Within 20 minutes+ of getting off plane we could have been at Emakoko Lodge, except there was great game viewing so it took a bit longer!! We saw lions slumbering with Nairobi in the distance! Elephants, giraffes, hippos plus eagles, storks, cranes, rhinos, pumbas...!! Amazing

Everything about The Emakoko was just perfect. The staff were attentive yet discreet, and really went out of their way to make us feel at home, with special care for our seven-year old daughter. The food was truly excellent - every time. The room was spacious, clean - we would

Excellent cabins, extremely friendly staff and hosts, fantastic food in the middle of Nairobi National Park. All inclusive, and just an experience to remember. Highly recommended if you have some time off in Nairobi.

The Emakoko will arrange to pick you up at the airport. Game drives are totally your call - you can go out for as long as you want, depending on how tired you might be after a long trip. You can ask for Sundowners - drinks out in the park at the end of the day also / fun at the end of an afternoon game drive. Bathroom breaks in the Nairobi N P are easy. There are campsites to stop at, or you can stop behind a bush. Your driver/guide will check it out to be sure it is safe.

We booked through our agent as well so not really sure, but I believe the price is around 500 $ US per night incl breakfast and dinner.
