Rekero Tented Camp

Masai mara's gem of Rekero Tented Camp

A classic Kenyan safari awaits you at the Masai Mara’s gem of a camp called Rekero, a small scale, luxury tented camp in a prime game viewing and migration area. Trevel with Voyage2Africa and you get personal butlers, bucket showers and a warm, friendly ambience – the perfect ingredients for a wonderful honeymoon at Rekero Tented Camp in the Masai Mara. 

This is the African wilderness so make sure you get front row seats to one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife phenomena and witness the most intense predator-prey interactions. Dance with the Maasai tribesmen and enjoy picnics in the untamed bush.

Visitors to Kenya will never forget their tour to Rekero Tented Camp after witnessing the world-famous Great Migration from your private deck – the camp has been carefully created on a main crossing point on the stunning Talek River in probably the best place to see the millions of on their classic annual journey. No need to leave the camp to follow these wonderful mammals – just sit with your camera and a cuppa tea and watch the movie unfold below you. 

You will stay in one of just 9 traditional safari tents, a hotel room in nature, hiding under shady indigenous trees with soul inspiring river views – comfy beds, hot showers and a welcoming day bed on the deck to chill out on all day, in this wild paradise.  

Whether you come for the Great Migration or not, this is a select camp from which to game view in all weather and seasons, to see predators on the prowl at night, especially lions and leopards, putting on such a drama for guests and game rangers alike.  Famous wildlife documentaries have been filmed right here, including Big Cat Diary by the BBC and African Cats by Disney!

Overview

Discover the surreal Rekero Camp in the centre of the drama of the Great Migration as it unfolds every year on the confluence of the Mara and Talek Rivers, just below the camp in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Sit on your tented chalet’s deck and watch the wildebeest cross the rivers in their thousands as greedy crocs lie in wait. 

The camp closes during April and May but guests can book a place in the 9 tented suites any other time – simply go game view and appreciate such vast open spaces as is the Masai Mara in all its African splendour. Feel right at home in this cosy camp and bring your children to learn more about wildlife conservation, the local Masai people, and how people can coexist with wild animals. Rekero Tented Camp is the most romantic place on earth for honeymoon couples who love the drama of the hunt, top notch service and friendly staff. 

All accommodation faces the rivers and boasts bucket showers, solar lighting, amazing views and a personal butler to see to all your needs. Families are welcomed in two larger tents for 5 people. Meet up on the main decks where the dining tent overlooks prime game viewing territory and extends out into the vistas beyond. Wander down to the pretty gardens to relax and take photos as birds surround you and the sun warms your body. Don’t forget to get a curio from the gift shop before you leave, made by the Masai people.
