A Perfect house to fill with 15 of the family!
3 delightful days were spent unwinding after our Samburu safari on a multi-generational family holiday. Returners for all of us, 7 years ago, so appreciated the upgrade of bathrooms in the end cottage (rooms 6&7), the enlarged dining room and the beautiful swimming pool, up the hill above the last cottage. There is a spa for treatments and you can get cold drinks whilst you soak in the great view of Lake Naivasha! Delicious meals, with sundowners out on the farm, day & night game drives and an early morning boat rides soon fill your day. Trips to Lake Elementaita and Lake Nakuru were made, plus horse riding on our last day at Sanctuary Farm, with lunch afterwards. We flew in and drove out. It is such a special place to stay in and I would highly recommend it and hope to return before too long.
Always worth another visit
It is 20 years since I first visited Loldia and this most recent was my 10th. Yes there have been changes since my first visit - a swimming pool, a new dining room, etc but what hasn't changed is the warmth of the welcome, the friendliness of the staff, the delicious food and the beautiful gardens. The night game drives are must in my view as one has the chance of seeing animals that are not around during the day - such as an aardvark (definitely not guaranteed) but we saw one on this trip and the "African kangaroo" which is almost guaranteed so long as it is not raining. On this most recent trip I spent a morning at Lake Elementaita - a must if you like birds and later on the same day we went across the road onto more Loldia land and found 8 Giraffe including a young one. What more can I say in praise of Loldia except that I hope to visit again in the no too distant future.
Lovely quite place on the banks of Lake Naivasha
A wonderful well kept lovely quiet House on the banks of Lake Naivasha from where you can make trips to Lake Nakuru, Elementaita, rose nursaries, Elsamere (Joy and George Adamson's place) etc. The view, food and staff are great, Maku the cat is lovely companion. However, I would recommend fly in from Nairobi instead of taking the road
Only a short stay but really wonderful
We only stayed one night - a big mistake next time we will stay longer. The location and accommodation was absolutely outstanding and the staff could not do enough for us. The boat trip around the lake and night game drive were very memorable experiences and a must if you visit. very highly recommended we will definitely return!!!
This was our first stop on our Honeymoon and it was the perfect start to our safari trip! We arrived at around 11am and were greeted by David and Keith who were truly excellent hosts for our entire stay. We were very fortunate to get the cottage to ourselves, not actually within the main complex but a short drive up the hill, with the most amazing view! We had Peter as our room steward who was lovely and did a great job. On our first day after arrival we had lunch and were then driven down to a lake (can't remember the name!) and had a boat trip where we saw loads of different birds and hippos! Beware of the journey down there though, possibly the bumpiest road we've ever been on! On the second day after a lovely breakfast we were taken by Jacob to lake Elementaita to see the flamingos and then to Nakuru where we saw Rhinos, Lions, Giraffes etc. a really amazing place, accompanied by lunch prepared by the chefs eaten as a picnic (on guard from boisterous baboons looking to steal what they could!). It was a brilliant day out and we were really fortunate to see both Black and White rhinos as well as lions. The food during our stay was brilliant and we loved the communal dining, it was great to meet and share experiences with other guests. The ability to do night drives is also a fantastic option and we saw lots of things that we wouldn't have otherwise seen in the daytime. We would definitely recommend visiting Loldia to anyone, it was an incredible start to our Safari!
