Governors' Camp has been a Pioneer of African Safaris for 40 Years
Big Cat Diary is a world famous nature documentary on BBC television which follows the lives of lion, cheetah and leopard of the Masai Mara. Governors Camp has been proudly home to the series since its inception. We have accommodated the BBC film crews and our team of expert guides who know the Masai Mara and its big cats like no other, tracked and followed the big cats of our area of the Masai Mara for the series.
For the past twenty years we have based ourselves at Governor’s Camp – the first tented camp to establish itself in the Masai Mara in 1972. I lived at Mara River Camp from 1977 to 1982, a fifteen-minute-drive beyond the northern boundary of the Reserve. Governor’s was a much more sophisticated operation than ours and as a fledgling safari guide I often found myself knocking on the door for help.
Governors’ Camp Collection is now working with the Mara Predator Project to help protect and conserve lions. Throughout Africa lions face extinction because they attack livestock in areas outside National Park boundaries and are killed in retaliation. The Mara Predator Project carries our science based conservation working to reduce the cost of predators to livestock and people.
