Keekorok Lodge was very welcoming and the staff are superbly trained and helpful. The food was generally excellent but when supplies run low as they must do so far out in the bush they still came up with a very acceptable meal even though we were four hours late in arriving. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. We were upgraded to a lodge on arrival and our room was lovely, very quiet and secluded. The food was a little hit and miss, but inevitable when trying to cater for so many different cultures. The freshly made chappatis however were amazing! The hippo pool was a great twist. Staff were... More

I spent two nights here in May on a private safari. The ride out here is quite an experience but Masai Mara and Keekorok are worth the drive. I booked through Lion Trails Safaris so I do not know the price I paid but as a single it was a bit expensive for my overall trip....not that I'm complaining because... More

We were here 3 nights. The room was nice, The Hippo bar a fun sight. This is a small bar on a suspended boardwalk almost over an active hippo pool. Lots of other animals and birds to see, too. No pressure to buy a drink. So what's the problem? The dining room buffet was a bit like feeding the hogs.... More

Rooms are very old and dated - needing a good clean, restaurant offers 2* comfort. Buffet lacks any quality ingredients, e.g. breakfast orange juice is orange squash, 'chicken' sausages !! and bacon you'd not feed to a dog. Lunch and Dinner are also buffet style equally as awful. There was no Tusker or other form of beer available to buy... More

This was a lovely venue, the safari across the Masai Mara was amazing and Keekorak is right in the heart of the animal action. Staff could not have done more to make stay special. Food was excellent, and Masai warrior dancing every night was special. One small annoyance was the lack of good quality wine at a reasonable price.

After returning last week from keekorok we had the most amazing time. The game drives were excellent and all the staff at keekorok Were very kind. the rooms are a nice standard for the hotel. Loved everything about it. The only part I would say need to be improved is the food options. It was mainly Indian found so found... More

The Masai mara is the 'jewel in the crown' when it comes to safaris and this, the oldest lodge in the park, is right in the heart of it. We were here for two nights. It's a long, bumpy ride on dusty tracks to get here but the rewards are well worth it. Animals come and go here and you... More
