Overview of Emboo River Camp

As a carbon-neutral ecolodge, Emboo River Camp offers a safari expedition like no other. Boasting solar-powered electric vehicles, you’ll explore the highest concentration of wildlife in the world at Masai Mara National Reserve with a green-conscious approach. Behold the sight of large herds of elephants and buffalo crossing the river in thunderous droves, while quieter sightings of small packs of predators slink through the high grass, stalking their prey.

The camp blends modern stylings and designs with safari-chic thatched and canvas rooms on raised wooden platforms. Rooms are sublimely situated for you to gaze down upon the sprawling river as hippos, with their throaty grunts, wade through the water. The facilities also offer the dream destination for wedding ceremonies against the romantic backdrop of the sun setting over vast plains dotted with acacia trees.

Emboo River Camp offers the ultimate safari getaway, with a host of year-round activities. Spend your days on aerial safaris in a hot air balloon or traverse the savannah landscape on horseback. Bush walks and cultural tours also offer laid-back options steeped in the natural wonders of Kenya.
