My wife and I just returned home from our 11 day safari to Kenya and Tanzania. We stayed at the Simba lodge on our 3rd night and enjoyed every minute of it. It is set on many acres of forest, right on the edge of Lake Naivasha which is in between the Masai Mara and Nairobi. The grounds are beautiful and there are many animals roaming around. We saw all types of gazelle, dik dik, flamingos, hippos, giraffes and many birds too. The public areas: restaurant, bar, pool, gym and the hotel buildings are very nice and in good shape. Our room was very large, with a separate sitting area for watching TV and pretty much was a mini suite. The rooms are also very nicely appointed with African themes and all have a view of the beautiful grounds and the animals are right out the window. One of our favorite things was, we had a ground floor room that had a small, private courtyard with an outside shower that we used a few times and that was a really nice treat! Overall, this place was on of the best we stayed at on safari and the food and the staff was top notch as well. We even made friends with a security guard who took us on a mini, night safari on the grounds where we saw several hippos and other animals too! ( I think his name was Samuel?) I would highly recommend staying here and would stay here myself for sure on a future trip!
