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 a 45 minute transfer from both airports in Nairobi city. 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.
The Emakoko boutique offers a wealth of treasures all locally crafted in Kenya. The shop is also one of the main Africa Adorned (Jewellery Ltd) outlets; Africa Adorned is the unique collection of original yet traditional timeless jewellery, designed by Lippa Wood and Joanna Garner and hand made in the Maasai Mara supporting the local communities.
Take a game drive into one of the most unique game parks in the world, Nairobi National Park or visit the community 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.
