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!"

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!"

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."

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."
