The drive from Mombasa was long and not always comfortable as a new road is being constructed around Lake Naivasha, but it was interesting, and an opportunity to see the real life of people in towns we passed through. We found out afterwards we could have taken a small plane in from Mombasa, but we didn`t know this at the... More

We spent two nights at Loldia as a pitstop between tented stays. It's a wonderful setting with the lawns running down to the lake and great views of Mount Longenot on the far shores. The house is well laid out with a cosy colonial-style sitting room and dining room and many lovely bedrooms with views. We had a wonderful room... More

Loldia House is cozy, and charming, you really feel how the early settlers must have lived...gorgeous beautiful surroundings. Its a great spot to relax, read a book or just go out and explore. There are a few places to... More

We had a magical stay at Loldia. The location is stunning - you are right next to the lake with wildlife roaming the farm. We saw zebra, hippos, warthogs, baboons, monkeys, hyenas, giraffes, buffalo and much more, all very near. The staff are attentive and friendly. Heather, the manager, took care of everything we needed. They served an excellent home-cooked... More

What a wonderful introduction to Kenya. This property is small, friendly and loaded with amazing birds and animals. Your game drive begins with your pickup from the airstrip. I really appreciated the wealth of information from the guides -- particularly Sammy -- on the animals and the birds. Loldia also has beautiful gardens which serve as a magnet for a... More

This lodge is very quaint, peaceful and picturesque. The chef at Loldia house is extremely talented! We are very impressed with the food. The guides were very nice and engaging, they really knew their stuff and we spotted more animals than expected. They even took us on a night safari, which was amazing! Great place to stop on your way... More

On this trip we first spent 4 nights at Governors’ Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge in the Virunga Mountains area of Rwanda (reviewed), then 3 nights here at Loldia House, followed by 5 nights at Little Governors Camp,...

Loldia House is a hidden gem of the Governor's Camp properties on Lake Naivasha. Surprisingly many do not know of its existence!! It is everything you want and more. The ambience, the hospitality, the food, the everything. I went for my 50th birthday and they made it a memorable one. Apart from the boating and exciting night game drives you... More
