Parks & reserves: Lake Nakuru National Park
The nearby Nakuru city offers several choices for accommodation, but no top category hotels. There are two lodges within the park limits:
Lake Nakuru Lodge:
Lake Nakuru Lodge is located at the southeastern end of the park, close to Nderit Gate, on top of a hill overlooking the landscape around the south shore. The place used to be a farmhouse belonging to the vast Lord Delamere's properties. It was purchased to broaden the park limits and was transformed into a lodge. There are 120 beds in attached huts, swimming pool, restaurant and bar. In front of the terrace there is a waterhole where some animals may be found.
Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge:
The lodge belonging to the Sarova group is located near the eastern shore, above Lion Hill and the Euphorbia forest. Formerly it was a tented camp, which was re-built as a lodge. It has 65 rooms chalet-style, swimming pool, sauna, bar and restaurant, as well as an excellent service and a privileged location.
Naishi Guest House:
Naishi House is a self-catering accommodation provided by Kenya Wildlife Service. It is composed of one house and an adjacent cottage, both fully furnished. The main building hosts two bedrooms, each with a king size bed and a single bed, plus an equipped kitchen, dining room and an outside terrace with pergolas. The maintenance staff takes care of cleaning and provides firewood, but guests must carry their own food. On the other hand, the cottage has only two single bedrooms, thus it is conceived as an annex to the main house and not an independent facility.
