Soon after you pass Narok, a 100 km of unpaved, dusty, dry soil road brings you to this lodge in Masai Mara. A welcome drink and wet towel is offered on welcome. The property is unfenced, hence hippos and elephants frequently make visits. The cottages have a rustic look. There,s a kettle and tea coffee in the room. The meals... More

The grounds and layout of the lodge were very lovely. Well appointed rooms with comfy beds and cute back porch sitting area to observe animals... Bath room a bit on the rustic side but I guess that was the look they were going for. You have to become use to the turning off of the electric from 11pm until 6... More

Nice place set inside the Mara reserve. Loved the hippo pool where you can watch hippos and enjoy a drink. In the evening these hippos come out and you can see them as the place is well lit. Food is average to good, staff very warm. They do a Masai dance every evening which is good.

The lodge and it's atmosphere were lovely. The rooms were a trifle small but it's not too bad considering the price difference between Keekorok and other Mara lodges. Having heard slightly negative things about the quality of food, I was suitably impressed; whilst nothing special, it is actually quite good, and can thoroughly recommend a trip to the stir-fry bar....

Our stay at Keekorok Lodge was excellent with one minor exception. The food service needs tweaking. More flavor, more choices. The rooms and employees were excellent. I really enjoyed all of the Maasai Warriors that worked in the lodge and provided services to the guest. The location of the lodge was excellent. The distance to the wildlife (and the Tanzania...

Stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed the place. Food section was good. Game drives were good since its right in the middle of the game park. Fantastic bird life makes it wonderful. Meeting Masai was not so good since they have become very professional in their approach. It looks more like a staged drama rather than actual warrior tribe.... More

We don't travel for the food so this isn't a huge deal for us but our party of 12 to a person thought the food was incredibly average to below average based on the places we had been the previous 3 weeks in Kenya and the price we paid to stay here. The cottages were ok, the location in the... More

The rooms were amazing, the wildlife was right outside your doors, and the staff was friendly and attentive. Worth going to over and over again! The game drives were incredible during the morning and the evening hours. The village was a must see.
