Looking for a wilderness holiday to remember? Located in the heart of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Asilia's Rekero camp offers you a warm, family welcome, the best guiding and game drives offering unparalleled encounters with animals and birds, home comforts and wonderful food. In all the many trips I have made to Africa nowhere is as special as Rekero.

Amazing staff - amazing food - amazing accommodation. This is a first class operation. You will not be disappointed. As Nike says - Just Do It ! Special mention - Stacey and our Aussie mate Pete who run the place and Sammy 2 wives , our Masai guide. He knows all sees all. Experience of a lifetime.

I want to preface this with an admission. I'm a curmudgeon. A misanthrope. I am not one to self-censor when I encounter something that I do not enjoy. That said... this camp was amazing. IMPORTANT NOTE: The prices listed on their site and on the third party sites is mostly "all-inclusive". So you do not need to pay anything extra...

What a great safari camp in the Mara. Our comfortable tent (#9) was right above the hippo pool, and so we were treated to wonderful hippo calls during the night. The staff was tremendous as was our guide (Houston). The view of the river crossing area from the main tent was unsurpassed. Food and service was excellent in every way.

Heaven on earth in the Masai Mara! Everything from the accommodations, food, drink, and game drives exceeded expectations. We spent two and half weeks and visited multiple camps in Kenya and Tanzania and this was our favorite. The game drives with our guide Onesmus were all fantastic-he always seemed to know what the animals would do before they did it,...

Deep within Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve, Rekero offers a spectacular location from which to watch the Great Migration as the wildebeest thunder across the river just outside camp.

The sweeping views from camp take in the surrounding plains, which support some of the greatest concentrations and diversity of wildlife in Africa. The cherry on top is the warm hospitality of our team and our world-renowned game-viewing guides with years of expertise - in such good hands you are ensured an incomparable Maasai Mara safari experience. ... more   less
