Rekero Camp Review

The Beaton family, owners of this seasonal tented camp, settled in Kenya more than a century ago and helped pioneer the country's conservation movement. The camp, tucked away in a grove of trees more than 40 km (25 mi) from the main tourist throng farther east, is beautifully situated on a river bank near the confluence of the Talek and Mara rivers. You'll sleep in one of only eight tents (which include two family tents), each hidden from the other and all with great views of the plains and the river. There's an ancient wildebeest crossing practically on your doorstep, so you won't have to bounce around for hours in an open-sided game vehicle to find the game. But when you do find game, there won't be hordes of other visitors to spoil the sight. Tents are bright and comfortably furnished with double beds, handwoven rugs, and en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and canvas bucket showers. As the camp is unfenced, expect all kinds of game to wander past your tent, but you'll be safe within your canvas walls, and a Masai warrior will escort you to and from the main areas.
