If you're staying in the Nairobi area you can't beat the Emakoko.
We recently spent 2 nights there at the end of a lengthy safari
adventure and it was the perfect send-off for our trip. The setting
is wonderful as is the cabin. It is large and well furnished and
affords excellent views of the landscape while maintaining your
privacy. We had a lower unit which worked well for us "seniors."
We checked out the cabins on the upper lever &, while providing
a beautiful vista, we were happy with our cabin situation closer
to the main lodge. Emma and Anton are perfect hosts. Anton
joined us for several meals & arranged for a wonderful dinner
on the lawn while we listened to a hippo and many buffalo graze
not far away. The other staff members are equally personable
and made us feel quite at home. Our thanks to Chris with whom
we exchanged "war stories" over a drink And, our thanks to
Elizaban who handled the airport transfers and park game drives.
He also drove us to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, one of
many unforgettable experiences on the trip. We will certainly
recommend Emakoko to family/friends traveling to the area and
we hope to return in a few years. Thanks Anton and good luck
on the soccer field.
