Lake Nakuru in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley is one of those mesmerising destinations that fill your soul forever with sensory vistas of pink flamingos and rare black rhinos, huge expanses of dazzling blue waters and a lodge called Sarova Lion Hill, made for family safaris in the expansive wilderness that is Kenya.
Sarova Lion Hill Lodge is the perfect base for your Kenya safari holiday with excellent game viewing, scintillating bird watching of huge flocks of flamingos and pelicans, and golden sunsets across wide open skies.
Pack up the kids for that ultimate trip into Africa to see the animals, meet the Masai warriors and learn about ecotourism as it should be. Named after the hill in which it hides, Lion Hill lodge has been created especially to take in the pink flamingo views across Lake Nakuru National Park, just a short 2-hour ride from Nairobi so very convenient yet still wild in the extreme.
There is plenty of luxury accommodation for everyone at Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge, where 67 neat chic rooms are spread out under acacia trees on the lake edge, with beautiful walkways linking them to the main lodge guest areas. Free Wi-Fi in these large chalets adds to the private decks with lake views, and individually decorated rooms with ensuite showers and gorgeous linens.
Dine with the other 150 guests in the aptly named Flamingo Restaurant where you can sit indoors or out on the deck overlooking the swimming pool and garden, the lake and the National Park. Tuck into a vast buffet meal three times a day offering meals from around the world, with a Kenyan focus, of course.
Even business people will feel welcomed on safari at Sarova where events and conference facilities are part of the package deal if needed, catering included. Organise nature walks with proficient guides to the Menengai Crater and Lake Elemetaitaor or a cultural event at a local village.
Children will love all the games, the wildlife viewing and discovering so much more to know about wildlife and its habitat, ecosystems and plants. Parents can escape to the spa for a therapeutic session at the well-equipped spa with its range of massages and beauty treatments for all. Take a drive to Nakuru town to explore the Kenyan culture if you like but use your days to the fill for game viewing, bird watching and lake relaxing.
If you love flamingos, water, and wildlife conservation then head to the lake Nakuru National Park to find all of these and more – and choose Sarova Lion Hill Lodge for its luxury rooms and ingenious views of the lake and mountains. Nairobi residents drive to the park for weekends away at Sarova to birdwatch and enjoy spa treatments and lavish buffet meals.
Named after the Lion Hill in central Lion Hill Lodge is perfectly placed in the Great Rift Valley where the Kenyan Lake system becomes central to the birds’ migration route as they make their way from breeding grounds in the north to wintering locations in Africa. Kenya is home to 64 of the total lakes found within the continent of Africa and 8 of these make up the main lakes in the Kenyan Rift Valley.
Lake Nakuru takes up an entire third of the national park and Sarova Lion Hill Lodge sits on the rim, its 67 luxury safari suites sprawled out along the lake edges to take in all of the wilderness and glorious changing vistas. Visitors love the special grounds, the acacia trees and the amazing spa and swimming pool facilities with the added advantage of booking birthday celebrations, VIP banquets and work conferences too – a high-class team-building venue that mixes business with pleasure.
Families are welcome in the larger suites with their extra rooms and suites and their ensuite showers and large comfy beds. Bird-watching game drives are the most popular and seeing birds in their millions is simply astonishing. The excursion to Baboon Cliff is worth the drive so that you can stand on the highest point of the park and look out over the lakes, the rhino sanctuary and more of the astounding Rift Valley.
