Keekorok Lodge Game Viewing and Activities
Unfenced, the Mara borders the Ngama Hills in the east and the Siria Escarpment in the west. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and where prey is found so are predators. The famous black-maned Mara lions are possibly the stars of the Mara show. In earlier times the Masai were renowned lion killers and it is said that if lions scent approaching Masai on the breeze they move swiftly in the opposite direction. Cheetah, elephant, kongoni, topi, Thompson's gazelle, waterbuck, hyena and the primates can also be found roaming the Masai Mara. The southern end of the Masai Mara National Reserve is the ideal area to witness the annual Migration of wildebeest and zebra. There is always activity around the waterhole but during the Migration, Keekorok Lodge is enveloped by the swarming mass of animals. One need hardly venture from the ground to view game.
