Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic stay!
The lodge is posh and well-managed. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. You can't beat the location, being in a national park, and the access to game drives is wonderful. My visit was a brief break from a business trip, and I thoroughly enjoyed the stay. One note, the accommodation price does not include entrance in to the national park. I was aware of this, but noted that a fellow guest was quite surprised that there was a separate entrance fee to enter the park and proceed on to the lodge. Overall, a fantastic experience, and highly recommend.

Lovely lodge in a really good national park
Very warm and welcoming staff. Very decent food (we were on full board), a lovely setting. Firepit at night was lovely. Pool was good though a bit chilly due to the altitude / time of year (start of rains) Lake Nakuru National Park greatly exceeded our expectations. We saw a lot of game and birds (especially on the edge of the lake to the left of the lodge - much less if you go right out of the lodge) We saw lots of zebra and buffalo, water buck, white rhinos (many) black rhino, Male Lions, crested cranes, dik dik, tortoises, jackals, eland, impala, thomson's gazelle, giraffe (Rothschilds) and bee eaters, lilac breasted rollers and many other birds. There are a small number of Flamingos left (a few thousand) but most have moved on to other rift valley lakes,

Safari at Nakuru Lake National Park
We spent 2 nights at this lodge within the Nakuru Lake National Park. We were delighted by the service, the great food, the lush environment of the lodge and of course the proximity to the parks and animals. The only minor point is that we found this lodge a little bit pricey compared to other comparable lodges situated in other parks (like Amboseli). But in any case we keep a very good souvenir of our stay there.
