Governors' Camp has been a Pioneer of African Safaris for 40 Years
March is a wonderful month in the Masai Mara, elephants are drawn in large number to the woodlands around camp, there are babies everywhere and the first of the annual migrations begin with around 300,000 zebra and wildebeest arriving on the plains.
We have a new range of special offers in place for safaris for 2014. These vary from 4 nights for the price of 3 in mid and green season at our Masai Mara camps, 3 nights for the price of 2 at Loldia House in mid season, a 7 nights for the price of 5 offer for those looking for a longer safari, we also have specials for families, those on honeymoon, repeat clients and for those who prepay. We trust you will find an offer here to suit you and look forward to welcoming you on safari with us.
For those looking for a wildlife viewing adventure of a different kind we offer Hot Air Balloon Safaris over the Masai Mara. The adventure begins just before dawn. Departure is from a perfect natural launch site behind Little Governors’ Camp, flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies as the hot air balloon fills, then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-coloured canopy, you’re off for a wildlife viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective.
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.
