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.

July Game Report Masai Mara

July has been dry and rather chilly in the Mara. The big news this month was the arrival on the plains around our camps of tens of thousands of wildebeest from the migration. Soon after they arrived the daily river crossings began, there were dramatic scenes as hungry crocodiles patrolled the waters taking the few they could, and the wildebeest and zebra battled with strong currents and steep rocky exits to make it to the other side. With the huge herds on the plains a time of plenty arrived with all the big cats and hyena feasting on wildebeest and zebra.
