This place is a MUST Stay at the beginning or end of a Safari. Either works but beginning would be recommended. The property literally is directly attached to the Nairobi park and wild animals are at your door! The facility is 5 Star across the board; ambience, meals, accommodations and staff service. We had an absolutely stunning suite(separate building). The deck overlooks wild buffalo, water buck, gazelle, and giraffes. At night a big Hippo grazes on the grass 50 feet from our deck. The food was exceptional and served whenever we arrived from our outings. The hosts/owners, Emma and Anthony, were very involved from when we arrived until when we left. Whatever we needed. This place is a GEM right in the city but totally isolated within the park so it seems like we were in the middle of the safari lands, actually safaris are a regular event at Emakoko, so a perfect place to start a safari. If you are ending a safari, like we were, iut was a perfect place to reflect and enjoy great food, wine and relax, only 40 minutes from the airport Say hi to Lawrence at the bar!
