Ideally located on the edge of Nairobi National Park, the Emakoko is an intimate and cozy family-run boutique lodge built into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of only ten spacious rooms. There are five rooms on the main level and five built into the cliff face higher up. Each en suite room is designed for ultimate relaxation from the large, comfy bed to the blackout curtains to the snug fireplace. Plus, every room enjoys its own private veranda with chairs, a table, and magnificent views overlooking the national park making this the perfect spot for a morning coffee or a good book.
The lodge is located near Nairobi National Park which encompasses 28,963 acres of land. It is only four miles south of the heart of the city with an electric fence separating the animals from the busy metropolis. In fact, Nairobi’s skyscrapers can be seen gracing the skyline behind the park making for some amazing photographs. On its southern border, the park is bound by the Mbagathi River which is unfenced and open to the Kitengela Conservation Area. The park has a wide variety of animals including one hundred mammal species. Some of the wildlife found here include Cape buffaloes, baboons, black rhinos, gazelles, cheetah, hartebeest, leopards, Masai lions, elands, impala, giraffes, waterbucks, and many more.
