Rekero Tented Camp in Kenya is situated in the midst of the Mara Serengeti Ecosystem, home not only to the Beaton and Looseyia Familes, but also to the greatest concentration and diversity of wildlife in the world. Rekero’s tented camp is currently inside the Masai Mara Game reserve, very close to the confluence of the Mara and Talek rivers. This seasonal Eco-camp is ideally situated for the annual migration, which is the movement of over one million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebra from the Serengeti through the Masai Mara in Kenya.
The Camp is set up seasonally (June – October, December – March) and caters for up to eighteen guests. Gerard Beaton along with his partner Jackson Ole Looseyia own and host this unique camp. Their team of professional Masai safari guides and camp crew have worked together for years, providing guests with an in depth and truly memorable Masai Mara experience.
Accommodation is in eight spacious tents, (one family tent and seven tents able to accommodate twins / doubles of triples). All are ensuite with flush loos and safari showers.
Wildlife viewing and bird watching can be done on foot with experienced Il Dorobo and Masai guides, or in custom-built four-wheel drive vehicles which allow intimate yet unobtrusive access to the animals. Visits to one of the guides village can be arranged, walking can also be arranged in advance in an area outside the reserve. Picnics in the bush and sun downers also feature. Trips on a hot air balloon can be arranged at a local lodge at extra cost.
There is 24 hr power to provide lighting through a solar powered inverter system. Power is available to charge any electrical items from a central point. There are no power sockets in the tents. Kerosene lanterns are situated in front of the tents to provide subtle lighting to the exterior and front. Mobile phones do work intermitantly in camp but we ask that you use them discretly
