Our Story

Governors' Camp Collection was started almost 50 years ago by Aris and Romi Grammaticas. Governors' Camp was the first permanent tented camp in Africa and since the early days Governors' has been a pioneer in classic safaris, under canvas and immersed in the wild. The Governors' story has been an adventure from the start.
