Keekorok Mara Lodge is located in the direct path of the wildebeest migration, and it was the first lodge to be built in the Masai Mara. At the height of the migration, the area around Keekorok Lodge is surrounded by animals which you can view from the lodge itself especially from the walkway leading out into the open area near the lodge.
The Keekorok lodge has undergone significant refurbishment in recent years. Keekorok's charm is its setting, its ease of access from Nairobi and the liberal use of local sand river stone and cedar wood for its construction, and other indigenous building materials that offset the green lawns and colourful bougainvillea.
The keekorok’s beautiful lounge is tastefully furnished in leather and tartan and with the dining room terrace opening up to the Mara plains, allowing fresh breezes and views of the Mara wilderness. Rooms at the Keekorok lodge are simply but tastefully furnished, many with views of the Mara.
Early morning and afternoon game drives offer animal encounters unparalleled in the
world all the year round. Species recorded in the Masai Mara include; 95 species of mammals, amphibians & reptiles and over 400 bird species. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife this abundant.
The Keekorok Mara Lodge is carefully nestled directly on the Wildebeest migration path on the south eastern part of the Masai Mara right on the banks of the sand river.
