“Superb lodge”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Fantastic setting, fantastic wildlife, fantastic staff, unbelievably wonderful food even for us veggies. We travelled with Travelbag and their organisation was perfect, my personal opinion is that Kenya should always be the chosen country to go on Safari to as it has the best wildlife experience, our guide Abdi Latif was the best we'd ever had

we reached around 5 in the evening and just spotted one rhino. Lake has no pink flamingos left. could spot just a few white ones. its more a marketing gimmick showing thouands of pink flamingos if you check any of the pictures on the net of lake nakuru.
however the property is excellent. we had to leave the next morning early for masai mara so couldnt enjoy the property really.

The lake has lately experienced unprecendented rise in water levels which in turn has changed the salinity of the water; this has affected the growth of blue-green Algae that forms the main diet for the flamingoes

Jambo!! Arrived from Sweetwaters on the 4th June. Was alloted Room 39/40 which was very close to the reception and very convienent. The Room was very comfortable and clean with all amenities. Food was very good with a wide choice for vegetarians. Staff were very professional. Nakuru is quite different from the other parks and worth a visit. Wildlife is abundant with lots of Rhinos, and hundreds of different varieties of birds. Worth a visit. Overall very satisfied.

Room Tip: All cottages are similar.

Having coming from some beautiful lodges we were disappointed with this one. The staff were not very accommodating or friendly. Asked several times for bottled water in our room. The room was outdated and badly in need of repair, with the bare minimum of accessories. Doors did not close properly, bath was grotty and toilet did not flush all the time. Noisy with guests coming and going. However, the restaurant was good and the food great. Unfortunately, there was not a lot to be seen on our game drive at the lake.

Have stayed at the lodge several times even though not recently...nevertheless I would be remiss if i did not share my experiences. The road to the Sarova through the park is exciting right from the entrance when you are greeted by baboon families and warthogs as you wait to get into the park! Your safari can be fun just spotting the animals, giraffe, even a leopard in the trees. A side trip to down to lake Nakuru is beautiful with the pink flamingos and myriad of other birds, zebra, cape buffalo. The personnel are friendly people. The rooms are comfortable, the suites are really nice...be prepared to hear the lions during the night! The meals are buffet style and they try to accommodate tastes of people from all over the world, skip the wines, entertainment at night with dancers and a fire burning brightly...next morning your safari in the park will not disappoint.

Room Tip: If you can afford an upgrade, go for one of the suites. Spacious and comfortable.

Well equipped for all our needs. I was with a disabled friend. It was easy to get around and plenty of friendly help from staff. Food was great - buffet service with plenty of cosmopolitan choice. Lovely relaxed restaurant and entertainment. Polished service from experienced staff. Nice swimming pool. Pretty little birds singing and flying in and around gardens and restaurant. Rooms comfy and clean. Relaxed atmosphere. Game drives interesting and fun ! Great for children. We thought ours might be bored. They most certainly were not !

Stayed April 2014, travelled with friends

Located inside Lake Nakuru national Park Lion Hill Lodge is a lovely place with hundreds of bird species whose sweet sounds make morning an unforgettable experience.
The rooms are spacious and staff very courteous while the restaurant offers some of the best cuisines. Wildlife is abundant with many animal species including all members of the big 5 excluding elephants roaming aroung the park and near the lodge.
