, warm host makes everyone feel at home. Eating dinner together with her and every guest makes you feel like you are in an English manor home at the turn of the... More
