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.
