Our first impression of this very personal Camp was so wonderful, I almost cried. We were met at the airport by a driver who took us to the camp. Even though it was practically 11:00 pm... in the dining room was a table set for the 2 of us with candlelight . The meal was

We were a group of 6 friends reunited after 30 something years. The accommodation was superb and we were looked after exceptionally. The Emakoko is a hidden gem and truly fabulous. The food and the service was second to none and I would highly recommend this Lodge if you were in

We live in Nairobi and come here sometimes to just enjoy the serene beauty of Emakoko. Everything is really ace - the comfort, the tasteful design, the friendly and attentive staff and...the food is simply delicious. Love it here.

I had to visit Nairobi on business, but also wanted to explore the National Park. It seemed sensible to stay in the Park rather than travel in and out from a Nairobi hotel. (The Nairobi traffic is terrible.) The Emakoko is situated above the river that marks the Park

The hotel is located inside of the National Park It is about a 40 min drive from the entrance of the park to the hotel. If you are planning a visit to the park then this is a good hotel. Unfortunately we were there for only a few hours and it really wasn’t convenient.

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.

Hi, why is July 2017...off the sign in
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.

El Emakoko está a unos 30 minutos en coche del Orfanato de elefantes por el parque. También puede acceder al orfanato fuera del parque, pero esta ruta lleva un poco más de tiempo. Gracias
