Great location right on the river where you can see and hear wildlife at dinner and in the evening. Easy drive to game and airstrip. You start seeing animals immediately after leaving the camp and even encounter warthogs and mongoose on the grounds. No worries,...More

The location of this camp is great, we saw elephants, crocodiles, hippos, baboons, giraffes and warthogs while in camp. The service is incredible, we assigned the same driver/guide, waiter and room attendant for the entire stay. Julius, Anthony and Samuel are excellent. This isn't a...More

About
Description
Governors' Camp nestles on the banks of the Mara River in the heart of the most prolific game viewing area of the Masai Mara. One of only a handful of camps located within the Masai Mara Game Reserve the setting is More magical. Half of the tents overlook the rolling grasslands of Africa, with views of elephant, zebra and gazelle; the rest are tucked away in the forest lining the banks of the Mara River. Governors has been pioneering immersive and transformational safaris in the Mara since 1972. We were the first operators to be permanently based inside the Mara, our site was chosen for its prime location and was the designated “getaway” for the Governors of Kenya. Unfenced and right in the heart of the action. Our camps are Located in some of the best and most precious Wildlife Locations in the world. We are a family with a colourful cast of characters that embodies the spirit of safari, while placing the care of the environment, community and conservation at the heart of everything we do. Less

Hi. We saw lions (the same ones three times)but no cheetah. One giraffe. Elephants once. We had been to intrepid camp a few years ago and there was much more wildlife and variety on the drives.
