An all-round good experience. We had three nights at Sunbird and it offered everything that we needed including free wifi in the bar area. The only improvement would be the signage at the roadside turn-off. The current sign is set back from the road and at night is near-invisible. We reached the lodge after dark and if one of our...

During our honeymoon, we stayed at Sunbird Lodge 1 night between our visit to Amboseli Park and the Mara Reserve. The lodge is located on top of a hill and the view at Lake Elementaita from the rooms is amazing and the distance between the cabins allows peace and privacy. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, it had a... More

Stayed at this beautiful place for 3 nights in late July, our room "Hornbill" is located on the top level corner cottage, making it the perfect location for stargazing and photography. The room is clean and comfortable, with unique Kenyan patterned cloth decorations and full amenities plus hairdryer, 24hr-hot water supply, spacious veranda, great view, lots and lots of beautiful...

We came with our five month old grandson and his parents - delighted to see the place as well maintained as before - the cottages in excellent condition and the splendid hot water showers. My daughter was able to negotiate the many steps down to our cottages pretty well, carrying her baby - but people should be warned that at... More

We went to Sunbird lodge after 6 hrs drive from Porini Amboseli Camps and having a boat ride in Lake Naivasha. We were expecting accommodation similar to what we saw at Lake Naivasha. But, when we reached Sunbird lodge, we were stunned by the location of the reception area and rooms. We were overseeing Lake Elementaita, Green Surrounding, birds chirping... More

We didn't had much expectations before reaching the place. But when we reached, we were just stunned by the place. This resort is placed within a very beautiful surrounding. Greenery all around, views of Lake Elementaita on sunsets were just amazing. The bird life is excellent. Issac, the resort manager was very co-operative and made our stay very comfortable. The...

It really is a top class lodge and I recommend you try to stay there a few... More

This place is so beautiful that it is such a shame the flamingoes dont come anymore. The staff were lovely and helpful and I appreciated that they let me change around the dinner options so I could order what I really felt like. The food was great, both dinner and breakfast. We only stayed 1 night but it was a... More
