Lake Nakuru Lodge
Lake Nakuru Lodge offers the sort of relaxation you have never experienced before and the surroundings are a sight too good to miss. For the visitor, this is Kenya at its best and the memories will linger for a lifetime.
Lake Nakuru Lodge is situated in a wonderland, which lies in the heart of one of Kenya's most densely populated wetlands National Park (Ramsar Site), only two hours leisurely drive - on first class roads - from Nairobi, through some of the most exciting scenery to be seen anywhere in Africa.
There is accommodation for 176 people either in family rooms, cottages or suites. The service is unmatched anywhere in Kenya, a country renowned for hospitality. Above all, the staffs are friendly and competent. There is excellent cuisine, which includes outside catering, bush barbeque, African night and sundowner.
Situated in the southeast ecological niche of the Lake Nakuru Park is the Lake Nakuru Lodge, an oasis of comfort and excellent service, with commanding views of the lesser Flamingo dotted with the Greater Flamingo, for which Lake Nakuru is justly famous. It is another world for the visitor, one where a person easily forgets the hustle and the bustle of the city. The ÄLodge blends well with its surroundings and the animals often browse peacefully close to the lodge and the environs, much to the fascination of the visitors.
The 156 km Nairobi - Nakuru road gives the visitor an unrivalled view of the majestic Great Rift Valley, winding through a series of lakes and forested uplands all the way to the bustling market town of Nakuru. The views are equally impressive for the visitor who uses a charter aircraft for the 25 minutes flight to the Lake Nakuru National Park "Naishi" airstrip situated at the southern side of the park at the rhino sanctuary headquarters.
On the outskirts of Nakuru lies a truly remarkable National Park which has achieved international fame as an animal sanctuary. Both Black and White rhinos are being given a new lease on life in this 188 square kilometer, fully electrically fenced park and they are carefully proteced. The present rhino population is 100 and continues to multiply. The Rothschilds giraffe is another unique animal and the park has its fair share of the Buffalo, Leopard, Wild dog, Zebra, Eland, Waterbuck and the territorial Lion.
Activities available include horseback safari excurstions, game drives and bird watching. After a day's game watching, the spacious, logged Mama Nikki Bar and the cool, Upstairs Rhino paddock Cocktail Bar, overlooking the lake and the enticing blue swimming pool can be particularly inviting.
Evening entertainment and the slide shows for the guests are interesting and varied. In the park, the sites seem like a Walt Disney Fantasy. The Baboon Cliff lookout sits to honeymoon hill. The Acacia and the Euphorbia forests are havens for the animals during the heat of the day. Cormorant Corner is well named, as well as Pelican Point. The Hippo Pool at the Baharini springs is a favorite spot for picnics. In the center of the park, never out of view, sits the glittering 40 sq km lake with its large population of Lesser and Greater Flamingoes and the Pelicans which, in their own right, attract visitors from all over the world.
