The wafting scents of wild sage drifting through the Rekero Hillls greet you at Rekero Camp, with lookouts over the Talek and Mara Rivers, in the southern portions of the Maasai Mara. With Ol Kiombo landing strip less than half an hour away by car, the camp is very accessible. In August, when the Great Migration of wildebeest occurs, guests can see the chaotic, thundering hooves of thousands of wildebeest cross the two rivers as they head back north. What’s more, one of the main crossing points lies less than 200 metres from the camp’s dining area.
Choose from one of the 9 simple, yet decadent tents, where a unique view of the Talek river is guaranteed to all guests. Designed with the classical tans and cream colours of colonial safaris, yet dashed with modern touches, each tent is a meeting of tradition and contemporary comfort. The en-suite bathrooms have flushing toilets and hot bucket showers, whilst the day bed and sofas offer a place to enjoy the afternoons in quiet harmony with nature.
The camp uses a combination of generator and solar power to meet all of your needs. There’s always a recharge facility for your electronic devices and a laundry service should you desire it. Children over the age of 5 are more than welcome at Rekero, and the camp is appropriate for disabled guests.
Wildlife and Activities
The facilitated sunrise and sunset safaris are resplendent with sightings of elephant, leopard, lion, cheetah, buffalo, serval and caracal. Allow your experienced guides to teach you the lore of the land or the hidden details in a spoor print left on the sand. Take a breakfast picnic in the refreshing warmth of a Kenyan dawn. Film crews frequent Rekero Camp for the regular footage of wild game they need. This is another reason why the area’s incredibly rich concentration of diverse wildlife guarantees a safari experience like no other.
Additionally, guests looking for even more action can take a hot air balloon ride over the plains and visit the local, thriving communities. There’s never a dull moment at Rekero Camp.
