Room types at The Emakoko
Emakoko Private House
The Emakoko has recently opened a Private House. The House has two ensuite bedrooms with a shared living / dining area. It also has it's own pool. The Private House is situated on the upper level with great views over Nairobi National Park.
With ten rooms & a Private House, The Emakoko offers an exclusive and personal environment for guests 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 climb to the upper rooms is well worth it.
Activities at The Emakoko
Take a game drives into one of the most unique game parks in the World, the Nairobi National Park.
An interesting project to deter large predators such as lion, leopard, hyena and cheetah, from killing livestock held in enclosures. This simple project was invented by an 11-year-old boy, Richard Turere whose family and neighbors were faced with predator incursions and livestock depredation on almost a daily basis in Kitengela (an area bordering the Nairobi National Park).
Nairobi is just around the corner for those who need to get last minute items. Although our boutique is fully stocked, we would be happy to take you to any of the local shopping areas in Nairobi. Our driver guides are not only wildlife specialists, but they also understand the art of bargaining.
