The heart of the magical Masai Mara.

The setting of the Governor's Camp is so magical that when it opened it 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 its bird-life, hippos and crocodiles. An authentic safari experience, the canvas tents are luxuriously furnished with ensuite facilities and private verandas. From July to October the camp is the perfect place to experience the magnificent wildebeest migration.

Best place to stay in Masai Mara

Pune, India

This is amazing place right in Masai Mara and has lovely location. The staff is very good and rooms are really comfortable & safe. The wildlife starts just outside the camp location. There are Hippos just near the camp. One can see few animals moving around the dining place. Lots of birds are in the campus. The guides and naturalist are knowledgeable and very cooperative. Food is very good.
