As part of our safari, this hotel was as close as we got to a British hotel. To sit in the sunken "lounge area"' and watch wildlife wandering just a few metres away. The biggest animal on view in this area was a hippo, so we kept indoors, and wandered toward the lake with some trepidation the next day. There...

Beautiful hotel and grounds - peaceful and relaxing. Food was good, room was great! Take advantage of a guided nature walk on the grounds. My guide and I were able to quitely walk up within 15 feet of giraffe's and water buck. This was the highlight of my one night stay.

I stayed with my wife for 1 night at Lake Naivasha and were surprised by how close we could see the hippos and the giraffes. The lodge is located meters away from the lake and the staff is helpful to take you on a walk to see the animals. The food was delicious and varied. The room was comfortable and...

We only stayed here one evening en route to the masai mara, picuresque lodge with lovely paths and landscaped gardens, rooms were clean, large and adequate, lovely view from the room overlooking a park with water bucks and other wildlife roaming the grounds. Food was OK, buffet style but was the worst of the 3 lodges we stayed at, as...

Unique, serene and quite location away from the hustles and bustles of towns. You can view some of Kenya's rich wildlife heritage just from your hotel or restaurant window. Internet and mobile phone connection :(. Great and diverse choice of food.

We stayed at this lodge for one night before a safari. The rooms were done very well and your needs were for a sleepover were satisfied. The staff was average, the food was so-so, but the garden was beautiful. They have wifi and they do not charge for it! This is pretty cool! If you just want to sleep somewhere...

I stayed here for a night with my family of 6. the rooms were cozy and well appointed, with water bucks grazing outside the room. You can spot a hippo or two beyond the electric fence. Good cottages but generally a cold feel to it, no warmth of hospitality as I experienced at other locations in Kenya. Yet a good...

I don't know how to explain it but both me and my fiancé felt this lodge had a cold ambience and feel to it. We went to several lodges for our safari in Kenya and all of them were warm and inviting, but this one gave us a different feeling. Perhaps it was the fact that the reception felt like...
