Rekero Farm

The Masai Mara holds the greatest and most diverse concentration of wildlife remaining in Africa today, and is particularly famous for its lion and cheetah population. Rekero, the Beaton family home in the Mara, caters for a complement of up to ten guests in four charming well-appointed cottages set in a pretty garden foaming with flowers. Green and abundantly planted as the garden is, its most striking feature is the waterhole on the far side of the lawn at which the guest may have an extremely close encounter with the local wildlife as they come to drink. The waterhole is illuminated at night time and affords the visitor an excellent view from "the mess" - the lounge and dining area. Elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard regularly visit and look superbly dramatic in the soft light.

 

Wildlife viewing on foot or by vehicle is tailored according to the movement of wildlife and is steered away from mass tourism. Here you will get the feel of being closer to a more natural Africa. Rekero is also unusual in that two of the senior guides are shareholders in the enterprise. This investment is reflected in the Beatons' close association with the local Masai and Ndorobo communities which allows guests to visit them and learn far more, culturally and sociologically, than would normally be possible. Visits with Rekero guides are a million miles away from the stage shows normally seen by tourists at Masai villages. The culture of the Ndorobo, the traditional hunter/gatherers of this part of Africa, is absolutely fascinating but, sadly, fast disappearing.

 

The Beatons can also mobilise a traditional tented camp for three nights for groups of between four and twelve guests. This might be particularly exciting during the great annual migration of game from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara. Rekero gives the traveller a feel of the real Africa and if you take your sundowner on Kipeleo Hill, behind the house, which is 7,200 ft above sea level this will become apparent. From this wonderful vantage point the Masai Mara stretches before you and the Serengeti is visible, misty in the distance. This is the Africa of which you have dreamed.
