Tucked away in a forest on the banks of the Mara River, Governors’ Camp is located in a pristine spot of wilderness which is home to an incredible array of wildlife. Perfect for those seeking a down-to-earth safari experience, the comfortable tents at Governors’ Camp are ideally situated for a remarkable Masai Mara experience. Begin the day with an early morning game drive, searching for Africa’s legendary elephants, lions and leopards or perhaps even witnessing the Great Migration from about mid-year.
Another unforgettable way to start the morning in the Masai Mara is with a hot-air balloon safari. A nature walk, guided by the experienced and qualified naturalist, will have you learning all about the environment, while a visit to one of the traditional Maasai villages will give you the chance to learn more about their fascinating culture.
All the guides at Governors’ Camp have at least a silver qualification from the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association, making them about the most knowledgeable in the area. The camp’s formidable site was established in 1972, making Governors’ one of the oldest tented camps in Kenya.
