The GRVL has always impressed. The overall experience was very good. The rooms in the cottage I stayed in had excelent facilities and amenities, functional kitchen although we used it rarely. The room was on an upper deck with a view of Lake Naivasha and indeed the town. The room was spacious, but I miss a working table and only...

What a great experience! Marvellous food for every meal of the day. Nice cabins (but do ask for a room in the second floor - my first floor (1041) did not have very good view). Very helpful staff and splendid service. This is a place to return to for several different occasions!

My supervisor and I decided to take a two-day work retreat and settled on heading to Naivasha, as we had meetings in Nairobi afterward. I had heard wonderful things about Great Rift Valley Lodge from my friend Naya, and so I booked us two full-board rooms. We had a lovely time! The staff was pleasant and accommodating, and the grounds...

GRVL was the backdrop to an incredible conference. They made everything easy, were helpful and went above and beyond the call of duty in many instances. Food is INCREDIBLE and was consistently so, for the 4 days we visited. The bush dinner comes highly recommended. The GRVL team made my first trip to Kenya unforgettable. Thank you!
