      The Emakoko

      Start and End Your Safari in Nairobi Nature

      The Emakoko is a family-owned-and-run lodge artfully built into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River, which borders the Nairobi National Park. The Emakoko allows people to start and finish their safari in the wildlife environment they have travelled so far to enjoy. The beautifully appointed rooms look out over the game park so one can fall asleep to the sounds of Africa, a lion roaring or the cry of a lone hyena, an amazing contrast to the sounds of traffic, ambulances, fire engines and dogs barking which are the normal sounds of any sleeping city. There are five rooms on the same level as the main areas and a further five rooms with the most spectacular views positioned on top of the cliff, overlooking the valley. 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. The Emakoko has supported the local community with the 'lion lighting scheme’ which is one way in which predators have been deterred from attacking the community Bomas. 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 Center or the local shops may be more appealing. Finally, for the more adventurous, a helicopter trip (at an additional cost) to the world famous Masai Mara, or up Mt. Kenya might be the better alternative.
