I spend quite a lot of time at the rose farms around the Naivasha lake. Kiangazi is my favourite place around the lake. High standard rooms and hosting and the most fantastic view of the lake with wild animals living in the premises.

Kiangazi House is small, quaint and has excellent service. The food was the best of our time in Kenya by a mile. The rooms are comfortable and clean. One thing I didn't quite understand was the pool. It is extremely cold, dirty, and just not an appealing area. I don't expect a hotel of this size to have an expansive... More

One of the best things of this hotel is the quality of the food and recipes they offer. The chef Moroco is fantastic and very nice! Moroco. The waiter Sammuel was... More

This is by far the best place I've been to in Naivasha. The lodge is located in serene enviroment with beautiful and breathtaking scenery sorrounded by a lot of wildlife. The food is fantastic with excellent customer service. I reccommend this place to anyone looking for a lodge in naivasha. Kiangazi house is worth every cent of your money.

Kiangazi House is incredibly beautiful and relaxing. The entire staff was so welcoming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our game drives (saw both the only lion and a cheetah the next morning!) and Paul was an incredible driver.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With panoramic views across the Great Rift Valley and the shimmering waters of Lake Oloidien and Lake Naivasha is a stunning quintessential country house with excellent facilities. Surrounded by the Oserengoni wildlife sanctuary corridors and overlooking a busy waterhole Kiangazi House offers guests a relaxed and homely atmosphere. The cozy Lounge, bar area and dining room all open up on to the magnificent veranda and the gardens that boast many wild and indigenous plants. The rustic swimming pool is nestled in to the gardens with views of the water hole and Lake Oloidien. Kiangazi has 2 beautifully appointed double ensuite and one twin bedroom within the main house. There are a further 4 double rooms a short walk from the main house. All bedrooms have large beds and furnishings carefully selected for each room so that no two rooms are the same. Some rooms have fireplaces and all boast spacious bathrooms with organic handmade bathroom products from Northern Kenya. Professionally trained chefs managed by Head Chef Richard Langat ensure many ingredients are locally sourced and of the highest quality, many coming from our very own dairy and vegetable garden. Kiangazi House has gained a reputation for having some of the best food in Kenya. We believe in guests being actively involved with what they wish to eat and when. ... more   less
