Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge

Accommodation at Lake Nakuru

Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is nestled in the Lake Nakuru National Park along Lion Hill, it is a spectacular resort that offers guests an up-close and personal view of the beauty and nature of Kenya. Just a few hours away from the capital, Nairobi, this Nakuru hotel features a variety of rooms that are positioned intentionally to provide stunning views of both the Lake Nakuru and the Lake Nakuru National Park.

This Lodge is a beautiful retreat set in Lake Nakuru National Park – home to thousands of pink flamingoes and pelicans. This exotic park boasts of a rich concentration of wildlife including black and white colobus monkeys and is also a Rhino sanctuary. Look for temperamental black rhinos browsing in the bushes, and larger white rhinos cropping grass along the lakeside. Nowhere else will get a photo of a rhino with a backdrop of pink flamingos sifting food from a shimmering lake.

It features luscious greenery, winding walkways and tall yellow and beautiful green acacia trees as well, giving visitors a feeling of being among nature, while also providing up-to-date modern amenities.

Your encounter with the many Rhinoceros, commonly known as Rhinos that call this their habitat along with the varied safari animals reignites the real experience of a true African Safari. To help accommodate the needs of every guest, Sarova Lion Hill Lodge offers 67 chalets.

The chalets are divided into three suites and 64 traditional rooms. A presidential suite, called the Ziwa (lake) suite, is in an isolated location, providing the necessary privacy required for honeymooners and business executives. Two other suites, the Chui (leopard) and Faru (rhino) suites are directly adjacent. These have a cozy lodge feel complete with a fireplace. Each of the 64 standard rooms features panoramic lake views and you can choose from single, double and triple beds. It is a perfect place to experience one of the world’s largest ornithological spectacles in the heart of the Great Rift Valley.
