Governor's Camp has become synonymous with a fantastic safari experience. Situated in the Masai Mara National Park the camp is based in an area that was set aside for colonial governors and royal visitors back in the early days of safari. The camp has been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco-Tourism Kenya due to its sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.
Govenors Camp offers 24 twin tents, 12 double tents and 1 Justus Suite tent. All tents are under canvas and have a private veranda, shower and hot and cold running water. Some tents line the riverbank tucked into the forest and enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River whilst others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara.
Meals are taken in the communal dining tent which includes an open bar. During the evening hippos and elephants will likely be seen in the grounds of the camp which is why you will be escorted by the Masai askari (warden).

We loved it, we saw everything we wanted on the game drives, the big five, a river crossing and much more. We had a great driver Dickson and were matched with another couple who were staying the same amount of time as us which worked out really well. Delighted with the accomodation and the food, we were well fed and supplied with plenty of water.Read full trip review
This was a perfect choice for our family with great fixed tents and really good access to the wildlife. Good drivers and staff.Read full trip review
