Situated on 15 acres of land on the Emakoko River bordering Nairobi National Park, the 20 room Emakoko is surrounded by majestic fig trees. A large variety of bird life can be seen around the lodge, from Green wood pigeons to two resident eagle owls who keep a beady eye on the other residents. There is also a resident hippo, who can be seen grazing on the lawn outside the rooms in the early evening or the morning. The Emakoko allows guests to start their safari in a wildlife environment. Whether you are enjoying cocktail in the viewing area or simply a coffee by the pool overlooking the river, relaxation is assured.
