Lake Nakuru Lodge
Situated in the South East Ecological niche of the Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Nakuru Lodge accommodates 180 guests in family rooms, deluxe cottages, or suites.
The facility blends with its surroundings and animals often browse peacefully nearby.
The Lodge prides itself on its high levels of comfort and service and its cuisine.
The spacious logged Mama Nikki bar, or the cool upstairs Rhino Paddock Cocktail Bar overlooking the lake and the enticing blue swimming pool can be particularly inviting.
Evening entertainment for guests is interesting and varied. The Baboon Cliff lookout is next to Honeymoon Hill, ideal spots from which to relax and enjoy the view.
In the Great Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru is a 2 hour drive on first class roads from Nairobi, winding through a series of lakes and forested uplands to the bustling market town of Nakuru.
The views are equally impressive for the visitor who uses a charter aircraft for the 25-minute flight to Lake Nakuru National Park airstrip situated at the southern side of the park, at the Rhino Sanctuary Headquarters.
Flamingoes are a feature of the lake, but the National Park has also achieved international fame as an animal sanctuary. Both black and white rhinos are being given a new lease of life in this 188 sq. km. fully electrically fenced park and they are carefully protected.
