The start of our honeymoon
We had the most amazing time here and we have the fondest memories you can imagine! Being our honeymoon, our entire trip was fantastic- Starting in Nairobi, then to Loldia House, then to Governor’s Camp and on to Zanzibar. I have to say, however, that we had a truly magical time at Loldia and the memories come out on top! We will never forget this place that felt like home from home in a way! Heather, Mungai and Constance made our short stay so special with their kindness and hospitality. We’d love to see you all again one day! Thank you, we will never forget our fantastic stay with you!
A wonderful relaxing place to stay
Arrived at Loldia House after a 2hr drive from Nairobi to find peace, serenity and calmness. Being met by Heather who ran me through all I needed to know, being given the customary hot towel and refreshing fruit drink I was shown to my room. Loldia House is just what is required either at the beginning or end of a safari holiday as it is very restful. Things to do, or not, according to requirements. The lake just goes on and on, the hippos and sea eagles keep you entertained with their calls, so many birds to watch, the gardens to wander round and the infinity pool was so refreshing. The evening get together for drinks before a delicious meal with fellow guests was very enjoyable. As a solo traveller I really enjoyed feeling part of a group like this and sharing stories and experiences of places visited and still to visit. The properties run by Governors are exceptional and I can not recommend them highly enough.
Comfortable , peaceful and delightful lodge
Introduced by Far and Wild Travel UK , we enjoyed 4 days at Loldia relaxing , surrounded by tremendous hospitality and being led by Juma ,an expert guide. We looked across the stunning gardens to Lake Naivasha. Highlights were a dawn boat ride witnessing rich bird life , game drives by day and after dinner , a visit to Crescent Island Nature Reserve and visit to nearby Groove Flowers ( international growers of roses ) . The manager Rachel was an exemplary hostess ensuring every day was interesting and every evening was convivial . We are not customary fans of communal dining but it worked well here , supported by good food and charming service throughout by the staff team. We drove up from Nairobi which allowed us to see villages and countryside with views across the Rift Valley . There is an air strip a mile from Loldia House. Highly recommended .
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.
