Ideally located on the edge of Nairobi National Park, the Emakoko is an intimate, family-run boutique lodge built into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of 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 nearly 29,000 acres of land. The park is only four miles south of the heart of Nairobi and has an electric fence separating the animals from the busy metropolis. In fact, Nairobi’s skyscrapers can be seen gracing the distant skyline, offering unique photographic opportunities. 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 over one hundred mammal species including Cape buffalo, black rhino, cheetah, hartebeest, leopard, Maasai lion, eland, impala, giraffe, waterbuck, and many more.
