Rekero Camp

Rekero Camp

Rekero Camp  : One of the best places in Africa to see animals and go on a safari in Kenya is the Masai Mara National Reserve, which together with its surrounding conservancies is Kenya’s premier conservation area. A wide picturesque expanse of gently rolling African savannah plains, the Masai Mara National Reserve is located in southwest Kenya and occupies an area of around 1510 square kilometres. To the south is Tanzania’s infamous Serengeti National Park. The huge, open plains of the Masai Mara offer a haven for the region’s plentiful animals, allowing them to freely traverse the vast Masai Mara wildness and beyond.

Rekero Camp, Maasai Mara National Reserve

Rekero Camp, a luxurious lodging option located in the centre of the Masai Mara National Reserve on the banks of the Talek River, promises to provide you with a beautiful wildlife vacation in Kenya with kenya safari tours.

Rekero embodies our visitors’ romantic and daring attitudes, and the wilderness is renowned worldwide as a top spot for genuine African plains kenya safari experiences. With as little influence as possible on the environment, the entire camp is meant to highlight the beauty of the Mara ecosystem. Every building, including a small lounge space situated on a platform overlooking the river and a mid-sized dining tent shaded by trees, is covered with canvas.

The camp is only available from June to March in order to reduce ecological disruption even more. The camp promotes the environmental health of the valuable ecosystems by staying closed throughout the extended rainy season of April and May. This also allows the personnel to take a well-deserved break! You can be guaranteed of all the advantages of an exclusive Masai Mara tour, including individualised service, superb meals, spotless tents with few in-camp guests, first-rate, affable guides, and much more. Nine guest tents may accommodate up to twenty guests.

The delicate romantic ambiance of the location is further enhanced by your tent’s décor, which makes elegant use of rich textiles, neutral hues, and natural blonde wood. Cosy beds, nightstands, bedside lamps, a writing desk, and a closet adorn the roomy tents. The attached bathroom has a shower, a flush toilet and a dual-sink vanity. Additionally, there is a long, shaded space with chairs and a small table where you may sit and look out over the expansive terrain, which is home to plains animals including impalas, zebras, cape buffalo, and gazelles.

Rekero Camp’s two larger family tents, each with three beds, readily accommodate the demands of families and small groups. We value your privacy so much that we’ve placed the guest tents 20 to 25 metres apart. You could be delighted to hear the hippos at night at the further end of the camp. The camp can host guests with limited mobility if they notify them in advance using your kenya tour planner.

Your personal butler will bring freshly brewed coffee and tea to your tent every morning during your luxurious bush vacation in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. You get motivated to get ready and head into the forest because you are looking forward to a morning game drive. Throughout the year, a variety of native animals can be seen, including all of the larger predators including lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and more.

However, from July to October, when the Great Serengeti-Mara Migration’s wildebeests arrive in astounding numbers, wildlife watching is truly unique. At whatever season of the year, your guide is aware of the best locations. You could go back to Rekero for breakfast or decide to add a bush picnic to your wildlife drive.

You can spend your spare time before and after lunch going on a nature walk or visiting a nearby private conservancy; however, these activities need an hour-long trip each way.

Activities to do in Maasai Mara National Reserve

The chance to witness Masai Mara’s nocturnal wildlife as they return from their hunting expeditions is provided by morning game drives, which begin as early as 6:00 am. Among the animals to be on the watch for are lions, leopards, cheetahs, and African wild dogs. After lunch, afternoon game drives begin at 2:00 pm, giving guests the chance to witness a variety of animals as they come out of hiding and drink water.

You can go on night game drives in the Masai Mara National Reserve, which is located in the Naboisho Conservancy rather than the main reserve. During the drives, you might see jackals, nightjars, and bush babies, among other nocturnal creatures.
