Rekero Camp is quite simply in the best spot for viewing the Great Migration, when vast herds of wildebeest enter Kenya on their long trek through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. Close to the Talek and Mara rivers in the south of the Maasai Mara, Rekero lies in the heart of one of the most game-rich areas the Reserve has to offer, with a remarkable abundance and variety of year-round wildlife and spectacular scenery.Rekero is an intimate, comfortable and relaxed riverside safari camp where you are enfolded by the surrounding African wilderness. Hippos grunt in the pools below, the smell of wild sage drifts through the air and herds of wildebeest often can be seen crossing the Talek River from the main deck. This blissful location means that fantastic game viewing can continue, even when relaxing in camp. The friendly and highly skilled camp crew have worked together for many years; together with our internationally recognised guiding team, they create a truly insightful safari experience every time.
Rekero Camp is sited in a dramatic location in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, close to both the Talek and Mara rivers. The tented camp is spread down the river from a large bend in the river to an ancient wildebeest crossing point which sits in front of a large mess tent.
The seasonal camp is family- run and owned and is open all year except during April and May. The camp is small and intimate with all the right ingredients for a wonderful Kenya honeymoon retreat. The service is excellent, the dining out of this world and the guiding fantastic.
Rekero Tented Camp offers Masai Mara accommodation in 9 guest tents, 2 of which are family tents. All the tents have river facing verandas and en-suite bathrooms with safari bucket showers and flush toilets. Each tent comes with a personal steward and solar lighting is provided 24 hours a day.
The shared areas of this intimate safari camp in Kenya are centred on a pretty lawn which slopes gently from the lounge and mess tent to the riverbank, with informal, natural tropical gardens all around. Guests can take a tangible reminder of their stay when they buy a souvenir from the gift shop.
Game viewing is mostly by vehicle, and the knowledge of the local guides is such that guests from Rekero Camp are not likely to encounter other tourists during their stay. Guests can also enjoy walking safaris, balloon rides and visits to local communities.
