If you are visiting Lake Nakuru National Park, this is where to stay. Staff, hotel, amenities, location are all great. The food is spectacular. I wish we could have stayed longer. This is African hospitality at its finest.

The lodge is set in gorgeous gardens, with lovely public areas. The rooms are chalet-style, and are very comfortable if slightly old-fashioned (which I like). The bathroom was good, with an excellent shower. The food was very good indeed, as was the service. We enjoyed our one night at Lake Nakuru, in spite of seeing only a few pink flamingos;... More

We chose this lodge to celebrate our anniversary, and we are happy we did. Our room was on the upper level, so we had a good view of the lodge and partly of the lake - an awesome thing for early morning relaxation. The staff were professional and friendly - always saying hello (receptionists, restaurant hostesses). The manager too -... More

Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is one of the few lodges within Lake Nakuru National Park, famous for its flamingos which form a pink hue across the lake (Altitude 5938 feet, Tel: +254(051)850 235/288; E-mail: sarova.lionhill@sarovahotels.com). My family of 8 visited this beautiful property for one day on 8 September, 2016. The lodge offers comfortable chalet-style rooms and suites. Every... More

Its 5 star all the way to start with. The rooms are superb and everything is elegant and everything works. The ambiance is filled with flowers and the scents bring in the aromas of Nakuru. The food is gourmet quality but the internet is a drag, and the hotel is abit old

After having been on numerous game drives for the past week we decided to have some time off when we arrived at Lion Hill Lodge. The rooms are spread out along the side of the hill looking towards the lake, but not clearly visible. As usual all the common areas were well maintained and clean. Our room was spacious and...

The lodge has great surroundings that are naturally blending. The staff are great, friendly and receptive with the kids. The buffet is another great reason to talk about the lodge. Rooms are extremely tidy. And you get to see a great view of the lake for a sundowner! Great spot also for bird watching.

One thing i liked about Sarova lion hill is that it was the first time i have ever been to this place. Seeing a rhino is a 100 % guarantee. The rhinos are special in the sense they get a lot of attention. Wherever a rhino is, there is always a guard in the park. Sad for one reason -... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated at the heart of the Rift Valley, the Lake Nakuru national park is home to one of the most amazing ornithological spectacles in the world - the flight of the flamingos! Aside from the flamingos, the park has over 450 species of birds - a heaven for any avid bird watchers. The park is also a sanctuary to the highly-endangered black Rhino and abounds with other game such as buffalos, lions and the elusive leopard. Just two hour's drive from Nairobi; Sarova Lion Hill is one of only two lodges situated within the premises of the park. Each of the 67 recently refurbished chalets are equipped with modern conveniences and have an astounding view of the pink rimmed lake and the silhouetted hills beyond. Guests can enjoy country-style dining at the flamingo restaurant or if you like, the chef can set up something special under one of the beautiful acacia trees where one can enjoy lunch with an unobstructed view of the lake. The rift valley bar is just the right spot for that magical sundowner. Cultural dancers delight visitors with their enchanting dancing every night. An inviting swimming pool & sauna facilities are available. Guests can also enjoy outdoor massage treatments with the calming sounds of chirping birds. Outside catering facilities complement the "meals served in the bush", provided as premium add-ons, including cocktails at Baboon Cliff. The Lodge also offers conferencing facilities. The Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is one of the most sought after Rift Valley Lodges in Kenya, best known for offering finest quality services. A fabulous outdoor swimming pool to a business conference room, the hotel has almost everything that's required to make your stay a memorable one. ... more   less
