Why photographers love Rekero Camp
This traditional East African tented camp is perched above the mighty Talek River. The sweeping views over the plains and river are spectacular. The cherry on top is the warm hospitality of their team and excellent guiding. Rekero is owned and run by the Beaton Family who have been in Kenya for many years and is well positioned for crossings and predators, including leopards. Hippos grunt in the pools below while guests dine alfresco on the lawns and often see and hear crossings right outside the camp. This blissful location means that fantastic game viewing can continue, even when relaxing in camp. It has a great team of staff, and the high number of return guests reminds me that this is indeed a very special camp.
