A lovely lodge close to Lake Elementaita, with very cosy rooms, great scenic views, very peaceful & excellent service. Rooms are spacious, with an indoor & outdoor shower! We were serviced excellent food throughout our stay, and the Chef got every special request right. We had absolutely no problems as Vegetarians. Staff are very friendly - Mildred, Martha, Samuel, Michael/Mark... More

Average place near lake elementaita .Nice and clean ,The location is far from the lake nakuru and lake naivasha which are more suitable for wildlife and birding activity .....otherwise peaceful place to stay away from the crowd. Food is average ......for those who are keen on birds and wildlife should prefer nakuru or naivasha.

I visited Pelican lodge in August with my family during my summer vacation from work and i must say we were lost for words...our expectations were quickly exceeded in the first few minutes of our arrival. We were warmly welcomed and led to the reception for check-in and couldn’t help but notice the view and the serenity of the place.... More

this is an excellent lodge in the area. very well built and maintained. it's not over-priced. the meal was OK, and staff wasn't as nice as those in other hotels/lodges/camps. this hotel has excellent Wi-Fi access, great quality.

Great getaway if you are looking to get away from the city's hustle and bustle. Loved the serenity of the place. The rooms are bright and very spacious. I also totally loved the outdoor shower (a must-try when you get there) and the calming view from the rooms. The food which is served à la carte style rather than buffet... More

This is a great place to stay if you need somewhere to stay close to Gil Gil. Very nice lodge and the rooms are very impressive with great views over the lake. The food was a set menu with about 2 choices for your main meal, it was good enough, there certainly was enough of it. It has a great... More

The lodge is 2hours from Nairobi just off the main Nakuru-Naivasha highway.It was not hard to find the place since there is a big sign post just past kikopey town centre on the right(that's a plus considering I once got lost in Naivasha looking for a hotel since the sign post to the hotel was quite small and placed up)...

A very quickly planned weekend away and stayed at Pelican Lodge. Place is Amazing. Rooms are spacious and welcoming with excellent views of the lake. Paid for full board and it was value for money. Nice breakaway from Nairobi. Service from staff was really excellent in particular Milka and Dennis. I will go back anytime.

A beautiful getaway for those who want to get away from the daily grind of city life. Very comfortable rooms and relaxing atmosphere. Polite and tending staff. Must stress that the food was tasty and the variety quite tempting. As a bonus, our car was washed without us asking for it. I recommend this place if you want a nice... More
