Things to Do at Rekero
Wildlife viewing is the main event at Rekero, with two game drives per day, led by expert local guides. Whether you’re fascinated by predators or a keen birder, experiences can be tailored to suit your interests. Our game-viewing vehicles are open to allow for unobscured sightings and photographs. And don’t worry if your devices are running low on power. Our safari vehicles are fitted with charging points for easy charging and fridges to keep drinks cold.
Cultural and community visits
One of the parts of staying at Rekero is the opportunity to learn more about the Maasai way of life. We can organise trips to one of the nearby villages — home to most of our guides and staff — to learn about the Maasai culture. Sensitivity is of the upmost importance and our guides make sure our visits are unobtrusive and respectful.
Hot-air balloon rides
There are few sights more breathtaking than that of the wildlife-rich Mara plains from the air. Start the day with a sunrise hot-air balloon flight for a bird’s-eye view of this awe-inspiring landscape. Hot-air balloon rides are subject to weather conditions and at an additional cost.
The Masai Mara is famous for its big cats, and Kenya takes wildlife protection seriously. Asilia can arrange for a researcher from Kenya Wildlife Trust to present a talk in camp about their work with local communities and how they protect animals such as lions, cheetahs and leopards. Alternatively, guests can book a visit to the Kenya Wildlife Trust and Maa Trust research units to learn more. Advance bookings are essential.
Nearby Naboisho is home to one of our specially modified photographic vehicles. The open vehicle allows keen amateurs and professional photographers alike to shoot at eye level with wildlife. It is equipped with all the gear to ensure award-winning shots — from beanbags and camera rests to 360° swivel seats. You can read more about the vehicle here. Please enquire to ensure availability of the vehicle and confirm any additional fees.
