Governors' Camp Governors' Camp

Check Availability & Book Online

The setting is magical. So much so that almost a century ago it was reserved, exclusively, for Kenya’s colonial Governors. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve.

Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Created in 1972 Governors’ Camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best.

Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suit bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and dinning tent with views over the plains.

Governors Camp has just been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco- Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.

Why we love February in the Masai Mara 2

February is marked by cool mornings, hot days and a few scattered rain showers. The grasses on the savannah begin to dry out and herds of elephant with some small calves in the family units are drawn in to the forests around our camps to feed. One February we were incredibly privileged to witness the birth of a baby elephant in Little Governors Camp. Zebras and wildebeest from the Loita plains begin to arrive in the Masai Mara. Big cat sightings remain good and the birding is excellent with European migrants still around and resident birds nesting and raising their chicks.
