Governors' Camp

Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya

Immerse yourself in the African bush at Governors’ Camp, a charmingly classic camp tucked away along the banks of the Mara River. We love the traditional, nostalgic feel to this camp; it really feels like you’re deep in the wilderness.

Nestled in the heart of the Masai Mara, Governors’ Camp offers an amazing front row view of Africa’s incredible wildlife - the naturally beautiful savannah is home to spectacular birdlife, hippo and crocodile, and of course the Big Five.

There are 37 tents altogether, including a family suite. All adopt the traditional bush tent vibe, with the addition of luxurious yet rustic furnishings and a lovely deck either overlooking the Mara River or the endless plains.

Created in 1972, this tent offers a nostalgic charm, with lovely open-air dining and lounge areas looking out onto the savannah. We love the experiences on offer at Governors’ Camp - from balloon safaris to cultural trips, you’ll find yourself truly at one with nature.

Migration viewing is from July to October.
