Location

This mobile camp lies in the heart of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, occupying seven acres of lush, game-rich landscape. With the Talek River to the south and the Mara River just 3km away, Rekero is primely situated to view the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra. A nearby ford offers passage between the Musiara and Sekenani sectors of the reserve, giving Rekero’s guests access to a variety of habitats that includes plains, bush, marshlands, and waterways.

Access to the camp itself is granted by a one-hour flight from Nairobi to the Olkiombo airstrip, followed by a 15-minute drive.

Rooms

Rekero’s nine spacious tents are traditional in both design and amenities. Two of these are family tents, capable of sleeping six people. Rooms are decorated simply in natural tones, with comfortable double or twin beds and plenty of storage. Each tent comes with an en-suite bathroom complete with flush toilet, twin washbasins, and traditional hot bucket shower. Outside, each tent has a riverside terrace furnished with a day bed, director’s chairs, and coffee table.

Communal Areas

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, the communal areas at Rekero Camp include a spacious lounge tent, a mess tent for communal dining, a gift shop stocking local crafts, and a newly refurbished river deck perfect for birdwatching, enjoying fireside sundowners, or al fresco dining under the stars.

Private pathways link the communal areas to each of the camp’s nine tents, where dense forest provides the guest quarters with shade and privacy.

Activities

Given its outstanding location within a premier nature reserve, Rekero’s main attraction is its safari activities. Game drives and walking tours are led daily by experienced local guides, delivering exceptionally high standards of guiding across diverse habitats. Besides hosting the Big Five species and the Great Migration, the surrounding landscape is home to nearly 500 varieties of birdlife.

Visits to nearby Maasai villages offer valuable insights into local culture, traditions and crafts. For children, the camp offers bow-and-arrow making and practice sessions. After a trip packed full of cultural and safari excursions, there is no better way to end your time at Rekero than by taking a hot air balloon across the Maasai Mara; gliding through this outstanding landscape by sunset is an unforgettable experience.

DRY SEASON

A brief drier interlude before the more intense long rains. The migration will be located within the southern regions of the Serengeti during this period. The resident (non-migratory) wildlife in the Masai Mara is however superb throughout the year, so still well worth consideration as a safari destination. Migratory birds will also be present, offering great bird watching opportunities.

Its location so close to the equator means that the Masai has very consistent temperatures throughout the year, while the high altitude (1,435 to 2,143m or 4,708 to 7,031ft) moderate these to a very pleasant 25°C/77°F to 27°C/80°F. The mornings can, however, be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a light fleece!

There are two wet seasons in Kenya. The first known as the long rains take place between March and May, the second wet season is known as the short rains which also tend to be a little less intense, these take place between November and December.

WET SEASON - 'LONG RAINS'

The exact start and end of the rains are always a little uncertain, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. This wet season is also often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain. As a consequence of the rainfall roads can be hard to navigate and wildlife a little harder to spot. On the plus side, rates are at there cheapest, and visitor numbers to the park are incredibly low, offering a more private safari experience for those who don’t mind taking their chances!

During this period the great migration starts to make its way north towards the Western Corridor of the Serengeti ecosystem, in Tanzania.

WET SEASON – ‘SHORT RAINS’

A rather unpredictable time of the year with the occasional heavy shower or thunderstorm, but usually plenty of sunshine in between. While technically the wet season the rains are not as intense during this period as the ‘long rains’, it can therefore still be a great time to visit.
