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.

January Wildlife report Masai Mara

Over the last month the Warburgia Trees have begun to fruit drawing in large herds of elephants to the forests around our camps. The grasses on the plains have grown long keeping the big herds of buffalo happy. The Topi rut has begun, Thomson Gazelles are sparring, Kori Bustards are displaying, flocks of Lesser Kestrels roost in the trees beside the streams and Crowned Cranes and Ostriches move through the grasslands with their chicks in tow. The Marsh Pride of lions has new tiny cubs and we have had lots of great leopard and cheetah sightings.

At the outset, on behalf of my entire family, I would like to thank everyone at Governors for making our visit a truly enjoyable and memorable one
