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.

May Game Report, Masai Mara

As the rains tailed off the Mara River remained high and grasses on the savannah are growing long. There are families of elephants feeding in the grasslands and large numbers of Topi on the plains. The resident lion and hyena have been hunting buffalo from the big herds on the plains close to camp. The widow birds are still displaying in full plumage in the grasslands and we have had great sightings of leopard and cheetah.
