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.

Our Safari

Liverpool, United Kingdom

This was our first safari, and I don’t think we could have picked a better place. The location, service and food were perfect. We spent 3nights at the camp and from start to finish everything was superb. I would like to give a special mention to our guide...Kante. He was excellent. His knowledge and determination to find everything we wanted to find...and more was beyond what we expected. Also a mention for 2 of the staff who waited on us at lunch and dinner. Benjamin and Gladys both helpful and excellent personality. Thank you to everyone concerned at the camp for making our safari perfect.

The most magical stay in the Mara

London, United Kingdom

We have just spent 3 nights in the Governors Camp in the Masai Zamora and I can honestly say, this was the best trip we have ever been on. The service, the setting, the food was perfection. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the hotel, extremely comfortable rooms and they had thought of everything. Extremely sad to be leaving this little haven!
