Book your stay here with confidence; it's one of the top camps in all of Africa!
What makes Rekero so special? First and foremost; the staff. Clea and Conway, the managers, are exceptional in their attention to details. For example, on our first morning there, they set up a private table for two overlooking the river for breakfast. Brilliant!"

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."

Amazing, amazing, amazing
Rekero camp staff made us feel like family, comfortable and safe. The family tent was out of this world with the animals so close at night, the night guides kept us safe. (…) All staff at Rekero are our friends and this experience will remain with our family forever and we plan to return."

One of the best vacations ever
All in all I have to say that all of the 5 star reviews are there for a reason. This camp and the staff are by far the best that I've ever dealt with. I would not only recommend this camp to anyone visiting the Mara, but I plan on returning again in the near future!"

Already planning our return trip
We went snorkelling at Mnemba twice which was superb and also did the private trip which included snorkelling and a beautiful lunch on a private stretch of beach- absolute bliss. All in all, this was one of the best trips we've done and we will definitely be returning. Thank you to all at Matemwe for a brilliant getaway."

Another excellent Asilia Camp
The more remote location of this camp gets you away from all the other safari vehicles but the game viewing is still outstanding. We saw everything but a wildebeest river crossing during our stay."

Lessons from humanity
Ubuntu means "humanity" in Swahili. (…) Our five star rating goes beyond the typical lodge experience, we really discovered some profound lessons there. Ubuntu reminds us that we can be our best selves — don’t be so hard on humanity that you stop seeing the solutions for balanced living that a small group of Africans living and working in the middle of nowhere have been able to come up with."

A perfect way to end our visit to Africa
After a 9-day safari we were ready to relax. The resort is beautiful and the staff is magnificent. We were met by David (the manager) and our butler for our stay, from then on we were treated like family. Everyone knows your name and is so friendly. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary there. Our friends contacted the resort prior to our visit and we surprised by a dinner on our friends rooftop. It was beautiful and the staff joined us to celebrate. I cried when we left. And I will return. Oh wait. Salem, Abdi and Edi. You are in our hearts forever."

Great, great camp – just book it
A really wonderful stay - the location is stunning and the pool a real bonus with a 12 year old. The view over to Kenya from the pool was amazing."

Thank you for an amazing trip!
I have now been to Rekero 8 times and wouldn't stay anywhere else in the main Maasai Mara Reserve. Why? It's not just about the location, which is unbeatable, or about the fantastic game viewing close to camp. Every guest is made to feel welcome and special at Rekero - not just by the managers and guides, but by all the team. The tents overlooking the Talek river, the service and food are all first-class. What could be better than listening to the sounds of the African night in such a beautiful setting? Great for families, couples and people travelling by themselves. "
