The Emakoko

  • Description

  • Important Information
The Emakoko is a 20-bed luxury lodge artfully built into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River, which borders the Nairobi National Park. Great care has been taken to incorporate the beautiful fig trees which grow on the cliff where the lodge is situated and all rooms look straight over the river and into the Park.

The lodge is situated on 15 acres of land bordering the National Park; on one side of the plot is the Mbagathi River which is Nairobi National Park's natural fence-line and at the top of the plot is the Emakoko River, where the lodge gets its name. Entrance to the lodge is through the park, which is an ideal way to escape the Nairobi traffic.

The lodge is surrounded by the most beautiful trees, including the majestic Migumo trees, which play an important part in Kenya’s traditions. A large variety of bird life can be seen around the lodge, from green wood pigeons to our two resident eagle owls who keep a beady eye on the other residents.

The lodge itself is a mere 25-minute game drive from all important locations, including Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Wilson Airport and all the main city attractions. It is this location that makes The Emakoko so special - the National Park provides a buffer between civilization and the lodge and yet everything is still within easy reach.

Whether you are enjoying an Emakoko cocktail in the viewing area or simply a coffee by the pool overlooking the river, relaxation is assured. There is also the chance to see our resident hippo, who likes to keep an eye on guests. If stress is what you are escaping from and rest is what you need, then The Emakoko is the perfect place. At times, the silence can be almost deafening during the day, while the nights are often filled with distant noises of wild animals going about their nocturnal business.

Activities at The Emakoko include day and night game drives, shopping excursions to various shops and craft markets, visits to the Giraffe Centre, Nairobi safari walks and the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, community visits, bush breakfasts and lunches, sundowners, and helicopter trips.
