Keekorok Lodge

Whenever you call for a Kenya Safari vacation then you'll likely travel to the Masai Mara Reserve, and if you do, then you had better choose Keekorok Lodge for your accommodation..

Keekorok Lodge is placed very close to the margin with Tanzania, and is in the ideal place to witness the origin of the Great Migration in late June/July, when the Wildebeest and Zebra commence their outstanding trek.



Among the reasons that Keekorok inn is a smashing place to be is because it's among the most aged Kenya Safari Holiday Lodges, so it's set in just the right place in the direct route of the migration.

Once the heavy migration is at its peak sometime from August to November, it's totally surrounded by animals, a genuinely awesome experience.

Keekorok bears prominent and good-looking grounds, and it has been freshened up recently, with 100 rooms in bungalows, single storey blocks, as well as comfortable chalets with big private verandas.

They're all well furnished and stylishly decorated with solely the finest materials. The ensuite bathrooms overlook the plains together with the distant hills.



Keekorok possesses a fine swimming pool, which is a good place to unstrain between game drives, a restaurant and a bar, containg a viewing deck over the hippo pool, which is filled with hippos, together with far-reaching walkways granting great viewing from the lodge directly onto the game in the park.



The finest and fastest way to arrive at Keekorok is by light aircraft, which gets in from Nairobi and Mombasa .



Food in the restaurant is of sound quality, and is buffet style, with adorable cakes together with fresh fruit flown in day-after-day from Nairobi. You are able to sit outside on the terrace at the adjoining bar, well protected by the Masai who will as well entertain you. A Kenya Safari vacation without ascertaining the Masai dance is an by all odds incomplete. You might need the Masai guards once you're sitting outside since Keekorok Lodge contains no fences which could from time to time make like quite interesting, but is unquestionably a plus point. You may for instance hear lion chasing zebra outside your room at night!!



You'll ascertain on the game drives in the Masai Mara lions and cheetahs, hyenas, and the vulnerable game they follow, but the actual joy of Keekorok is the wildebeest and hyena during the migration. Whatsoever you do, set up a balloon trip with the champagne breakfast floating over the bulk of wildebeest, which is a genuinely memorable experience.



Besides the balloon trip, it's a good thought to organize your game drives through Keekorok, so you'll be able to be by yourself and family, and not in a minibus which several of the Kenya Safari Tour package vacations organised from home appear to be established around.



To sum up, Keekorok is a great and advanced Lodge in the middle of the Masai Mara, and intrinsically an essential stop on any Kenya Safari Tour. It's large and quite busy compared to other lodges, but if that's what you wish as part of your Kenya vacation then you'll love it very much indeed. It's well managed, comfortable with first-class service.
