I arrived at the lodge on a hot late afternoon after a 4 hour drive from Nanyuki. I was received so warmly by all the staff members from the guard at the gate to the receptionists and the waiting staff. My car broke down at the gate and a porter was sent to receive and walk me on what I...

Stayed one night of our photo safari. Lovely grounds and open air bar. There was a performance by Masai for us after a game drive and before dinner which was entertaining. Buffet food was very good, service courteous and accommodating. Rooms were clean and adequate but a bit of a hike with lots of stairs from reception. There was NO...

We had a 2 day get away for a mini-safari at Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru. Our tour guide set us up at Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge. It far exceeded our expectations. Service, accommodations, and food were all top-notch. And to top it off it was overlooking the Lake. We highly recommend this for lodge for anyone. The grounds...

Watching the black faced monkeys playing in the trees outside your room is amazing. Lots of bird life in the game lodge as well. The rooms are great, service was very good. The African show was a really enjoyable way to relax after the safari. Lots of great game around the area - even saw a white Rhino just outside...

Spent one night with my girlfriend on her maiden visit to the Rift Valley. The rooms were very neatly laid. They have a very good menu, the chocolate mousse was simply amazing. After dinner we sat at the bonfire since it was chilly. Then a gentleman came along with a guitar, played our requests, and we danced the night away....

The buffet is great, the rooms are mediocre. Most importantly - there is no enclosed space (except your room and a small bar) in the hotel where you can hide from pesky mosquitoes. And WiFi doesn't work in the rooms so we had to sit in the bar which had windows open. This is not a big deal but could...

We stayed here for one night while visiting lake Nakuru park. The lodge itself is adequate and offers a better quality buffet than some of the other lodges I have visited. There are nice views from the patio and there is also an outdoor pool. The hotel has a tribal dance show at 7pm which was well done and they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated at the heart of the Rift Valley, the Lake Nakuru national park is home to one of the most amazing ornithological spectacles in the world - the flight of the flamingos! Aside from the flamingos, the park has over 450 species of birds - a heaven for any avid bird watchers. The park is also a sanctuary to the highly-endangered black Rhino and abounds with other game such as buffalos, lions and the elusive leopard. Just two hour's drive from Nairobi; Sarova Lion Hill is one of only two lodges situated within the premises of the park. Each of the 67 recently refurbished chalets are equipped with modern conveniences and have an astounding view of the pink rimmed lake and the silhouetted hills beyond. Guests can enjoy country-style dining at the flamingo restaurant or if you like, the chef can set up something special under one of the beautiful acacia trees where one can enjoy lunch with an unobstructed view of the lake. The rift valley bar is just the right spot for that magical sundowner. Cultural dancers delight visitors with their enchanting dancing every night. An inviting swimming pool & sauna facilities are available. Guests can also enjoy outdoor massage treatments with the calming sounds of chirping birds. Outside catering facilities complement the "meals served in the bush", provided as premium add-ons, including cocktails at Baboon Cliff. The Lodge also offers conferencing facilities. The Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is one of the most sought after Rift Valley Lodges in Kenya, best known for offering finest quality services. A fabulous outdoor swimming pool to a business conference room, the hotel has almost everything that's required to make your stay a memorable one. ... more   less
