Our first experience of living with the Zebras..had a fantastic time..However we paid quite a higher price..So negotiate well. .Food is ok..but the staff goes out of the way to prepare your choice of food..

Lake Naivasha Simba Lodge was the nicest lodge we stayed at during our safari. We had a first-floor room which was very large including a large bathroom and a separate sitting area with a tv. The room had a deck where we sat and watched the animals grazing on the open lawn area between the lodge and the lake. The... More

Awesome rooms and location, but food and management service is not up to standard. I love the interior design of the rooms. Well made, and they are clean. However, the food, and the service does not match the quality of other lodges similar along Lake Naivasha.

All these rates are based considering that we're in Kenya, so proportionally to the reality of the country :) We stayed at the Lodge for one night, just to rest between our trip from Ol Pejeta to Maasai Mara. These are our highlights and rates for them. Location, surroundings, landscape 8/10- the situation of the lodge is good, next to... More

Too pricey for the quality you get. Friendly staff, but when you ask for something slightly outside of the regular, one refers you to another, the next one to another supervisor and so on... Then they get annoyed when I get impatient and just want an answer. No, I am not asking you to go outside of the hotel policy.... More

i was there sometime in May,2016. The grounds are fantastic, the animals are right there, its very peaceful. The food though left alot to be desired.I don't think its the chesfs fault , it just tastes like its been in the freezer for too long. Probably ,because they don't seem to have many guests.However if you are looking for peace... More

Relaxing and cool environment. Very accommodating and professional staff. Christopher was especially great and always welcoming during meals. The bar lounge has a nice setup for relaxing after dinner.

That was one of my best trips ever...fell in love with the breathtaking gardens. The food was always a buffet and it was very tasty. The stolls in the evening to the lake made the whole experience amazing.
