Rekero Camp

Rekero Camp is situated in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve which is renowned for the Great Migration that occurs annually. What makes Rekero special is that it’s the nearest camp to the Talek and Mara Rivers where all the action unfolds, with the dining area of the camp only a mere 150 meters from the Talek River.

The position is ideal to spot the teeming wildlife, such as wildebeest and zebra, as they migrate on their annual journey across crocodile-infested waters. The camp has been known to be surrounded by wildebeest and there are three regular river crossing points in the area.

Head out on game drives and walking safaris to spot the excellent year-round wildlife (the camp is closed from March to May during Kenya’s ‘long rains’ season), as well as the spectacular annual Migration. Species you can look forward to seeing include lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, occasional rare black rhino, and hippo. Look out for the superb birdlife or visit the local Maasai communities to learn about local traditions and cultures.

Rekero has lovely communal areas, a safari shop selling tasteful items from local artisans and a dedicated Wi-Fi tent. The camp boasts nine large, comfortably furnished and well-equipped safari tents. Each tent is furnished with twin or double beds and an exclusive en suite bathroom. The camp offers power from a solar inverter system, while kerosene lamps provide a romantic glowing atmosphere.

Activities offered from camp: Game drives; bush picnics; guided safari walks and hot air ballooning.
