Hotel Overview


On the western shore of Lake Naivasha, two hours by road from Nairobi via the spectacular Rift Valley escarpment, or 15 minutes by plane from Wilson airport.

Rooms at Loldia House

There are four comfortable rooms in the main house, and another five in two lakeside cottages for families or those with a more adventurous spirit. All rooms have en suite bathrooms and are furnished in a colonial style. Hot water bottles keep your bed toasty at night.

Food and Facilities

You will eat well at Loldia House. The food is simply fantastic and all those incredibly tasty dishes are made from fresh farm produce and with fish straight from the lake. Just when you’re recovering from over-indulging at lunch, afternoon tea arrives with delicious homemade cakes. Fully-grown fever trees offer shade for picnics and lunch, while the handsome dining room provides the perfect atmosphere for family-style dinners.

Activities at Loldia House

There’s plenty to do – take a morning boat trip on the lake to see the hippos, or a short trip to Crater Lake to see giraffe and antelope congregating at the water (finish with more tea and cakes at Elsamere). The one day trip to nearby Lake Nakuru to see thousands of flamingos and look for leopard is well worth it, and if you’re feeling adventurous in the evening or too full after dinner, grab the torch and go for night game drive. The ranch has a few surprises for you.
