Rekero Camp lies in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara, which plays host to an extraordinary concentration and diversity of wildlife. This long established eco-camp is ideally situated for the annual migration, the movement of over one million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebra from the Serengeti through the Masai Mara in Kenya.

Every year, the camp is closed for two months to allow the bush and the many wildlife neighbours to return to the site leaving a fresh and recovered wilderness for the next dramatic season. Rekero is a tented camp that is set up seasonally from June until March and caters for up to 22 guests in nine tents, of which two are family tents.

From a small camp on a shady bank of the Talek River, guests are in the heart of a plain which sees much of the wildlife action. In our camp, guests are in the care of the natural guardians of this fine wilderness and those born and raised on these plains. Through them there is the opportunity to be part of a personal wildlife experience in a special place that we are proud to call home.

Governors Camp lies nestled in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, its waters teeming with bird life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

Created in 1972, Governors Camp sets new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Some of the 37 tents line the river bank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, while others boast views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara.

Everything is under canvas and all tents feature en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. Features at the camp also include a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and a dining tent with views over the plains.

Maasai Mara National Reserve Kenya

Maasai Mara National Reserve  Accommodation
The magnificient Maasai Mara is a world-known popular large game reserve in south-western Kenya. The area is named after the eye-catching traditional tall red-robed Maasai inhabitants. The Maasai Mara lies in the Great Rift Valley, a 3,500 mile fault line from Ethiopia's Red Sea through Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and into Mozambique. This is a reserve that fundamentally belongs to the Maasai people rather than just being a National Park.

Maasai Mara is famous for its 600 mile annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest from the Serengeti every year from July to October. This migration is so immense that it is named the Great Migration, and considered one of the seven New Wonders of the world.

Game viewing here is legendary, and includes all of the legendary Big Five, who have become synonymous with Africa - the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. Hippopotami and Nile crocodiles are found in large groups in both the Mara and the Talek rivers. Leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, jackals, and bat-eared foxes can also be found in the reserve. There are more than 470 species of birds in the park, many of which are migrants.

All the animals are free to roam outside the park into huge areas known as 'dispersal areas'. Many Maasai villages are also located in the 'dispersal areas' enjoying a synergetic relationship with the wildlife and land. The Maasai people are constantly under pressure to conform to western culture. The best way to understand another culture is to live with them and experience their way of sustaining life, thereby acknowledging their importance and their unique balance with nature.

Hiring a 4x4 for a self-drive tour to Maasai Mara is very liberating and empowering experience, and not for the faint at heart. It gives one the freedom to explore the area at your own pace.

There are many activities in Maasai Mara including escorted walking safaris, bird watching, horse riding safaris, day and night game drives, visiting the rhinos, and cultural visits to Maasai villages. The adventurous can try a unique and unforgettable balloon safari or scenic microlight flight over the Mara.

The romance, spirit and energy of the area is palpable and quite unforgettable, drawing visitors back time after time again.
