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 in the Masai Mara

This month the Masai Mara like the rest of Kenya received an abundance of rain. The river filled to almost bursting, the marshes and inland lakes were full and the grass grew long and green. Big families of elephant came to the Marshes to feed on the soft sedge grasses and to play. We continued to have great big cat sightings particularly of Yaya and her new tiny cubs and the six males who are resident close to our camps.

Excellent. The location for Governors Camp is very good. The service levels at Governors was excellent. Great staff and good level of responsiveness. Wilson and Nicholas were great at Governor's, as managers.
