Spent 3 nights here. Staff is excellent especially the restaurant hostess. Great service in the bar as well. The lodge shows its age but you have to remember how remote you are. The centralized location in the Masai Mara Park makes up for any short comings. The grounds are lovely and very well kept. The walkway to the hippo pool and bar is a great and unique addition. Rooms are clean. Electricity is available most of the day and we enjoyed the wall mounted fan at night. Restaurant food is just okay. Again, this is a remote location. There is variety so we always found something to eat. Lots of animal noises at night but that's part of the excitement!

I and my wife stayed at this lodge for 2 nights. This lodge is located in the best place in heart of Masai Mara national reserve. One of advantages of this lodge is a pond with many Hippos in it. Rooms are clean with beautiful decoration. Staff are friendly and polite and ready to assist. Breakfast is OK but variety of foods for lunch and dinner is not sufficient, especially lack of Halal foods for Muslim travelers is a negative point. Shower water is not hot enough too.

This lodge is in the perfect location for Maasi Mara Safaris. We were very lucky to have Joshua for our guide. He was awesome. His eyesight was so Sharpe he could see animals in the distance without binoculars. Our room was lovely right by the main building. The staff make this place. Helpful and the good was good. We would recommend.

Stayed here for three nights and had an amazing time. We stayed in a chalet room and highly recommend - we were at the edge of the resort and found this meant we had a fair bit of wandering wildlife passing by which added to the experience for us. Having read reviews we were a little worried the report may be a little tired, and whilst the actual building are older, important aspects have been refurbished, eg. sinks, toilets etc and the bed linen and towels are good quality. Also lots of nice touches, like toiletries and robes and slippers. Staff were all incredibly friendly and would recommend this place without a doubt. Our only issue was fresh food was clearly running out. Our first few meals were lovely, but as our stay progressed there was less for vegetarians to pick from and a noticeable lack of fresh food (e.g. no fresh veg pulses instead) and they even ran out of fresh fruit, which was disappointing as the fresh fruit for the first couple of days was a highlight for me. We had Joseph as our safari guide and he was great - each drive was different and we saw so much! Everything in our wish list and more. We flew in to Maasai Mara and would recommend this, lodge is super close to air strip, so you really maxims your time, and you can even spot wildlife on the 5 min drive from airstrip to lodge. Would happily recommend and stay again.

The Keekorok is one of the best places we have ever stayed. And though the lodge is excellent the reason is of course mostly the Masai Mara National Reserve and its amazing wild-life. Simply wow! The only thing missing at the Keekorok in my point of view is better coffee (espresso, please). :-)
