Rekero Camp

Location: Masai Mara, Kenya Safari

Deep within Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, Rekero offers a spectacular location from which to watch the Great Migration as the wildebeest thunder across the river just outside camp.

The sweeping views from camp take in the surrounding plains, which support some of the greatest concentrations and diversity of wildlife in Africa. The cherry on top is the warm hospitality of our team and our world-renowned game-viewing guides with years of expertise – in such good hands, you are ensured an incomparable Masai Mara safari experience.

A visit to one of the neighboring villages, which are home to most of our guides, is a highly personal experience that the guides conduct with sensitivity to ensure it remains both unobtrusive and intimate.
