The property is actually located between Gilgil and Nakuru in the Great Rift Valley and set in 55 acres of grounds on the shores of Lake Elementaita.

Sunbird Lodge is named after one of the more than 450 species of birds in this area. The lodge has spectacular views over Lake Elementaita and guests can experience the amazing sunsets from the verandahs of the cottages.

During the day relax and pamper yourself to a massage or take a dip in the swimming pool, or go for a game drive in Nakuru National Park, or experience a balloon safari followed by a unique champagne bush breakfast. Or watch the sunset over the lake while you take a sundowner.

The bar and lounge with an open fireplace is well stocked with both local and imported beverages. The friendly barman will prepare you an exotic cocktail while you relax and take in the wonderful views.
