Take a game drive into one of the most unique game parks in the world, Nairobi National Park or visit the community that border it. Otherwise an excursion into Nairobi to visit the David Sheldrick wildlife trust, the giraffe centre or the local shops may be more appealing. Finally for the more adventurous, a helicopter trip to the world famous Masai Mara, or up Mt. Kenya might be the better alternative.
The Emakoko Reviews
“Delicious food, wonderful hosts, amazing location – the rooms are amazing – we had number 9 – great views and felt quite secluded – well worth the 130 steps up! It rained a little whilst we were there, but that didn’t stop the beauty of the place captivating us.” – ChristinaSLacey
“Home from Home – a brilliant oasis to relax in after a hectic safari before journeying home. Service was excellent. This was our fifth stay and it won’t be our last! Service with a smile! Antony always has stories to tell and is a great host.” – Carole N
