Hotels Around and Within Lake Naivasha

in Lake

Hotels accommodations in Kenya range from Nairobi Budget hotel to luxury world class hotels. Most of them have partnered with renowned tour operators within the country (head offices mostly in Nairobi) and even abroad. This forms efficient service delivery channels for the country's many tourists to include pick up from the airport, car hire and car rental services. Some of the hotels around lake Naivasha include the following:

Loldia House - This is one of Kenya's oldest farms, situated in the spectacular Great Rift Valley on the shores of the lake and within easy reach of the capital, Nairobi.

Lake Naivasha Country Club - opened in 1937 as a staging post for Imperial Airways' flying boat service from Durban to London. The 55-acre property boasts green lawns shaded by mature acacias and spreading fever trees, that stretch down to the lake's shore.

Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge - On the southern shores of Lake Naivasha is Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge. The lake is the only freshwater lake within Africa's Great Rift Valley.

Lake Naivasha Simba Lodge - The newly built Lake Naivsha Simba Lodge is situated within walking distance from Lake Naivasha. The walk to the lake shore is about a kilometer along a dusty path. Midway is a gate and electric fence to control the movement of hippos into the lodge grounds. A very high platform on the jetty offers a spectacular view of the lake and Mt Longonot.

Chui Lodge - In the Great Rift Valley lies Kenya's Best Kept Secret "Chui Lodge". Whilst sipping cocktails by the warmth of a campfire and watching the sun setting behind the distant hills, June Zwager envisaged the concept of Chui Lodge.

Crater Lake Camp - Nestled on the shores of a jade green volcanic lake just one and a half hours from Nairobi, Crater Lake offers an evocative step back in time - to a bygone era of elegance and romance, in a wilderness untouched by the modern world.

Elsamere - Elsamere is the former home of the late Joy Adamson who, together with her husband George, became world famous for their pioneering conservation work and relationship with the Lioness Elsa, as told in her best-selling book and subsequent film: Born Free.

Kiangazi House - located in the 5,000-acre Oserian Game Corridor. With delightful lush gardens littered with colour, rolling lawns and a view to compliment the beautiful setting it's ironic that "Kiangazi" is the Swahili word meaning "hot and dry season".

Kongoni Game Valley Villa - Kongoni Game Valley is a private park on the shores of Lake Naivasha in Kenya's Great Rift valley only 120 km. from Nairobi. As an exclusive Safari Club it offers excellent and personalized attention to only a small number of guests.

Lake Naivasha Lodge - The lake, managed by the Friends of Lake Nakuru and Elementaita Conservation Project, was formerly an English colonial farmhouse.

Malewa River Lodge - Within this Conservancy is the small and exclusive 16 bed "eco-friendly" Malewa River Lodge, nestled in the shade of huge Acacia trees on the banks of the Malewa River.
