The Emakoko is an upmarket, owner-managed lodge that opened at the beginning of 2012. It 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 easy access to both Nairobi's airports.

Our view of The Emakoko

For a new, Nairobi hotel, The Emakoko is a very special place indeed. We have visited a couple of times since its inception, most recently in June 2017. There is a palpable buzz about it that is 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 either of the airports – a traffic-jammed torment from most hotels – is an outstanding asset.
