The prize cannot be substituted for cash under any circumstances. To redeem the prize you must be booked into any of the Governors’ Camp Collection properties at time of your balloon safari. Expiry date for redeeming the prize is 4 years from date of issue.

ELIGIBILITY: In order to enter you must be staying, or have stayed, at any of the Governors’ Camp Collection properties across Kenya and Rwanda. We may ask you to submit your travel dates and booking reference so that we can confirm your booking with us. The competition is open to all ages. You can enter a maximum of two times within the year, although you cannot submit repeat images.

HOW TO ENTER: There are two categories and you must enter an image for both categories to be in with a chance to win.

CATEGORIES: The first category is Wildlife Photography which includes any animal, bird or reptile that has been photographed while on safari with Governors’ Camp Collection. This category also includes flora, trees and vegetation and of course the amazing Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda). The second category is The Governors’ Story which includes all our beautiful camp and lodge interiors, our staff, food & drinks, any of the wonderful ‘cast of characters’ you may see strolling through the camps such as resident warthogs, mongoose, monkeys, elephants (the image must contain an element/s of our property ie a tent, seating area etc and not just the wildlife itself). This category also includes images taken on any of our activities such as bush meal set ups, sundowners, balloon safari, cultural visits to local villages and/or communities, and our vehicles and guides on game drives. Please note that we cannot post images which contain obvious identities of other guests (we reserve the right to use our own judgement on this).


Please send your images to along with your photo please specify which category your image falls into. Please send a title or caption for each image. Please make sure your images are between 600KB – 2BM in size.

Please note that when you submit your images to via any of the above channels, you are authorising us to REPOST and RE-SHARE your images across our social media platforms.
