Keekorok Lodge is located on an 80 acre site in the southern region of Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve, surrounded by an area of lush grassland and permanent springs.
As one of the first properties to open within the Reserve over 40 years ago, Keekorok Lodge was placed in an enviable position in the direct path of the incredible Great Wildebeest Migration. This spectacular event of nature brings thousands of wildebeest, other plains game and their predators into the area each year between July and October.
Having retained its historic charm of years gone by, Keekorok Lodge nowadays provides all the modern amenities expected of a good safari lodge with comfortable rooms and high levels of service.
Keekorok means “place of black trees” in the local Maasai language and is in an area where there is an abundance of animals. At any time of year the surrounding landscape is teeming with wildlife, including examples of all of Africa’s Big Five, many other mammals and reptiles and over 485 bird species.
Providing an ideal base for anyone requiring mid-priced accommodation for a Maasai Mara safari, this lodge can be booked as part of a Kenya safari by road or including flights to the nearby Keekorok airstrip.
