About This Accommodation

The Emakoko, located inside Nairobi National Park, is the perfect beginning to a Kenyan safari and a unique alternative to a city hotel.

Staying at the Emakoko means that you can take advantage of all the activities Nairobi and Karen have to offer while still being submerged in the safari experience from the moment you arrive in Kenya; you even have an evening game drive on arrival from your international flight! Taking into account that all meals and local drinks are included as well as a vehicle and driver to visit the sights around Karen or go on game drives in the park (in keeping with the feel of a safari property), Emakoko offers alot of value for the cost.

Ideal for a night or two, Emakoko is a family property, with the managers and their young kids being an integral part of the ambiance. In addition to rooms with lovely views and fireplaces aglow in the evenings, the property provides excellent meals, a swimming pool and even a pizza oven.

As an added benefit, transfers to the airports are through the park itself, so you avoid the busy Nairobi traffic.
