Rekero Tented Camp is a small, tented safari camp on the banks of the Talek River, near the confluence with the Mara River. Though the camp is hidden in riverine forest, it provides open views of the river. Mown lawns run down from the main camp area to the Talek and four of the tents overlook the river, where you can watch crocodiles and hippo year round. 


Rekero has seven tents set along the Talek River. Each contains a double and a single bed, bedside lighting, and a bathroom with safari shower, basin and separate cubicle with the loo – which has rather wonderful arm-rests. On the small shaded verandah, there is another wash basin and two safari chairs. Tents 4 – 7 are the most private and have direct views over the river. Tents 1 – 3 are closer to the main camp area and the path runs between them and the river. A member of staff occupies a tent beyond tent 7, so there is no need to worry about the distance from the main camp.


Game viewing is on morning and afternoon game drives in specially adapted Landcruisers, with viewing hatches and power points for charging camera batteries. Each vehicle has a ranger and tracker. The camp seeks to provide a quality safari experience encompassing game-viewing, animal behaviour, flora and habitat.  Bush walks and community visits are also on offer.

Community and Conservation

Rekero is owned by Gerard and Rainee Beaton and Jackson Ole Looseyia, who started as a Maasai guide. Gerard’s father, who founded Rekero, was instrumental in establishing the The Koyiaki Guiding School, where young Maasai can qualify as professional safari guides; and the camp sponsors and employs the school’s students. Rekero supports the local primary school with both equipment and a number of bursaries. It is financing an additional primary school teacher and funding the secondary education of 16 students. The camp uses solar power for lighting and actively strives to minimise waste.  Ron Beaton was also instrumental in the creation of the new conservation area near Double Crossing: within weeks, the wildlife returned, followed by the cats. ‘Let’s hope this is the first of a number of such initiatives, which will finally secure the important animal corridors/ eco systems surrounding the National Park, whilst giving the local Masai a stake in tourism in the region.’
