“Amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We stayed there for 2 nights. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The tent was really cosy, simple and spotlessly clean. Loved the hot water bottles at bed time.
All the staff made us very welcome and all the staff were friendly and always greeted us with a smile.
We could not fault them in anyway. Really pleased with the food. The service was very good.
It is the best stayed we stayed on on our African adventure. You made our holiday. Thank you.

Room Tip: Number 18. Quiet cosy corner.

We had an overnight stay in this adorable tented camp in the Rift Valley.
Loved the feel of the place, warm & welcoming. Tents spacious with decent size bathrooms & super hot water to sooth away a days travel.
Staff friendly, helpful & very accommodating.
The massage was very relaxing albeit a little cold due to it raining. A great selection of goodies at the buffet. Food ok.
We were mosquito free due to a gorjs four posted bed with nets however the beds were hard & plank like, I didn't sleep very well at all.
We did have the privilege of seeing a Rino very close to the fence like...he posed beautifully while we happily clicked away :-)

The nicest of all the camps we stayed in during our 5 day Safari tour through the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Amboseli and Tsavo east. Excellent restaurant and accommodations with spacious well equipped tents. Bonuses included hot water bottle (a lovely touch!) and free wifi.

Possibly the best night's sleep we've had in years...! A wonderfully comfortable bed, an immaculate tent, hot water bottles as part of the turn down service, a fantastic shower and lovely bathroom. So wish we could have stayed longer! Sitting by the pool watching the Rhino over the back fence has to be a highlight! Good food (love the wood fire oven!) and great staff. The fire by the foyer is a great place to review your day's animal watching with a drink (our day included a leopard!). We will be back - hopefully for more than one night next time!

We stayed there for one night. The tents were nice clean and relaxing. The gardens make you feel as if you are miles from anywere. The whole place is a great place to chill out for a couple of days. luckily this was our second trip to Lake Nakuru, because on this trip we had two very lazy guides who only went round and round on track. This was not the lodges fault, just our tour companies. The high light of our stay was the Rhino that came right up to the fence near our tent in the morning. I would stay at the camp again ( just with different guides )

When our TO suggested this place we were a hesitate as it been having some bad reviews. However we have only good things to say about Flamingo Hill Camp. Good tent, food and service excellent. Great shower.
Loved Lake Nakuru Park despite the lack of flamingos. Our guide went to great effort to make sure we saw as many animals as possible - rhinos, lions, leopards, rothschild giraffes.
if we ever get the chance to go back to Kenya this would be one place we would definitely come back to. Maybe next time the lake mightn't be in flood and the flamingos would be back.

My thoughts about this hotel/park are quite mixed. Firstly, our reasons to go to lake nakuru as part of our 7 day safari tour was mostly for the flamingos. However the lake has overflown, causing flooding. The flamingos have migrated to another lake.. so we were quite disappointed upon learning this. Had we known, we would have skipped this destination as the game run did not offer much more than other parks within Kenya. In terms of the hotel, the tents were below average. Lighting was poor, and the rooms were simple and not very luxurious. The grounds were beautiful, with a nice pool, but no view of the lake. Lots of bugs on the properties compared to other hotels/parks.,, made it difficult to hang out outside after dinner. I got a massage which was a nice treat and quite affordable. The service however was great overall. The meals were delicious altho less fancy than other resorts.
