This place is a gem. It is small and peaceful, with attentive service. You feel as if you are a guest at someone's private house. Drinks and evening meals together add to that feeling. The House has a lovely view across gardens to Lake Naivasha. There are rooms in the main house, and detached bungalows as well. The staff are... More

7 friends and I had a really pleasant weekend at this house. We really enjoyed the beautiful setting, the lounge and terrace, dog and views. The lodge is just an old house, albeit very quaint and interesting, in the traditional old colonial house style here in Kenya (i.e. big sofas, roaring fires, photos of animals bring hunted, beautiful flowers in...

We visited the Loldia house with our 2 kids and my parents. The place is amazing. The maximum capacity of the lodge is 18 guests and at the time of arrival we were the only ones. It was like being at home surrounded by a beatiful lake and wild animals. The hospitality and service provided by Heather and her staff... More

Great place if you want to get away from it all. With regards to it not being a safari place, I believe it doesn't advertise it as a safari destination. So to the previous review sorry it did not meet your expectations. But this place nice and quiet and on the lake. Food was good and fresh but not outstanding.... More

If your idea of an African safari includes an old English style house surrounded my grass then this is the place for you. Keep in mind that to get to this house you must travel an hour down the world’s must bumpy road. They are in the process of paving it so it might be done in 2 or 3... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights en route to the Masai Mara. Beautiful setting, great food and 5 star plus service from Heather and her team. Guide Samuel was brilliant and very eager to ensure that we got the most from our stay. We drove in from Nairobi and flew out to the Masai Mara, the road out is... More

Loldia House was our first stop on our first trip to Kenya last week. And, boy, did it set the bar high. From the service, to the camaraderie, to the sense of history, Loldia House is a well oiled, welcoming ship and spoiled us for sure. You arrive at Loldia House either by air or by road. The road in... More

Many thanks to Heather and all of the team at Loldia House for such a fantastic introduction to Kenya. The service was impeccable, the food fabulous and the game drives excellent. It is worth mentioning that our driver was incredibly informative and went above and beyond to ensure we made the most of our time in Lake Naivasha. If you... More

We included this house in our safari as our one departure from the tent-oriented camps that are the stsndard. What a great decision on our part! The house is lovely, as is the setting right on the lake. Exceptional as well is the hostess, Heather, who is charming & extremely capable, making sure the service is top notch. Go here!
