This was the first and best place we stayed at in Kenya. As soon as our three vans arrived, we are wholehearted greeted with staff coming out and taking our luggage. As you enter the lobby we were served a glass of orange juice and presented with a hot towel. The lobby and dining area are beautiful with windows and...

An absolutely amazing time there and so relaxing!! Loved the pool, spa, and the best was the nature and the trees! The boat ride to see the hippos was amazing as well!! A great trip always has a place where you can relax and take it all in!

A friend and I wanted to get away for a day from Nairobi, and based on reviews on food quality we selected Lake Naivasha Simba Lodge. The lodge and surrounding gardens were breathtaking with herds of water bucks roaming within feet of the restaurant. Outside the perimeter fence, giraffes, zebra, and a host of bird can be viewed. All this...

Really beautiful and serene hotel, located on the shores of Lake Naivasha. The majestic acacia trees, the wild animals roaming around the property and the wide variety of birds chirping and cooing incessantly make it the perfect get away. Good food though service seems to have gone down a bit.

Stayed in Company of Colleagues while attending a conference. The staff were wonderful. Food was excellent and of good variety. The grounds were well maintained, and offered a lovely view, while combining with the wild animals roaming the place freely. It was a wonderful three day experience.

This was my first stay at Simba Lodge and I must say I was really impressed. Accommodation was in self contained and impeccably maintained suites set out in a few units per block. The blocks themselves blend in excellently with the lush green vegetation - acacia trees, bush and well mowed grass. Wild herbivores (zebra, water buck, giraffe) roam freely...

I have first stayed there for a work retreat and then decided to bring my husband just for a weekend, given that we live in Nairobi and the trip does not take a lot of time. It is a very calm and quiet place, although we were surprised to find few people staying, even if the hotel management informed us...
