A fabulous resort with a great golf course, excellent accommodation food and service. Close to wildlife sanctuaries, a lake where you can go boating and visit 6 families of hippopotamus and thousands of birds. A Kenyan adventure not to be missed.

The resort is high above Lake Naivasha with great views of the lake and volcanoes around it. Even though it's labelled as a resort, it's very spread out and easy to feel like you're the only ones there. We rented a large house for the family, five adults and two young children. The accommodation was excellent, well equipped, spacious with...

Great Rift Valley Lodge is a GREAT place to be, for business, they have perfect conference rooms and the package is fairly good. If leisure, it is a quiet place and it is not a 'home away from home' experience, it is beyond that! for sports lovers, there is a golf course, lawn tennis and swimming. If holidaying with family,...

Everything was fine at this lodge but nothing great. In fact, on our entire 29-day trip to Africa (South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya), this was the worst food and the worst service. The food wasn't really bad, just average. However, the food elsewhere was so good and this was not in the same category. We were at the lodge for...
