The heart of the magical Masai Mara

The setting of the Governors' Camp is so exceptional 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 bird life, hippos and crocodiles. Offering an authentic safari experience, the canvas tents are luxuriously furnished with en suite facilities and private verandahs. From July to October the camp is the perfect place to experience the magnificent wildebeest migration.

Absolutely Amazing!!


Sorry for the delay in reviewing - From the moment we got off the plane to the moment we stepped back on it we were made to feel special. This is Glamping +++. All the staff were so very friendly, from the Management team down to the security guards/rangers at night. The "rooms", can't really call them tents, were beautiful and had everything that you would need, plus more!! The food was top drawer and it was beyond our expectations knowing that you are in the middle of nowhere. The safari itself was a dream, the guides and drivers were great and the animals were the cherry on top of the cake. This is a holiday we will be talking about for a very long time . . . But we are already planning to go back in 3-4 years and for longer because it was special. Thank you.
