5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

We have been to Kenya Several times and thought we would give this new place a go. I must say we were blown away by everything, it felt like you were in the middle of the bush straight away. The rooms are enormous and the food was wonderful, the entire setting was lovely. We fell asleep to lions roaring accross the river and on the way to the airport to catch our mara flight we came accross one of the lions and three white rhinos.
Although it is very new the staff all felt like they had been there for years the hospitality was wonderful. Will definitely use Emakoko next time.

Room Tip: Choose the bottom rooms as the hill is very steep to the top
