The Emakoko

The Emakoko is situated on 15 acres of land bordering the National Park, on one side of the plot is the Mbagathi River – Nairobi National parks natural fence line and at the top of the plot is the Emakoko River, where the lodge gets its name. Entrance to it is through the park and is a mere 35- minute game drive from all important locations - Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Wilson Airport and all the main city attractions. It is the location that makes The Emakoko so special, the National Park provides a buffer between civilization and the Lodge and yet everything is still within easy reach.




Kenya - we are all kenyan's and are very proud of what Kenya has to offer. We also love the fact that on a clear morning one can see the two highest peaks of Africa from one place in the park.

Need to Know

We are on the border of The Nairobi Naitonal Park and the wildlife is very wild! The only animals which you cannot find here are elephants. We are one of the only wildlife lodges in a capital city, and Nairobi National park has an extraordinary array of wildlife - it is a surprise to all our visitors.


We are a great start and end to any safari, or for anyone transiting through Kenya that needs a wildlife fix
