Emakoko Location Map

Emakoko is a family-owned and run lodge artfully built into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River, which borders the Nairobi National Park - just a 45 minute transfer from both airports in Nairobi.

Emakoko allows people to start and finish their safari in the wildlife environment they have travelled so far to enjoy.

Nairobi National park is a fantastic refuge from the hustle and bustle of Kenya’s capital city. Over the years the Nairobi National Park, although not a particularly large Park compared to many in Kenya, has become home to a huge number of wildlife species including a very healthy black rhino population and the Park is renowned for very close encounters with lions.

Emakoko has 4 Toyota Land cruisers, converted especially for game viewing. The guides are also KPSGA qualified and have a huge amount of knowledge on the flora and fauna in the area.

The 12 beautifully appointed rooms look out over the Park so you can fall asleep to the sounds of Africa - a lion roaring or the cry of a lone hyena - an amazing contrast to the sounds of traffic, ambulances, fire engines and dogs barking which are the normal sounds of any sleeping city.  There are 5 rooms on the same level as the main areas and a further 5 rooms with the most spectacular views positioned on top of the cliff, overlooking the valley.

An open, airy and informal environment has been created to allow guests to escape from the pressures of everyday life. Whether you are enjoying an Emakoko cocktail in the viewing area or simply a coffee by the pool overlooking the river, relaxation is assured.
