Governors' Main Camp Location Map

Governors' Camp sets new standards in luxury for a tented camp, and is today still one of Africa's best.

The setting is magical. Governors' Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it's waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile. Some of the tents line the riverbank, with uninterrupted views over the Mara River, and others have views across the sweeping plains.

Guests here can enjoy 3 game viewing excursions per day - departing sunrise, late morning and in the afternoon with experienced driver guides inside the Masai Mara National Park. Daily bush walks can also be arranged in a private concession area adjacent to the Masai Mara, accompanied by one of the Masai Scouts, who provide a wealth of information on the traditional medicinal uses of plants and Masai folklore while you track game on foot.

Or why not marvel at the game teeming on the Mara plains from the advantage point of a hot air balloon. For an additional charge, take to the skies at dawn for an hours flight, followed by a champagne bush breakfast and game viewing on return to camp.

The 37 spacious and luxurious en-suite safari tents are entirely under canvas, and each have their own private verandah. You can watch and listen to birds, and you may even see larger animals which wander into camp. It is quite possible to wake up to the sound of hippo feeding on the grass outside your tent. Gas and paraffin lamps are used for lighting. There are also family tents available for those people travelling with young children.

The dining tent and the bar tent are the centre of the camp. A traditional campfire is lit at sunset every evening and after dinner clients enjoy sitting around the campfire, reminiscing about their safari in its evocative light.

The camp has also been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco-Tourism Kenya due to its sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.
