Kenya

Rekero Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Perched above the mighty Talek River in the game-rich Maasai Mara National Reserve, Rekero Camp offers the glamour and romance of the traditional safari camps of a bygone era.

Laid along the river’s edge under the shade of the trees, accommodations at the camp consist of nine spacious, canvas tents. Designed in a classic safari style with a modern twist, each tent features an en suite bathroom with a flush toilet, hot water, and bucket shower. There are two larger family tents with separate bedrooms to accommodate up to five family members. For even more luxury and panoramic views of the river and bush, the tents include a private veranda complete with a plush daybed or couch for lounging on. The camp is run on a combination of solar and generator power with battery charging facilities. Complimentary laundry service is also available.

The camp is located close to the Talek and Mara rivers in the south of the Maasai Mara, one of the most game-rich areas the Reserve has to offer. An age-old crossing point on the Talek River is just 492 feet away from the dining area. This river and the Mara are where thousands of wildebeests traverse the water while trying to avoid Nile crocodiles and strong currents on their journey north. The Maasai Mara enjoys a rich density of wildlife including elephants, buffaloes, cheetahs, warthogs, zebras, giraffes, hippos, and armadillos. With a large population of big cats, the Reserve has been the place to film documentaries including B.B.C.’s Big Cat Diaries and Disney’s African Cats. As well as the resident Rekero pride, the neighboring Marsh pride is world famous.

Perfectly located, the camp has a wealth of activities to choose from. Morning and afternoon game drives are led by experienced Il Dorobo and Maasai guides. The closed game-viewing vehicles with rooftop hatches that allow people to stand up and are equipped with power-points for recharging devices. Horse riding safaris are an exciting way to explore the bush from the top of a saddle. Hot air balloon rides provide an aerial view of the Reserve as the animals roam below. Cultural visits take in the local Maasai villages with opportunities to learn more about their rich traditions and way of life. Bush picnics and lunches are available. Guests can view the lions made famous by the B.B.C. and Disney while learning from a Kenyan Wildlife Trust researcher about efforts to protect them.

A relaxed riverside camp, it has won several TripAdvisor and Safari Awards. A comfortable, open-air lounge complete with deep chairs and couches affords views of the river as hippos grunt in the pool below, the delightful smell of sage wafting through the air. Delicious meals are served communal style and include home-baked breads, muffins, and biscuits. A full English breakfast is a great start to the day followed by a light, buffet-style lunch, and ending with a three-course silver service dinner under the open skies.
