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.

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 of course includes 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).
