Amidst the teeming mass of wildlife in the Masai Mara area, Rekero Camp is currently inside the Masai Mara Game reserve, very close to the confluence of the Mara and Talek rivers. This seasonal Eco-camp is ideally situated for the annual migration, which is the movement of over one million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebra from the Serengeti through the Masai Mara in Kenya.
This Masai Mara Bush Camp is set up seasonally (June - October, December - March) and caters for up to eighteen guests. Gerard and Rainee Beaton along with their partner Jackson Ole Looseyia own and host this unique camp. Their team of professional Masai safari guides and camp crew have worked together for years, providing guests with an in depth and truly memorable Masai Mara experience.
Rekero Camp’s nine spacious tents are laid out along the river’s edge under a network of shady trees. Designed in classic safari style with a fresh, contemporary edge, each tent has an en-suite bathroom with hot-water safari bucket shower and flushing toilet.
To make them even more comfortable, each tent has a large private veranda with an inviting day bed or couch where you can take in a view of the river.
Delicious home-cooked meals are usually enjoyed communally. The chefs prepare all meals in camp, and bake fresh bread, biscuits and muffins daily.
Breakfast is a tempting buffet-style spread – choose from a Continental or a full English breakfast.
Light, buffet-style lunches in camp include fresh salads and vegetables with your main course (alternatively, ask for a picnic breakfast or lunch so you can maximise your time in the bush).
Tea and cake at 4pm are a camp tradition just before going out on your game drive.
Dinner is a three-course silver service or plated affair.
There is 24 hr power to provide lighting through a solar powered inverter system. Power is available to charge any electrical items from a central point.
Kerosene lanterns are situated in front of the tents to provide subtle lighting to the exterior and front. Mobile phones do work intermitantly in Rekero Camp but we ask that you use them discreetly.
Note; There are no power sockets in the tents.
Game drives; Wildlife viewing and birdwatching game drives – in the expert company of experienced Il Dorobo and Maasai guides – are offered twice daily from Rekero.
Bush picnics; Maximise your time on the game-filled plains by enjoying a delicious packed breakfast or lunch provided by camp chefs while you’re on the move.
Cultural & community visits; Sharing the cultural aspect of the traditional Maasai way of life is a priority at Rekero. A visit to one of the neighbouring villages, which are home to most of our guides, is a highly personal experience that the guides conduct with sensitivity to ensure it remains both unobtrusive and intimate.
Balloon safaris (at an additional cost); Glide over the rolling plains of the Maasai Mara and the neighbouring conservancies on a romantic and serene hot-air balloon flight, and see the wildlife below from a different perspective.
Protecting the big cats; Here you’ll find the big cats made famous by BBC and Disney. Learn more from a Kenya Wildlife Trust researcher about how we are trying to protect them. (Bookings essential.)
Horse riding; They say four legs are better than two, so what better way to experience the bush than on horseback? Ride out across the open plains with the wind in your hair and watch dazzles of zebra and towers of giraffe from atop your stallion.
Rekero offer two larger family tents with separate bedrooms to accommodate up to five family members. Families of four or more are guaranteed a private safari vehicle at no extra cost in low season. In high season, families with children under 12 are obliged to use a private game-viewing vehicle at an additional cost.
The minimum age at Rekero Camp is five years old and note safety is always a top priority and the wilderness environment here is not conducive to providing a specific outdoor safari programme for children.
