Flawless Hospitality

Just returned from a first visit to Kenya, had never been on safari and was blown away, first by the wildlife - location is fantastic; we only stayed two nights but were lucky to see the Big 5 - but just as memorably by Rekero. Without exception, the staff offer an ideal blend of attentiveness and relaxed vibes. Everyone was so kind and knowledgeable, especially our assigned Masai guide. The food was gourmet-like, and our tent and the common facilities were elegant yet not too much. Breakfast overlooking the river or packed if you do an early morning game drive, 1pm lunch, 4:30pm tea, 8pm dinner and ample time for game drives, chatting with fellow guests and resting in between. Rekero has it figured out. The staff clearly take pride in what they do, with many having worked there for years. I could go on and on... Simply put, if you go on safari in Kenya, book Rekero!"

I wished We Would Have Stayed Longer!

This was my first time at a camp during a wildlife safari trip. I didn't really know what to expect. The whole experience was brilliant. We had a room right beside the river and the natural sound of the flowing water and the view was amazing. At night, a hippo was right beside our tent. The atmosphere at the camp was extremely friendly and the staff very attentive. I wished we would have stayed longer! The wildlife around the area was spectacular, it is impossible to describe how brilliant the animals in their natural environment were. Highly recommended!"

All About The Safari

Rekero is one of my favorite destinations in Kenya. The small camp is located in an oasis of animals on a beautiful viewing spot that has water during the raining season.
Safari's will not disappoint. I have been to this camp 3 times at various seasons. The service and food is excellent and safety is a priority. The actual tent is very inviting and comfortable. If you desire to see the mirgrati and have a superior location for viewing, you should strongly consider the camp and book about a year in advance, they are usually full and have 70% repeat clients, so you can imagine how great it is!"

Incredible Sights, Fabulous Staff- Amazing!

The animals were abundant. The scenery amazing. We loved the tents. Bucket showers were super. Escorts with spears at night was great! Elegant tent camping! Tent was very well made- felt secure, private and netting on windows kept all bugs out. Elephants and baboons munching around your tent night and day! Guides were fabulous. We requested guide to take us to a Masai village- highly recommend to learn about their culture. Lovely setting in the bush on an active river. We spent three nights- I would have loved to stay longer, but no time. Staff were very kind. We hope to go back!"

Wonderful Camp!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. Conway and Clea and the staff of mostly Masai people are outstanding. Our guide Martin was exceptional, not only in finding and identifying all kinds of fauna, but in his interest in African history. The Masai Mara area has an extraordinary number and variety of animals, and it is very beautiful, especially along the Mara River. The visit to a Masai village was fascinating and we strongly recommend it. The setting of our tent #5 was stunning, overlooking the Telek River where we saw elephants, crocs, hippos and various antelope right from our front door. The camp food is terrific, with a fine selection of wines. Of the 8 camps we have stayed in, this is one of the best!"

Magical Place

This was my second time at Rekero camp and it was just as amazing if not even better. Since my last visit all tents have been renewed and are more spacious and luxurious and very comfortable. There is also an additional lounge area with a deck right by the river which is really nice. Rekero Camp is the home away from home. The managers and other staff are truly amazing in making your stay very special. The food was excellent and the game drives with my guide Sammy very special. His knowledge is great and he told me a lot about his culture which is very interesting. This time I combined Rekero Camp with Naboisho Camp in the Naboisho Conservancy which was the perfect combination! I would always come back to this special place right at the Talek river."

A Must Visit!

One of the best places I have stayed on many different levels. Service faultless from management down (and I am pretty critical in this area). Furthermore, everyone is a character - the askaris are great fun, the guide (ours was Daniel) was the best I have come across out of the three safaris I have been on. We were the first to the game most times.
Food fantastic - tasty and delicious. I think all the food was based on local specialities or derivatives thereof.
Tents extremely comfortable and you have everything you want. It is a great experience - you are almost certainly going to eye ball a hippo or elephant from a few paces if you do.
Game drives spot on - we saw everything, breakfasts in the bush every day, sundowners in secluded spots and a guide who truly knows every animal, bird and sound however far away.
Finally Location - I can't see how you are going to find better in the Mara. Next to a river, secluded but with game all around you - just perfect.

To sum up, if you want a true safari experience where you are in the thick of the action during the day and the night and you value exceptional service, great food and wine, then look no further."

Wonderful Experience

I cannot fault Rekero camp, site, accommodation, nor the staff & guide. All were fantastic! The tent was a dream, the food heavenly & plentiful, our Maasai guide, Martin, was so knowledgeable, his English so good & his manner so polite. He knew about everything, plants, birds, animals, habitat, & more, I learned SO MUCH! We even discussed philosophy... hmmmm. I saw all the Big 5 + much much more. I have incredible memories & astounding photos! I loved every minute of my 4 days there & would LOVE to go back!"

Photographers stay at Rekero

As a serious amateur wildlife photographer, I got exactly what I wanted: 4 fantastic days with hot coffee in my luxurious tent at 6am, escorted to my vehicle by 6:30 for first light photo opportunities with my driver/guide Martin and spotter Risa. I thought I was pretty good at spotting game but these two had me feeling like a beginner, they were excellent."

Jackson Looseyia: most highly respected

The Maasai Mara is one of luckiest National Reserves in Kenya. With the Serengeti on the south and to its north seven well managed conservancies it is at the very heart of one of the world’s greatest ecosystems. However the human encroachment, through both tourism and pastoral, continues to threaten the reserve. These conservancies are the best thing I have seen in 20 years. It clearly shows and is proving daily that by reversing the destruction of habitat that we can bring back the glory of our childhood."
