Private Camp

The jewel in the Governors’ Camp crown; for those who want an exclusive taste of the Governors’ experience.


Often referred to as the ‘jewel in the Governor’s Camp crown’, Private Camp can either be booked by one family or group at a time, so it’s yours to enjoy – as the name suggests – in private. The camp can also be booked on a tent-by-tent basis to share with others. We’ve picked a spot where a variety of animals come to drink, hippo laze in the shallows and elephant bring their calves for a playful dip. The forest around the camp is home to many beautiful birds from rare Trogons and Turacos to nesting Hornbills.

Personal attention is the hallmark of a stay here. Your manager is also your host and is on hand to see to all your desires and answer all your questions. You benefit from our very best guides and trackers whose knowledge of the Reserve is unsurpassed. Backed by the vast resources of the Governors’ Family of Camps, this is the ultimate safari.

Only seven tents ensure total peace and privacy at Governors’ Private Camp: they are positioned on wooden platforms with extended verandahs – designed to offer guests the traditional safari experience of times gone by. There is electric lighting in the tent and charging facilities and a new bar and dining tent overlooking the Mara River with wifi. The food is delicious, our desserts have been called “sinful”, and the drinks all included, except for champagne.

We do offer a range of spa treatments which can be done from the privacy and comfort of your tent – please view the full treatment list HERE.

In order to book the camp you must book and pay for 6 tents for a minimum of two nights or if your group will occupy more than 6 tents, you must book and pay for every tent occupied.
