Just nine classic tents set amongst the trees overlooking the Talek river
View the Great Migration crossing the river from camp
Game drives in the Masai Mara
When it comes to witnessing the world-famous Great Migration, Rekero is in prime position. Overlooking the Talek River in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, the camp sits next to a main crossing point used by the wildebeest on their epic annual journey.
Guests can watch the herd make this perilous crossing without even leaving the camp. Enjoy this and other wildlife sightings from the comfort of your riverside tent or from one of the two communal decks.
While on a game drive, keep your eyes open for prides of lion waking up for a night of hunting, cheetah scanning the sun-bleached plains from atop a termite mound and elephants drinking at a waterhole. Spend afternoons kicking back with a G&T on the deck to watch the river crossings or stretching out on your private veranda with spectacular views of the herds.
Nine classic, spacious safari tents are set among the trees overlooking the Talek River. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with a flushing toilet and hot-water shower.
Chill out on a daybed on your private veranda for a midday snooze or to watch zebras ambling along the riverbank.
Over a leisurely lunch on the deck, with the scent of wild sage in the air, you may hear hippo grunting in the Talek River below and see herds of wildebeest gathering on the banks, readying themselves to cross the water.
The team at Rekero have worked here for many years and provide exceptional service, while our Maasai guides share their detailed knowledge of their homeland and the animals with which they share it.
Meals are usually enjoyed communally. The chefs are up at dawn busily preparing everything from scratch. For breakfast, they offer either a light continental buffet spread or a full English fry-up, as well as fresh fruit and juices.
At lunch, salads and veggies are served with a main course. If you prefer to stay out in the bush, they can pack a picnic. At 4pm, join other guests for cake and tea or a refreshing iced coffee before your evening drive followed by a three-course dinner upon your return.
Generally, you'll start the day bright and early with a wake-up call and tea or coffee. Enjoy breakfast before you depart for your morning game drive (or have it packed as a picnic to take with you). You head out on your first game drive just as it begins to get light, so time differs slightly depending on the season. If you have booked a private safari vehicle, you can plan a schedule with your guide. Arrive back in camp mid-morning, with a chance to freshen up before lunch.
After a leisurely lunch, enjoy siesta. Read a book or just relax and enjoy the views from your tent or one of our viewing decks. Refuel with afternoon tea before we depart for your evening game drive with sundowners.
You'll be back in time for drinks around the campfire and dinner — the perfect chance to unwind after a long day in the bush.
