We went to Sunbird Lodge after a stop at Kicheche Lakaipia Camp and it was a pleasant surprise. We stayed here tow nights and were in a lodge where my wife and I had a nice king bed downstairs and upstairs our 20+ yr old daughters each had a nice twin bed with a great view of the lake. We... More

I booked via email at a cost that was reasonable to me and also had a booking confirmation. When i went there with family i was told the booking was done erroneously and the pricing was more than doubled. I tried reasoning with them to no avail and the new price they were giving me was way above my budget... More

This is the second time in this truly beautiful and conveniently located venue (2 hours from downtown Nairobi) but certainly not the last. A couple of points though: - in the top row of chalets you will hear the traffic - check the mattress of the bed before you agree to the room (some are sagging) - it really is... More

We went here after a horrid time at sleeping warrior camp, both these places are listed as being at lake Elementaita. Sleeping warrior is a long way from the actual lake and you can barely see it from either the lodge or the camp without binoculars. However sunbird is on the lake edge. There's a price to pay for it... More

I stumbled on Sunbird Lodge online and decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. The Lodge is very well located with great views of Lake Elementaita and the surroundings. The rooms are beautiful, very spacious, spotlessly clean and you actually have a view of the lake even when lying on the bed. All the staff were excellent... More

Once again fabulous stay, great food, lovely cold drinks - thanks Isaac and that awesome view. We did see a spectacular storm which was great to watch from the comfort of our verandah and the hot water bottle when you get into bed is divine at the end of the day!

This lodge had to be one of my favourite. It's less congested, the rooms are exquisite not to mention a great view of the lake. It's prefect for both families and couples alike. The service was remarkable and we got a chance to hike down to the lake with an escort from one of the wardens ( please do not... More

I visited Sunbird for a late lunch (held up in traffic from Nairobi!) and was quite amazed at the location and beauty of the lodge. I only got to the restaurant and the food was very good in both quality and quantity. The service from Caroline was extremely good. The rain in the afternoon did spoil the verandah experience but...

Sunbird Lodge is high on a hill overlooking The lovely Lake Elementaita. The rooms are spacious and clean and comfortable and each one with an impressive view of the lake and beautiful landscape. The staff are friendly and warm and do their best to make your visit as pleasant as possible. We enjoyed our stay there very much.

Staying at Sunbird Lodge offers magnificent views of Lake Elementeita. It is also great for bird lovers! There are three bird feeders next to the restaurant veranda where you can watch them and take photos. There is no access to the lake from the property but there is a small pool. Perhaps the pool should be solar-heated? Hot water is... More
