“The best break from the hustle and bustle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you want a real break from it all, PinkLakeMan lodge is the place for you. They have lake frontage and wonderful rustic cabins with all the amenities you will need to relax. There are no TVs and hotel telephones. For company you have all the birdlife you can wish for including flamingos and pelicans. On my most recent visit there seemed to be more monkeys than my previous visit.

I have stayed on more than three occasions both in the cabins and also camping in the grounds. During the camping trip we had a horde of children and they never got bored during the two nights we spent there. The weather is just glorious- hot enough to keep you in the shade during the day, cool enough for long walks on the lake shore and later in the night you will need a camp fire if you want to spend some time stargazing.

During my first stay, apart from the cozy cabins, we all loved the resident chef, Edward who could spin any meal we fancied. I have never self-catered but they do have facilities and with Kikopey and Gilgil towns nearby, you can easily get supplies.

There is no shortage or activities in the area- bird watching, hot springs, hiking, Soysambu Conservancy, a visit at the Africa Forest Centre in Soysambu, Kariandusi pre-historic site, Lake Nakuru National Park, a night out in Nakuru or Naivasha, golf at Gilgil Country Club, etc

The lodge has totally got me hooked to the Lake Elementaita area, which is one of Kenya's unsung tourism gem. If on your stay you get lucky to meet the host Mr. Macharia, you will be taken on a journey of the area's history spanning over 150 years. He knows the area and her colonial dark secrets very well. He will take you on a nostalgic tour to the decadent Happy Valley, who Lord Gilbraith Cole was and why he was honoured with an obelisk. Mr. Macharia is also a committed conservationist hell-bent on saving the Lake shore's remaining vegetation as well as being an ardent adventurer and timber DIY expert.
