At Rekero, Experience The Best Of The Masai Mara At This Intimate Safari Camp
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 River and Talek River. 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 to around 27 guests. Gerard and Rainee Beaton, along with their partner Jackson Ole Looseyia own and host this unique camp.
Their team of professional Maasai safari guides and camp crew have worked together for years, providing guests with an in-depth and truly memorable Masai Mara experience.
Rekero Camp is an intimate and exclusive 9-tented suite luxury camp, providing the perfect haven for those who want to explore the best that the Masai Mara has to offer.
During your stay at Rekero Camp, you will have the opportunity to take part in a number of exciting activities, including game drives, bush walks, cultural visits, and balloon safaris. You will also get to enjoy the company of the local Maasai people, who are proud guardians of this land.
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 a hot-water 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.
Two of the nine tented suites are family units.
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).
High tea and cake around 4 pm are a camp tradition just before going out on your game drive.
Dinner is a three-course silver service or plated affair.
The wine at Rekero Camp is nothing short of spectacular. With a variety of reds and whites to choose from, there is something for everyone. Whether you're looking for a bold red or a crisp white, the wine selection at Rekero Camp is sure to please. A large selection of beer and cool drinks is also available throughout the day and night.
There is 24 hr power to provide lighting through a solar-power inverter system. Power is available to charge any electrical items from a central point in the main mess tent area.
Kerosene lanterns are situated in front of the tents to provide subtle lighting to the exterior and front. Mobile phones do work intermittently 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 Camp is perfect for families with children in tow; two large family tents with separate bedrooms can accommodate up to five family members in one suite.
Of interest, families of 4x and more are guaranteed a private safari vehicle at no extra cost in the 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, but as the camp is not fenced in, we would suggest a minimum age of 10 years, and the surrounding wilderness environment is not conducive to providing a specific outdoor safari programme for children.
Rekero Camp offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the best of the Masai Mara.
From game drives and bush walks to cultural visits and hot air balloon safaris, there is something for everyone interested in wildlife viewing at Rekero.
Tented accommodation, delicious cuisine, and friendly staff make Rekero a perfect choice for those who want to explore one of Africa's most famous wildlife destinations.

Kenya safari ambassador tributeIn memoriam Honey; Honey was famous for jumping into vehicles to obtain a better view of her idyllic world - the Masai Mara Game Reserve. This special cheetah was killed on the 17th of February 2007 in full view of her three remaining cubs.
Impressions Of KenyaKenya’s wildlife remains at the heart of its attractions, yet there is much more to discover in this fascinating country outside the game reserves. You can climb the slopes of Mount Kenya to find tropical ice on the Equator, or explore the coral reefs of the Mombasa coast.
Explore The Masai Mara By BalloonIt was one of those rare moments where you take in the majesty of nature in complete silence, disturbing nothing, saying nothing. In Kenya last month, I had the great pleasure of a balloon safari over the Masai Mara organised by the excellent and highly professional Governors Company.
Giraffe Manor ReviewLocated in the southern suburbs of Nairobi is an English manor house. When it was built, the country was unclaimed bush rampant with African wildlife. The home of Karen Blixen is nearby who posthumously lends her name to this suburb, Karen.
Hells Gate KenyaI had visions of being trampled by buffalo, stalked by lions, or, given the extreme humidity and daytime temperatures, falling prey to one of the thousands of vultures who call Hell's Gate National Park their home. But our guide assured me that it would be fun.
