What a glorious establishment. Set in a small river valley within the Nairobi National Park "The Emakoko" is a family run business with superior accommodation, great staff and excellent food. Just 45 minutes from the city. The rooms are excellent and very comfortable, the cuisine well prepared, delightfully served in an open-air dining area. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Despite being so close to Nairobi the wildlife viewing is great (plenty of rhino here) and if you are a bird watcher this is an exciting location. I ran up 162 species in a 3 night stay including 2 specials. Emma and Anthony really look after you. Nice shop with some excellent locally made items. A must stay if in the Nairobi area.
