Emboo River is located in a river bend within the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The rooms have floor-to-ceiling views over the river, so you can spot hippos bathing or elephants drinking right in front of your room.
When the Great Migration passes through the Maasai Mara, 1000s of wildebeest and zebras use a popular river crossing close to the lodge! You will be at the centre of the action.
Go on Game Drives with our Electric Safari Vehicles
Emboo River is the first in the Maasai Mara with Electric Safari Vehicles! The vehicles are silent and do not have exhaust fumes. You can get up close to the animals and enjoy the sounds of nature.
In the Maasai Mara there are so many animals to see throughout the year and Emboo River’s expert guides are happy to show you around! Even within the lodge lucky guests can spot animals, because Emboo River is unfenced and located within a forest.
Did you know that Jonathan and Angela Scott stayed at the lodge while filming Bella the leopard for the BBC documentary “Big Cat Diary”?! The large fig tree in which Bella would be seen, is the centre of Emboo River.
Relax and unwind
In between Game Drives, you will enjoy delicious meals made from fresh and local ingredients. Sit down for a meal in the lodge, or go for a bush meal in the savannah.
Feel like taking a dip? Emboo River has a natural swimming pool. You can also relax during a Spa Treatment, read a book on your terrace or share pictures with your friends through the Wi-Fi. Emboo River offers lots of children’s activities as well.
Leading the game in eco-friendly, sustainable and luxurious lodging
Did you know that Emboo River is a true eco lodge?
Emboo River is working fully on solar power, which is powering the Electric Safari Vehicles! Emboo River also harvests and recycles all water, which is a valuable resource in the Maasai Mara. This has reduced water consumption by 90%! Additionally, Emboo River is closely working with the community as we source materials and ingredients from our neighbours.
Emboo River is located within the Maasai Mara National Reserve, a beautiful park which is part of the same eco system as the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
The Ol Kiombo airstrip is only 10 minutes from the lodge and receives several flights per day. For those travelling via road, Emboo River is located at 20 minutes from
