Rekero Camp is situated in a dramatic location on the Talek River in the world-famous Masai Mara nature reserve. The area plays host not only to an extraordinary concentration and diversity of wildlife but also to one of mother nature’s greatest spectacles: the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra across the Serengeti/Mara eco-system. When the migration is not here there is plenty of resident game to ensure that even in low season it is still one of the finest wildlife locations in Africa.
Rekero’s bush guides are widely recognised to be among the best in East Africa. They undergo a long period of professional training beyond the learning of guiding skills to fully understand the complexity and demands of delivering quality service at the very highest level. Game drives in the park are all done in the company of these experts who can also share their culture in this extraordinary setting.
This long established 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. Every year the camp is closed for two months to allow the bush and the many wildlife neighbours to return to the site leaving a fresh and recovered wilderness for the next dramatic season.
Rekero is a tented camp that is set up seasonally (June – March) and caters for up to 22 guests in nine tents of which two are family tents. All the tents have terraces overlooking the Talek River and en-suite bathrooms with flush loos and safari showers. From a small camp on a shady bank of the Talek River you are in the heart of a plain which sees much of the wildlife action. In our camp you are in the care of the natural guardians of this fine wilderness and those born and raised on these plains. Through them there is the opportunity to be part of a personal wildlife experience in a special place that we are proud to call ‘home’.
