Rekero Camp, Greater 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. At Rekero, you’re in good hands. Our team and Maasai guides have years of experience and incredible knowledge of the Masai Mara and its wildlife.

We stayed at Rekero for 3 days and 2 nights. I was originally unsure about staying in a "tent" or tented camp as I generally prefer hotel type accommodation, but I have to say this place was absolutely amazing! It is everything you imagine when you think of safari. The accommodation staff (Ian, Barak and Cass) were amazing and looked after all our specific needs including accommodating all my daughters dietary restrictions (no gluten, eggs or dairy) which isn't easy. The guides (Francis and Benjamin) were unbelievable and continue to share pictures and experiences with us even after we've returned home (thanks Francis). The entire family is still talking about this place and asking when we can return. We will no doubt spend much more time at Rekero on our next visit. - ianpryor
We stayed at Rekero in October 2019, it was a dream come true. The pictures do not do it justice, the views and experience are amazing ! The staff at Rekero can’t do enough for you, they went above and behind to make this dream trip a reality . We are a large group ranging from 6-69, all of us can’t say enough about the experience. We all enjoyed every minute of our time and didn’t want to leave. The food was top notch, they accommodated food allergies and made everything extremely tasty. If I could I would point out the staff members that made an impression, but that would be to hard as they all did an amazing job during our stay. Francis and Benjamin are amazing Masai. Without a doubt I would love to return to Rekero. Thank you for such an unbelievable experience, no words can express how amazing our trip was. - Tara C
We just completed a 3 day family Safari at Rekero, and it could not have been better or more enjoyable. This was my 12th Safari over the past 10 years, all of which have been excellent. But, our recent experience at Rekero was the best of the bunch. From the facilities to meals to staff to game viewing, Rekero was fantastic on all counts. The culture of service excellence extended from the camp managers to the guides to the entire staff. The game viewing was the best ever, thanks largely to the incredible expertise of our guide, Lenkoko. Add to that the fabulous meals, great camp amenities & outstanding service, and I can assure you that you cannot miss with this camp as your Safari choice! - 10seman
