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.

June Game Report Masai Mara

With the rains tapering off the grass levels in the Masai Mara have grown very long. Large herds of zebra and topi have been moving in and out of the reserve. Elephants in large numbers occupy the grasslands in front of our camps, the males have been busy fighting and we have had lots of elephant visitors to camp. There are big herds of giraffe in the forests between our camps and the large hyena den on rhino ridge has been a busy place with lots of little ones in the mix. Lion leopard and cheetah sightings remain good with lots of sightings of Malaika and her band of cubs.
