The lodge is only few hundred meters from the main road between Naivasha and Nakuru. It must be one of the best situated lodges in Africa, even in the world. It is built on an escarpment over Lake Elementeita. The view is fantastic, with hundred, if not thousands of flamingos and rosy Pelicans. It is said that the area has... More

Our room overlooked the lake and had two hammocks on the porch to relax in. They have a pool area which is nice to... More

We stayed here one night as a first stop on our Safari. Everything about it, from the lovely, comfortable room to the incredibly attentive service, was superb. And the food was delicious! I highly recommend Sunbird Lodge. The view and the proximity to delightful game drives can't be beat!

This was one of the highlights of my trip. Everything blew me away from the views, to our rooms to the wonderful meals! I can't wait to go back again!!! 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

We were there over the weekend with family and loved it very much. Prices were good, everything included, very cozy bar and charming barman who knew everything and everybody around Nakuru. 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.
