About Rekero Camp
Rekero has a long and proud history in the Mara that lends to it a depth of character and low-key authenticity that is the hallmark of this luxury tented camp. Rekero is enveloped in wilderness, the camp nestles under huge deciduous trees, hippos grunt in the pools below the mess deck, the fragrance of wild sage floats on the air and guests can often watch the migration crossing the Talek River just 50 meters from the camp lawn. Warm, hospitable and intimate, with a guiding team widely recognised as being the best in Kenya, Rekero offers an unsurpassed Maasai Mara safari experience.
The camp caters for up to 20 guests in nine tents, two of which are family tents, laid out under shady trees along the river's edge. The spacious tents have been designed in traditional bush style with a fresh modern feel focusing on attention to detail. All tents have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and showers.
Each tent also has a large veranda with a day bed for relaxing after game drives and is attended by a personal butler.
The camp has two common areas under canvas for guest dining and relaxation. The larger area is surrounded by shady trees and lush lawn while the smaller area is built on a platform extending over the river bank.
Rekero Camp is home not only to the greatest concentration and diversity of wildlife in the world, but also to the Beaton and Looseyia families, who continue to oversee Rekero. They ensure that the legacy of their forefathers is upheld and that guests enjoy a truly memorable Maasai Mara experience.
The Maasai Mara Game Reserve and adjacent conservation area totals 750 square-miles and forms the northern tip of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. The Maasai Mara offers wonderful scenery and an amazing abundance of wildlife. Every year it hosts what is now recognised as the greatest show on earth, the Great Migration which takes place between July and October. The Mara River is the greatest obstacle they have to face, the currents can be strong and the banks steep, but it is the gigantic Nile crocodiles that are to be their biggest obstacle. Over a million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebra are on this endless journey in search of fresh grasslands. Typically the herds continue their journey south in November but have been known to stay into January. The Maasai Mara is also home to one of the great fighting tribes of Africa, the Maasai whose culture is both fascinating and unique.
