Top Tips

You’ll probably find yourself here on an organised tour, such as the organised by . If you are, this hotel makes for a welcome slice of civilisation after being out in the wilderness.
There is no bar in the hotel, so if you’re after a drink (or just some snacks), head right out of the hotel onto the residential road to find a minimart. Take the first left and you will find Santa’s Supermarket soon on your right.
Don’t expect too much of the included food, or for the internet to work. The rooms, however, are spacious, comfortable and quiet.

Top Tips

If you’re on the hunt for black and white rhinos, the grassy areas right beside the lake seem to be likely spots for good sightings. & if you do see them from afar, be patient and they might very well move nearer – though do be careful as they have been known to attack cars (especially the black species) ;).
Stop by at the for excellent views of the lake and of Nakuru town. This would also make for an excellent picnic spot.
Although there are reportedly tree-climbing lions in the park, don’t come here with high hopes of seeing them. The vegetation can be quite dense, and there were no rumblings of sightings at all when we were there.
