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 October in the Masai Mara

October in the Masai Mara is marked by spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Days are warm and the grass on the plains is short grazed down by the millions of zebra and wildebeest who have passed through from the wildebeest migration. Towards the end of the month there are dramatic late afternoon thunderstorms which excites the herds of wildebeest and zebra leading to big game movements and river crossings. Plains game give birth to their young and there is usually a plethora of calves on the plains. Elephant in family groups return to the Marsh and make frequent visits to our camps and the lions have many cubs in the pride, cheetah and leopard sightings are as good as ever.
