One of humankind’s oldest views

A 90-minute drive or a short flight from Nairobi, the Great Rift Valley Lodge, and Golf Resort sits 7000 ft (2130m) above sea level, on Ol Donyo Opurru, Maa for “mountain of smoke”. This elevation enjoys 360° vistas that stretch from the sparkling waters of Lake Naivasha to the jagged volcanic crater of Mount Longonot, to the Ol Donyo Opurru (or Ebburu) Hills, and beyond to the shoulders of the Aberdare Mountains and Forest. The Lodge is an ideal alternative to a city hotel, a perfect weekend getaway, and an ideal safari stopover between Masai Mara and Samburu, two of Kenya’s most famous game reserves.

The Great Rift Valley is one of the greatest natural structures on earth. Situated 12 kilometers from the Nairobi-Nakuru highway. The lodge is found on the edge of Eburu escarpment overlooking the beautiful Lake Naivasha and the Great Rift Valley. It takes you 2-3 hours from Nairobi. Set on beautifully landscaped gardens of succulent plants and ponds, the Longonot Villas open out to the mighty mountain that is Longonot, an extinct volcano from the bygone ages of the Rift’s turbulent past filled with dramatic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. On clear days, the mountain takes a double take, reflected in the fresh waters of Lake Naivasha, the highest of the Rift Valley lakes. We were here for a weekend, and we were not disappointed. The staffs are friendly and the ladies at the reception are so welcoming and it made us feel at home. The view from the rooms was spectacular not to mention the clean environment. The rooms were clean and the bed was spacious with clean beddings. There’s something for everyone on the menu ranging from the Continental buffet to African cuisine with favorites like irio – made with fresh vegetables – to spicy Indian delights like chicken tikka. Those on a special diet need only to alert the chef of their requirements. You are spoilt for desserts. There are fresh, zesty fruit salads and rich puddings like chocolate mousses and strawberry tarts complemented with ice cream or fresh cream with a selection of cheeses to end every meal. If you want to dine al-fresco under the skies, just let the chef know. Overall, services are well coordinated, and demonstrate good customer care, enabling a working environment with serene, cool & clean air. We are looking forward to being back
