The accommodation was absolutely fantastic and very comfortable. As there were very few people there during our stay, the hosts were very welcoming and extremely attentive, making the whole experience very enjoyable. Their hospitality was faultless. I have travelled to Africa many times, and this stay was excellent throughout.

Rekero camp has that mix of a wonderful location, excellent guiding and game viewing and a team of staff who all want to make your visit memorable. Each day will bring new experiences. Enjoy the views of the river in camp, hear the unforgetable sounds of the African night and be spoilt by the delicious food.

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... More

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... More

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... More

I've been with my wife for two nights in Rekero Camp I can say it was a great experience in my life. The location is the high point of this camp, beautiful view with highly trained staff.

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... More

This is one of my favorite camps in the Mara. We visit some place in Africa every year and this is one of my favorite camps. It gives you the full experience of living in wild with also feeling 100% safe. The tents are spread apart so that you feel that you are alone but there is always scaries near... More

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... More

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.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rekero overlooks an ancient animal river crossing point in the Masai Mara. A front row seat to witness the spectacular annual migration awaits you.Rekero has a long and proud history in the Mara that lends to it a depth of character and low-key authenticity that is the hallmark of this luxury tented camp. Rekero is enfolded in wilderness, the camp nestles under huge deciduous trees, hippos grunt in the pools below the mess deck, the fragrance of wild sage floats on the air and guests can often watch the migration crossing the Talek River just 50 meters from the camp lawn. Warm, hospitable and intimate, with a guiding team widely recognised as being the best in Kenya, Rekero offers an unsurpassed Masai Mara safari experience. ... more   less
