Exclusive Fly-In Safari - Governors' Camp

Explore the magical Masai Mara

Add a touch of luxury to the beginning of your getaway by flying to the Masai Mara National Reserve. 

With a setting so magical, it comes as no wonder that when it opened almost a century ago, Governors' Camp was reserved exclusively for Kenya's colonial governors. Nestled among trees on the banks of the Mara River, the camp is in a prime position to view the abundance of bird-life, hippos and crocodiles.

Offering an authentic safari experience, the 37 canvas tents are luxuriously furnished with en suite facilities and private verandahs with views of the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara or the Mara River. From July to October the camp is the perfect place to experience the magnificent wildebeest migration.

Make the most of your holiday by adding on a beach stay after your safari — perhaps on the Kenyan coast or the nearby islands of Zanzibar or Pemba, off Tanzania — call our Destination Specialists to discuss your safari aspirations.
