Keekorok Game Lodge was opened in 1965 and lies at the southern end of Masai Mara National Reserve, approximately 280 kilometres from Nairobi. It is sited in the direct path of the annual migration and was the first lodge to be built in the Mara. At the height of the migration, Keekorok is surrounded by a swarming mass of animals and there is hardly need to go on a game drive. Keekorok's charm lies in the liberal use of local building materials. Sand stone, cedar wood and other indigenous materials are used in all rooms and public areas. In front of the lodge there is a 300m elevated walkway that meanders through a small riverine forest to a small bar at one end. This overlooks a dam where resident hippo and other game are regularly seen. There are no fences around Keekorok and it is not uncommon to see elephant and buffalo on the perimeter of the grounds or even strolling in. Though there are watchmen on the constant look out!
There are 10 single rooms, 74 twin rooms and 1 junior suite. Rooms are all en suite and in bungalows, single storey blocks and comfortable shaded chalets. The liberal use of cedar, pink and grey sand river stone and other indigenous building materials off set the green lawns and colourful bougainvillea. The Lodge has been refurbished and some areas rebuilt after a fire in 2005.
