““Fantastic place and Excellent staff and Food””
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

We stayed at Sarova Lionhill last week for 3 Nights. We really enjoyed our stay. Hmmm everything were perfect excellent location, rich food, excellent staff, good veg. selection for vegetarians, freshly squeezed fruit juices, salads counter, desserts, fresh fruits etc.etc .

We went there with our 6 months old baby she also enjoyed BIG. All the staff is very friendly they are asset to the owners. Infact they made a very beautiful surprise cake for our baby as she was a youngest guest ever.

We can’t wait to go back there soon and will not think twice to recommend to our friends & relatives.

We stayed at Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge in February this year for the weekend. I really enjoyed the place. The rooms were quiet basic, but had everything you need (no TV), but they have a television in the bar area. Every night they have traditional dancers and a show for the guests. The food is really good with buffet type setup, however, they do have stations where they will prepare the food such as: salad station, fish station and a meat station. the rest are precooked and served buffet. The desert was something special, as the variety was crazy, that we just could not make up our minds. We took the self drive option within the park which was really nice and we saw loads of animal such as; lion, giraffe, wildebeest, buffalo, monkey, flamingo's rhino to name a few. It is well worth a visit

Room Tip: Just a note that the rooms do not face the National Park, so probably the ones close to reception ar...

We stayed for one night at this hotel. The checking was smooth. The food was really good,something for everyone, the veg selection was very tasty and so were the desserts. They had a local troupe perform a few local dances in the evening which was really fun. The wildlife we saw was stunning, infact as soon as we entered the park we saw a lion which decided to sit by the road and pose for pictures. The only issue we had was the distance to the rooms it can be quite a walk and a climb to get there. But no issues with mosquitoes or flys or bugs. The bathroom was clean, the water hot and the staff smiling...will stay here next time. The only grouse i had was that they wouldn't serve water in the restaurants, you had to buy it.

Room Tip: ask for rooms near the main reception.

When you take a "bucket list" trip to Kenya....do yourself a favor and book a couple of nights at this lodge.

Our group spent 3 nights here and it was fantastic....the grounds are stunning. Rooms clean and comfortable....the pool inviting. The food was AWESOME (something for everyone) Laundry service was great! Staff....best of class.

Wildlife....P R I C E L E S S!

Everything about Sarova Lion Hill just works.

Located in the perfect spot with a view over the lake Nakuru, the lodge is a great place to just relax between game drives and spend the evenings. During the day it is a great place to bird watch as well.

From the moment you check in, you are taken on a tour of the lodge. The main dining room serves a great meal be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is a coffee shop that turns into a bar in the evenings and always has free tea and coffee.

There's a nightly dance / live music performance before dinner.

Rooms are large as spacious.

Room Tip: Get a room at the top of the hill (we changed to room 65 from 12) to get the best views of the lake

Lake Nakuru National Park is indeed the best bird's paradise in Kenya, Ole Naso our resident birder says there are more than 600 species within the park.
