Asilia Rekero Camp
Asilia Rekero Camp is a small, seasonal tented camp overlooking the Talek River in Kenya’s Maasai Mara Reserve. From July/ August to November, the camp is in a prime position for witnessing the Great Migration as the camp sits next to a main crossing point used by the wildebeest on their epic annual journey. If you happen to be there at the right time, you can watch the herd make this perilous crossing without leaving the camp.
There are 9 classic safari tents, including 2 family tents, all set among the trees overlooking the river. The bathrooms all have flushing toilets and hot-water showers. Private verandas have a day bed on which to take a midday snooze or watch zebras ambling along the riverbank. The camp has 2 communal decks, one with a canvassed lounge and a dining area, where breakfast and lunch are served and the other deck with comfy couches to enjoy a quiet sundowner. Dinner is normally served by the fireside. In addition to game drives, there are nature walks, bush picnics, visits to local villages and schools and hot air balloon rides.
