KEEKOROK LODGE - MAASAI MARA, KENYA

KEEKOROK LODGE - MAASAI MARA

Keekorok Lodge was opened in 1965 and lies at the southern end of Masai Mara Reserve,  approximately 280 kms from Nairobi. Keekorok Lodge is sited in the direct path of the annual wildebeest migration and was the first lodge to be built in the Mara. At the height of the wildebeest migration, Keekorok Lodge is surrounded by a swarming mass of animals and there is hardly need to go for a game drive. Keekorok Lodge'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. Accommodation at Keekorok Lodge is in bungalows, single storey blocks and in comfortable shaded chalets.

A 300m walkway meanders through the riverine forest in front of Keekorok Lodge with a small bar at one end overlooking a dam where the resident hippo, if he is not on walk about finds his observers as fascinating as they find him.

Mt.Kenya

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain at 5,199m (17,058 feet) and the highest of all Kenya Mountains. Mount Kenya is roughly circular, about 60km across at the 200mm contour, where the steep font hills rise out of the gentler slopes of the centered highlands. At the centre of the massif, the main peaks rise sharply from around 4,500m to the main summit of Batian 5,199m, Nelion 5,188m and point Lenana 4,985m. Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the three main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers.

Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro stands on featureless part of the East African plateau, on the Tanzanian side of the Kenya border near Moshi, side by side with the smaller Mount Meru. These mountains are extinct volcanoes, with Kilimanjaro actually being the agglomeration of three distinct volcanoes, Kibo (5896m/ 19,340 ft), Mwenzi (5,149 / 16,896 ft) and Shira (3,962m / 13,000 ft). whose violent creation is geologically associated with the creation of the Great Rift Valley, 100km to the West.

Mount Meru is Mount Kilimanjaro's little sister, standing at 4,566m compared to 5,895m, but is still an impressive freestanding volcano, which makes a superb four day climb to the top. It last erupted in 1910 therefore can be classified as an active volcano. The first Mount Meru ascent was made by Dr. Fritz Jaeger, 1904. The town of Arusha lies at the base of Mount Meru Trekking, loads of trek companies do this trek. Wild animals are frequently found on this mountain therefore an armed ranger usually accompanies the trekkers.
