The lodge is very close to Nakuru Lake where we went on a game ride. The staff opened their breakfast buffet early for us and packed us a wonderful box... More

The place is close to Nakuru town, Nakuru national park and other interesting places around. Also we liked the food. There were meat dishes and good choices for vegetarians... More

Sunbird Lodge consists of 16 separate lodges and is facing a lake with un matching view. This lodge is part of the Gate1 tour package, it sure exceeds my expectation. The room is nice, service and food are above average. Highly recommended.

Sweet little spot that's an easy (usually) jaunt from Nairobi. After staying here, it is worth the extra 20 minutes or so past Naivasha - great spot to relax and soak in the sun. The pool is COLD nice spot to soak in the lake views. We will be back. Appreciate the clean rooms. Some of the vegetarian fare was... More

We stopped at Sunbird Lodge for a brief drink on the way home from work (we live in Gilgil and work in Nakuru) as it was our wedding anniversary. We had intended to stay just for one drink and maybe a snack. The staff were charming and the bar area warm and snug with stunning views over Lake Elementaita and... More

We only stayed here one night on our group tour and everyone wished we had stayed longer. Wonderful accommodations and Isaak and staff went above and beyond making you feel welcome and making sure your every need was met. I look forward to going back and will stay longer.
