Keekorok Lodge has been welcoming guests to the Masai Mara for over 50 years. One of Africaâ€™s most famous wildlife reserves, the Masai Mara is home to millions of plains game and their predators, and is especially well-known for its big cat sightings. From July to October the spectacle of the annual migration in the Mara is one of the worldâ€™s best known wildlife events.
Keekorok has 101 en-suite rooms in stone-built bungalows, each with private verandahs some of which look over the reserve, and others that face the large gardens.
There is a swimming pool, and also a permanent watering hole which is home to hippos and regularly visited by elephants and lions. Donâ€™t get them confused!
Game drives in the reserve are taken twice daily â€“ in the early morning and in the afternoon. Your professional guide will try to show you as many as possible of the animals youâ€™re hoping to see, and explain about the flora and fauna of this impressive wilderness. There is also the possibility to take full day game drives with a picnic.

"A very different experience to the previous two venues. To be honest, had i known it was so much more \'commercial\' i wouldnt have made this choice. Accomodation and service was all very good. A good selection in the dining room for all meals. GAme drives seemed to s#be set early morning and then late afternoon leaving you with little to do during the day. We made a request for a longer drive on the second day which was granted - so this was great. The majority of the staff were very professional and helpful. A few of the dining room staff were rather iserable and seemed as if things were too much trouble. The reception and bar staff were brilliant and very friendly "
