The rooms are clean, fully supplied with all useful things (even slippers). Great view to the lake from our room (2nd floor). Good choice of meals and drinks at dinner and breakfast. We tried Kenian wine - Leleshwa Merlot-Shiraz 2014 and it was surprisingly good

The place was quiet and beautiful, we went at a time they weren't so busy. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We got to see very beautiful birds and a walk down to the lake shore. Our room was cleaned daily. Food was good. We hope to visit again. Keep up the good work guys.!!!!

The lodge was a middle level lodge good for team workshops. The premises is not as large as other properties and not much to do as such if going in a small group. The food for vegetarians is limited and overall you cannot expect wider variety of food you get in other nearby lodges for the same rate! Some of... More

We booked a one-night full-board stay at The Pelican Lodge in Lake Elementaita through Rupu on a Saturday and checked in on a Sunday. Being a weekend, our booking was not registered in their system but the receptionist was so accommodating, she gave us a cottage while she confirmed our reservation. The cottage, tucked in quiet corner of the property,... More
