A fantastic stay. Great service, friendly and professional team and beautiful venue. Made me feel very welcome. Lion Hill is exceptional. I had not been to the park itself for a while but I'm going back and will stay at the Lion Hill. Thank you Sarova.

Location is good. Very near to park entrance. Rooms are not to big but are clean and adequate. Food is good and the location of the bar and the sit out is very nice. All these resorts have one big problem. They just give 2 bottles of 250 ml water per day. After that they charge.

Great views, great meals, and a great sleep. The staff are so helpful. Enjoyed the African dancing display in the evening by the fire. It was great driving around the park to see the flamingos and other wild life.

Due to some quirk of tectonic shift, it is reported, the water level has risen in Lake Nakuru over the last few years and so the great assemblages of flamingo are no longer there.

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
