The Emakoko

Nairobi | Kenya

A small lodge with standalone cottages located on the outskirts of Nairobi National Park. A good place to unwind in Nairobi and avoid the traffic into the city, plus you get to witness the wildlife of the nearby giant park

The Emakoko allows you to start and finish your Kenyan trip in a wildlife environment. Within 15 minutes of clearing customs, you can be viewing game in Nairobi National park. The only “transfer” delays likely to be encountered en route to or from The Emakoko are the natural pauses to watch a pride of lions or waiting for a rhino or journey of giraffe to cross the road.

The Emakoko is a boutique lodge located on the edge of the Nairobi National Park. It is located a short 45 minute drive from both of Nairobi’s airports, NBO and Wilson. The drive through the park itself, with its beautiful scenery and abundance of plains game is a superb way to start any East African safari.

The Nairobi National Park, despite its proximity to the capital city of Kenya, boasts a spectacular assortment of birds and wildlife. With an excellent possibility of spotting four of the Big Five, the lodge is a perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life. 

With only 10 rooms and a two bedroom fully staffed and catered private house, The Emakoko offers a personal environment. Five rooms are situated at the main level and five built into the cliff face higher up. The climb to the upper rooms is worth it for the spectacular views. There is also a funicular lift. The room interiors are designed for comfort, from huge, luxurious beds to the black-out curtains. Each room has its own private veranda.
