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 January in the Masai Mara 1

January is the peak of summer in the Masai Mara. Sporadic rain brings on growth of the savannah grasses, butterflies flit through the forest and fruiting trees in the riverine woodlands draw in parrots and elephants into the camps. Lion, leopard and cheetah begin to move further apart in search of prey. There is wonderful birding with the European migratory birds in residence.
