ABOUT US
Living on the Edge - Remote Refined Remarkable

The Emakoko is a boutique lodge uniquely positioned on the edge of the Nairobi National Park.  It is located a short 45 minute drive from either of Nairobi’s airports. The drive through the park itself, with its beautiful scenery and abundance of plains game is a spectacular 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 over 400 species of bird recorded in one day.  With an excellent possibility of spotting four of the Big Five, many Nairobi residents find the lodge a perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life.

ROOMS

BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED ROOMS OVERLOOKING THE GAME PARK

With only 10 rooms The Emakoko offers an exclusive and personal environment for our guests to enjoy.  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!

Our room designs and interiors are designed for comfort, from huge, luxurious beds to the black-out curtains. Each room has its own private veranda.

THE LODGE

PEACE AND SOLITUDE JUST MINUTES FROM THE CITY

The Emakoko allows people to start and finish their safari in the wildlife environment they have traveled so far to enjoy. Within 15 minutes of clearing customs they 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.

PUBLIC AREAS

INDOORS OR OUT, RELAXATION IS ASSURED

An open, airy and informal environment has been created to allow our 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.

BOUTIQUE

A WEALTH OF LOCALLY CRAFTED TREASURES

The Emakoko boutique offers a wealth of treasures all locally crafted in Kenya. The shop is also one of the main Africa Adorned (Jewellry Ltd) outlets; Africa Adorned is the unique collection of original yet traditional timeless jewelry, designed by Lippa Wood and Joanna Garner and hand made in the Maasai Mara supporting the local communities.

EXPERIENCES

ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE FOR RELAXATION OR ADVENTURE

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, and the nights are often filled with distant noises of wild animals going about their nocturnal business.

Take a game drive into one of the most unique game parks in the world, Nairobi National Park or visit the communities that border it. Otherwise an excursion into Nairobi to visit the David Sheldrick wildlife trust, the giraffe centre or the local shops may be more appealing. Finally for the more adventurous, a helicopter trip to the world famous Masai Mara, or up Mt. Kenya might be the better alternative.
