Situated 150 metres away from a crossing point Rekero Camp is the perfect place to view the Great migration.The camp evokes the charm of African safaris with nine romantic tents and spectacular views of the surrounding game-filled plains.
The surrounding plains are famed for spectacular year-round game viewing. This includes impressive numbers of lion, elephant, giraffe, cheetah, leopard, serval, and buffalo, zebra, and wildebeest. Wildlife activity reaches a peak during the July to October migration.
Communal camp areas include a spacious lounge tent and a mess tent furnished with a large communal dining table and chairs. Outside, there’s an expansive decked area for alfresco eating and a tranquil campfire by the riverbank. Rekero runs on a combination of solar and generator power, with battery charging facilities available in main areas.
Activities include morning and evening game drives, horse riding excursions, and open air bush breakfasts and picnics. Cultural visits provide a great opportunity to meet the inhabitants of local villages and learn about traditional Masai life. Hot air balloon flights can also be arranged, subject to additional cost. Rekero’s location in a prime wildlife area means regular game viewing from the comfort of the camp.
The accommodation comprises nine stylish canvas safari tents flanked by trees along the river bank. Simply and elegantly furnished each tent has a king or twin beds and an ensuite bathroom with washbasin. Outside is a spacious private veranda with lovely river views. A day bed for relaxing and observing the passing wildlife sits on your deck. A complimentary laundry service is provided.
Children aged five years and above are warmly welcome at Rekero. Families with younger children may be accommodated, but this is at the sole discretion of the management. The camp offers two family tents, each sleeping up to five guests in two bedrooms. Families with children under 12 years of age are required to hire a private vehicle and guide during their stay at an additional cost. For families of four or more this charge is relaxed during low season. This is an open camp in a true wilderness environment and wildlife does regularly roam through.

It’s a good idea to make the most of your visit to the Serengeti and the Masai Mara and we always recommend a good combination of lodges for your safari to Africa. Have a look at Encounter Mara Camp or Naboisho in the Naboisho Conservancy where you will find incredibly high lion densities.
