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

June in the Masai Mara was marked by spectacular sunrises, the rains returned towards the end of the month filling up the Marsh. The first herds from the wildebeest migration began to arrive with around 100,000 wildebeest and zebra crossing the Sand River and fanning out on the surrounding plains. Big herds of elephant roamed the plains and we had lovely sightings of Leopard Romi and her cub and all the resident cheetah families.
