Location and transfer
A 45-minute flight from Nairobi Wilson Airport by light aircraft to Ol Kiombo Airstrip then a 20-minute road transfer from the airstrip to Rekero. NB: Visas are required for Kenya.
Each tent is designed in a classic safari style with contemporary touches, and has a private en suite bathroom and a large verandah with a day bed, from which you can listen to the hippos whilst you have an afternoon nap post-safari. Two of the tents are dedicated to families.
If your stay coincides with the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra (usually July to November) then you are in one of the best locations as, for years, the Great Migration has crossed the Talek River, close to the camp’s dining area. It’s a spectacular event as the wildebeest swim for their lives across the crocodile-infested rivers. Outside of the migration, there is of course still plenty to see on thrilling game drives, and it’s not uncommon to spot wildlife in camp. Elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah and buffalo can often be seen and, on rare occasions, serval and caracals. For something a little different, xperienced riders can enjoy the thrill of safari by horseback.
Culture & History
Learn more about the traditional Maasai way of life with a visit to a local village. These villages are home to some of the Rekero guides who will escort you to ensure that the experience is personal yet unobtrusive.
Children over the age of five years are welcome at Rekero and there are two family tents that can sleep a family of up to five. Private vehicles need to be booked if there are children under the age of twelve years, but this will give you complete flexibility on safari times.
