Set on 55 acres of private land between Nakuru and Gilgil, this lodge is located in the Great Rift Valley,on the shore of the 'pink' Lake Elementaita, a 20 minute drive from Lake Nakuru National Park and near Lake Naivasha. Sunbird Lodge is named after one of the more than 450 species of birds in this area.

The setting overlooks the vast plains of Soysambu Conservancy. Beautifully nestled in a pristine environment above Lake Elementaita you can experience the amazing sunsets from the lodge.

It is a small and exclusive lodge which currently has 14 large guest cottages, plus 2 even more spacious suites. These are built from natural materials and have thatched roofs. Each cottage and suite has its own veranda, king size bed, additional single bed, mosquito net, safe, telephone and en-suite bathroom.

The restaurant has big glass doors overlooking the lake. It serves a buffet breakfast and a la carte meals for lunch and dinner. Two fire places keep you warm and spread a romantic atmosphere. Meals can also be served outdoors under the stars overlooking the swimming pool and Lake Elmentaita. The lodge is perfectly located for viewing sunsets over the lake.

Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

Absolutely beautiful place with stunning views! The lodges were gorgeous, once again the food was delicious. Unfortunately the staff didn’t get the best first impression of my mother who was suffering from travel sickness from the drive from Nairobi. But they were outstanding! Friendly and couldn’t do enough for us Special shout out to Mary The only negative thing I can say was there were no facilities to make a cup of tea or coffee in the lodges. It had to be up in the main building
