Had a enjoyable stay at this property I liked in-particular the fresh fruit left in the room in the afternoon and the helpful staff. Only issue not sure if it was only my room but the water smelt funny and quite over powering also this area of Kenya had issues with power and its kept going out every few hours...

You have to be very critical to say anything negative about this place. A bath tub in the bathroom and better lighting would have been nice in this price range. There are waterbucks and zebra right outside your bedroom window but it is a very quiet place. You can walk around the grounds unescorted but watch out for the animal...

Got bumped from Enashipai and found this a better value resort for business purposes. Without the extensive facilities of its neighbour, it excelled in terms of service, food and beverage and the wildlife outside bedroom window. A worthy back up.

One night is not enough magnificent grounds with lots of animals wandering around. The lodges are not 5 star but very clean and comfortable the bathrooms are modern.Staff very attentive and friendly, food very good and plenty of it. You can do trips from here especialy the rose nurseries.

We were travelling from the Masaai Mara through to Amboseli (on a self drive safari) and decided to break our journey in Naivasha. We chose the Simba Lodge and are glad we did. The Lodge is well established with beautiful grounds sitting on the edge of Lake Naivasha (due to the lateness of our arrival and the rainy weather we...

The setting of this lodge is stunning, you are surrounded by wildlife. The staff were very welcoming & friendly. Our room was fantastic, they are large rooms & when I pulled back the curtains I was amazed to see Zebra & Wild buck wandering quite happily right past our veranda. Our room had the outside shower but unfortunately we didn't...

Simba is a nice place to stay of you like big hotels. It had too many rooms for my liking. The food is served in buffet and the variety is vast. The food is tasty and the chefs are friendly. The staff at the reception are a llittle snobbish. They couldn't be bothered if you stayed or left and if...
