It was so grand to my eyes, I wondered if they would let me in. My "hut" was so well appointed and in a beautiful setting, I thought I was in Heaven. Lovely "common toom and a great meal in their nice dining room. We were on a camping tour but this upgrade was SO special.A bumpy road in, but well worth it.

Even though in Kenya the service is amazing, this lodge superseded our expectations. Great place with an incredible service, with a lot of focus in special little details. Highly recommended when visitink Lake Nakuru

We stopped by the Ziwa bush lodge for one night during our safari trip. The property is beautiful. The landscape is beautiful and it feels good to walk around the property. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The bathroom size was quite big too with hot water coming in the shower. They placed hot water bottles in the bed at night which was a pleasant surprise. It was a little chilly and it made the night much better. The restaurant is a whole vibe!! They light up a fire in the middle of the sitting area to keep the place warm and cozy. The food at the lodge is amazing. They have an amazing chef. Whatever we ordered tasted great! The breakfast however has limited options. There’s also an orphanage on the property. You can get a free tour of the orphanage upon asking anyone of the hotel staff. I left the lodge as a very happy customer! Thank you!

The rooms are individual huts with all of the modern conveniences. Excellent hot water (but you need to remind them to turn on the electric backup for your room), superb bedding with mosq netting. Excellent food is all inclusive, which is good because there are no decent restaurants nearby. The food was buffet service. The price is very competitive and it goes to help support the Christina orphanage next door. Tours of the orphanage are free. The only possible downside is location. This is 30minutes remote from town on back gravel roads. You need a rent car to get here. This however can be seena s a plus. The location is quiet, peaceful and safe.

Nice chalet style rooms, very quiet & peaceful! A bit far from Lake Nakuru park. Breakfast limited, but a la carte lunch & dinner good - but INCREDIBLY slow service! Careful w showers - mats are too small & floor is very slippery - had 2 near accidents w family of 4.
