Set on a plateau along the Lion Hill, Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is arguably one of the best accommodations from which to view the incredible Lake Nakuru and the thousands of flamingos that line its shores. An idyllic escape, the lodge is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and offers panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding National Park.

Exploring Lake Nakuru National Park is the main attraction, bringing you not only to see the lake's flamingos and other abundant birdlife, but also the colobus monkey, the endangered white rhino and other wildlife like lion, leopard, zebra, gazelle, eland and giraffe.

Alternatively, visit Kenya’s famous soda lakes that form part of the Great Rift Valley. The roads in the park accommodate all vehicles making self-drives a relaxing and independent way of exploring these surroundings.


  • Panoramic views of Lake Nakuru
  • Private patios from which to enjoy the views
  • Game drives & excursions in Lake Nakuru Park
  • Thousands of flamingos in season
  • Prolific birdlife in the lodge's gardens
  • Traditional dance performances in the amphitheatre


  • Bird watching
  • Live music & entertainment
Located right in the park so you are on your game drive almost immediately. The views over Nakuru are lovely.

Standard Room

The Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is made up of 67 chalets, 3 of which are beautiful suites. All of these rooms face Lake Nakuru and enjoy incredible views over the lake and its surroundings. The rooms are connected to the main lodge areas by raised wooden walkways.

The Standard Rooms offer a spacious, elegant place to stay, with stylish furniture and optimal privacy as well as en suite bathrooms. Seven of these rooms are interconnecting, offering a wonderful place for families or a close group of friends. Each chalet walks out onto a private patio where you can take in the views.



The swimming pool is a wonderful, social place to cool off after a morning of game drives, or soak up the sun on one of the loungers. Adjacent to the pool area is the wellness tent, where you can truly relax and unwind.

Children will find plenty to do in the activity room which is well stocked with indoor games and other recreation facilities.

The Rift Valley Bar opens out into an amphitheatre where traditional dance performances are held in the evenings. This is also the perfect place from which to appreciate the spectacular views of the sunset over the lake and hills beyond.


The Flamingo Restaurant is aptly named to acknowledge its beautiful views over the lake. Here you can enjoy all your meals at either the indoor or outdoor dining areas.

The resident chefs enjoy preparing hearty, delicious meals to make every aspect of your stay enjoyable. You'll always have a choice at Sarova, with buffet-styled meals dominating the menu. The continental buffet will provide all the international favourites, while the salad buffet features only the freshest ingredients and herbs from Sarova's own vegetable garden.

End off with a range of sweet treats from the dessert buffet. For a more close-to-nature dining experience, you can tuck into delicious meals in the heart of the bush, or enjoy your meals alfresco by the poolside, in the honeymooners' corner, or in a variety of secluded spots on the extensive grounds.

Traveller Reviews

Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge

Kate Durham

Lake Nakuru was fascinating (we hadn’t realised flamingos made so much noise) and the Sarova Lion Hill game lodge very smart but a little impersonal. The food was excellent, the massage I had was superb, but we did feel just part of a large crowd an d the staff were much less able to spend time chatting and seemed a little reserved. The cooks and chefs were very informative about the food and Dave got a wonderful close up of a tiny frog with a big voice just outside the restaurant there!
