I want to share this new camp with you. It is only about 20 minutes from the international airport of Nairobi, so very convenient if you arrive in the evening. You don´t have to drive 45 minutes to a city hotel (during the day there are major traffic jams from the airport to the city - up to 2 hours...). So The Emakoko solves that problem. Sometimes you just know when something will become a success. The Emakoko is one of these special places. This intimate camp overlooks the Nairobi National Park. There is no physical border with the park, it is just on the other side over the ´river´ (rather a small stream). Everything is done very stylish. There are 10 spacious rooms; 5 on the same level as the lounge (all very private), and the other 5 are situated on top of the cliff. All the rooms share the same view on the park. It feels like you are in a little valley, so you don´t have the view over the plains of the park. Something you have to know is the the steps are quite big, and if you are staying at the rooms at the top, it is some effort to get there. So not ideal for people with walking disabilities. Although the first room left from the central area would be ideal for people with walking difficulties (and wheelchair friendly). The rooms are nice and spacious and there is a big nice bathtub. I think The Emakoko is really great for the high end traveller, and a nice way to start your trip. Even if you arrive in the evening when it is dark, it is so nice to wake up the next morning surrounded by nature. As this will most probably your first stop, it is so nice to be welcomed by a traditional Masai warrior. The owners Emma and Anthony have so much experience in the tourism industry, they really know what they are doing. Btw... there is also internet access. Prety convenient.
Depending on how fit you are. All rooms have a nice view. If you really like your privacy, then book...
