Lake Nakuru Lodge

Discover Lake Nakuru Lodge

Found in the Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Nakuru Lodge is surrounded by rich game, tumbling forested plains and mountains. The lodge takes its name from Lake Nakuru, one of the Great Rift Valley's sprawling soda lakes, home to a significant flamingo population synonymous with the area. A peaceful and comfortable lodge, Lake Nakuru offers 98 rooms to suit all requirements and is only a 2-hour picturesque drive from Nairobi.

The 95 deluxe rooms each have a glass sliding door with great views of the park, garden, or lake. All have showers and baths in the bathrooms. There are 3 suites with a private veranda and a sitting room. The rooms can accommodate triples and families. The Mutarakwa Restaurant has an inside and outside dining area, with the latter facing a watering hole allowing you to enjoy your meals whilst watching the wildlife. The property boasts 2 bars and wonderful cuisine. Bush barbeques and picnics at the Hippo Pool are on offer and the Baboon Cliff Lookout is perfect for a romantic spot to enjoy incredible panoramas.
