Rekero Camp (A popular tented camp sat on the banks of the Talek River)
Rekero camp in Masai Mara National Park, located few metres away from Mara River and close to roars of the resident Rekero lion pride. It offers so much excitement in the heart of the Masai Mara, one of the most famous game reserves in Africa! The camp combines a traditional East African décor with a more modern and contemporary layout. The friendly staff immediately welcomes guests into Rekero Camp from the moment they arrive, stunning them with the charm and beauty of Kenya’s famous Masai Mara.
Rekero Camp sits in the heart of the Masai Mara Reserve, on the north bank of the Talek River and close to the Mara River. With an infamous crossing point just 150 metres away from the main mess of the camp, and the Mara River a comfortable distance to drive to, the migration period could not be more exciting here at the camp! However, the abundance of water and grasslands provide an area rich in game all year round beyond the months of the migration.
A typical day on safari at Rekero Camp
The best time to see wildlife is at dusk and dawn, when the temperatures are cooler and nocturnal animals are either beginning their night’s activities or winding down.
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). We head out on our 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 sun downers. 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.
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 obscured 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.
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 inquire to ensure availability of the vehicle and confirm any additional fees.
The Masai Mara is famous for its big cats, and Kenya takes wildlife protection seriously. Pamoja Tours and Travel 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.
