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 September in Masai Mara

September normally brings scattered rain showers to the plains of the Masai Mara and with the rain comes splashes of colour from the wild flowers blooming among the savannah grasses. Huge herds of wildebeest and zebra cover the plains and there are nerve racking river crossings. Elephant are frequent visitors to camp and many of the big cats have cubs. cleverly coinciding with this time of plenty on the plains. We see flocks of Eurasian Bee Eaters flying above the plains and Marsh Owls hunting in the evenings.
