Room types at Rekero
Family tent – 4 pax
Two family tents are available at Rekero, featuring a king-sized bed (twin beds are available), 3 single beds and a fully plumbed en-suite bathroom with hot running shower and flushing toilet. The tents are in a unique location offering stunning views of the Talek River and its riverine forest. Guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the bush while relaxing on their private verandas.
Guest tent – 2 pax
Rekero’s nine spacious tents are laid out along the edge of the Talek River under a network of shady trees. The suites are designed in classic safari style with a fresh, contemporary edge. Each tent has a fully plumbed en-suite bathroom with running hot-water shower and flushing toilet. To make the suites even more comfortable, each tent has a large private veranda with an inviting day bed or couch where you can take in a view of the river.
Activities at Rekero
Bush breakfasts & picnics
For those keen to get in some early morning game viewing or maximise their time watching game, our camp chef can prepare a delicious packed breakfast or lunch. Leave camp with the rising sun and enjoy a packed breakfast or lunch to maximise your game-viewing time.
At Rekero you are just 50 meters away from one of the regular wildebeest migration crossing points, where the herds of zebra and wildebeest cross the Talek River. Families with children of 5 years can stay in our two airy family tents with full en-suite facilities. Families have a personal game-viewing vehicle and highly-skilled guide complete with amazing bush-wise facts, anecdotes and stories that will keep the kids entertained for hours.
Shared vehicle game drives are available from Rekero in the morning, afternoon or as a full day option. The game drives can be tailored to your particular interest but, for enhanced flexibility, booking a private vehicle is recommended. On the other hand, you can take the day off, sit back and listen to the bush chorus as you read a book or relax in camp enjoying the views from the deck.
Hot air ballooning
Balloon safaris are a romantic and iconic way of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa, as you fly silently over the plains teeming with herds of wildlife in the early morning. Typically, a balloon safari begins around 6 am and lasts for around 1 hour. Balloon safaris (additional cost) take off from designated sites and are followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush - a fitting end to a memorable flight in the wild. (At an additional cost)
