Fodor's Expert Review Keekorok Lodge
Masai Mara Reserve, Narok, Kenya
The first lodge built in the Masai Mara, Keekorok is an unpretentious lodge with comfortable accommodations. Its superb location—directly in the path of the wildebeest migration—means you won't have to leave camp to see animals galore. You'll stay in a stone chalet or A-frame wood-and-stone bungalow, both tastefully furnished with comfortable beds, mosquito nets, and an en suite old-fashioned white-tile bathroom with bath and overhead shower, and private balcony. Outside there's a small stone veranda with a rustic table and camping chairs. There's a 300-meter (984 feet) raised wooden walkway that leads to a viewing deck with great views of the plains and a hippo pool. The camp is unfenced, so you'll often see elephants and buffalos round its perimeter. Activities include lectures on the Maasai culture, wildlife video viewings, hot-air-balloon rides, tanning by the pool or indulging in the spa.
