I believe the Keekorok Lodge was the first lodge ever built in the Mara dating back to 1962. It is still a very nice facility with a wonderful rustic ambiance. The common areas are quite lovely and the staff is always very willing to please. The centralized location makes for an easy drive to any of the various eco-areas east of the Mara River including the game-filled hilly areas to the east of the lodge and the vast open plains to the north. We experience all five of the Big Five animals our first morning we were there!!
My only complaint with this lodge was the lack of hot water to our room (#42). With that said, we did have the furthest room from the main lodge areas. Please be very specific that you will only accept a room close in! Food was decent and plentiful and the bar served great cocktails and very fine cold Tusker beer. This lodge is a good choice for families or couples. I want to thank the folks at JT Safaris for their help with organizing our booking for this Jan 2014 photo safari holiday. It was fantastic!!
