A new, upmarket, owner-managed lodge, opened at the beginning of 2012, The Emakoko straddles the southern boundary of Nairobi National Park, marked by the gorge of the Mbagathi River in an area where three rivers converge. The lodge has the national park’s much underrated game-viewing areas on its doorstep and fast access via the park’s East Gate to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Our view of The Emakoko

For a new, Nairobi hotel, The Emakoko is a very special place. It was still early days when we stayed in April 2012 but there was a palpable buzz about it that was infectious. We had to keep reminding ourselves that we were only a few miles from central Nairobi. The location is spectacular, and the opportunity to make a wildlife-watching virtue out of the transfer through the park to the airport – a traffic-jammed torment from most hotels – is an outstanding asset.
