Keekorok Lodge

Keekorok Lodge

Keekorok Lodge is very near the Tanzanian border, and is ideally situated for the beginning of the Great Migration of Wildebeest and Zebra in late June (*if* you're lucky) and July.
It is one of the oldest safari lodges in Kenya, so benefits from an ideal location, and extensive grounds with mature shady trees, like these acacia tortilis, the yellow-barked 'fever' trees. A special feature is the waterhole with a boardwalk and sundowner bar. You can see different things every time you walk round!
Keekorok Lodge The photo above shows the restaurant and shop area, and left is one of the older cottages; there is also a newer wing.
This was a Block Lodge, but it is now under new management, who, on the evidence of a short visit in 2006, ave carried out considerable upgrading.
Pork Chop at Keekorok Lodge In 2002, a special feature of the lodge was a young Warthog named "Pork Chop". She was rescued as a very young piglet and brought up by the wife of one of the balloon pilots. She was perfectly tame, and was patient with people stroking her, but she wasn't exactly affectionate!
