There is little in this great wilderness that we have not come to know in the three generations of the Beaton family that have lived here. Reinforced by a two generation partnership with the Looseyia family we have learned to respect this land and within that have delivered one of Africa’s finest marriages of wildlife, culture and visitors.
The success of Rekero is partly due its strong relationship with its neighbours. This strong bond and our successes in poverty reduction has been recognised by some of the world’s leading conservationists. By using tourism to reduce poverty and introduce the benefits of conservation to communities has to be our proudest achievement.
• Rekero Camp (and the Beaton and Looseyia families) were pioneers in using tourism to
reduce poverty by providing employment to local communities.
• The team behind Rekero Camp was instrumental in setting up the Koiyaki Guiding School
the aim being to provide local Maasai with employment opportunities within the tourism
industry. Rekero continues to support the school, donating funds, sponsoring and employing
students, and continuing their training following graduation.
• We actively fundraise and donate funds to Ngousani Primary School, and have provided
bursaries for more than 20 children.
• Rekero Camp aspires to leave behind nothing but footprints. Sustainable operations include
recycling rainwater and all waste products.
