On the outskirts of Nakuru, Kenya lies a truly remarkable National Park which has achieved international fame as an animal sanctuary. Lake Nakuru Lodge is situated in a wonderland, which lies in the heart of one of Kenya's most densely populated wetlands and worldwide haven of birds. Originally a farm house, the lodge is located inside Lake Nakuru National Park.
The Lodge is an oasis of comfort and excellent service with commanding views of its surroundings and the animals which graze peacefully close to the lodge. 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 lodge provides 68 rooms and cottages with 136 beds. The rooms have chalet bathrooms with private shower and other amenities including mosquito nets, telephones, an in-room safe, and veranda with a panoramic view of Lake Naivasha. The service is unmatched anywhere in Kenya, a country renowned for hospitality.
After a day's game watching, the spacious logged Mama Nikki Bar and the cool upstairs Rhino Paddock Cocktail Bar command beautiful views overlooking the lake and the enticing blue swimming pool. Evening entertainment and the slide shows for the guests are interesting and varied.
Activities include horseback safari excursions, game drives, and bird watching. In the park, the sites seem like a Walt Disney Fantasy. The Acacia and the Euphorbia forests are havens for the animals during the heat of the day. Cormorant corner is well named as is Pelican point. In the center of the park lies the glittering lake with its population of Flamingoes and Pelicans which attract visitors from all over the world.
