Emma and Anthony Childs owns and runs Emakoko They have finally returned home to manage a lodge which is the best of both worlds – bush and city all in one!

A twenty-bed luxury lodge on a 15 acres of land bordering the Nairobi National Park. Artfully built into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River, which borders the Nairobi National Park and the entrance to to the lodge is through the park, which is an ideal way to escape the Nairobi traffic. Great care has been taken to incorporate the beautiful fig trees which grow on the cliff where the lodge is situated. All rooms look straight over the river and into the Park.

The lodge itself is a mere 25- minute game drive from all important locations – Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Wilson Airport and all the main city attractions.

The Emakoko allows people to start and finish their safari in the wildlife environment they have travelled so far to enjoy.

There is also the chance to see our resident hippo, who also likes to keep an eye on you. He can be seen grazing on the lawn outside the rooms in the early evening or the morning.


The Emakoko comprises 10 luxury suites, 5 of which are positioned along the cliff edge and 5 within closer proximity to the river and main lodge area below. While our Cliff Suites boast panoramic views of the vast landscapes, our River Suites are a more convenient option for their easily accessible location.
