Venue Setting

The setting is magical. So much so that almost a century ago it was reserved, exclusively, for Kenya’s colonial Governors. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippos and crocodiles, in the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve.

Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Created in 1972 Governors’ Camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best.

Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suit bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and dinning tent with views over the plains.

Governors Camp has just been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco-Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.

Our camp is located inside the Masai Mara National Reserve. Flying into the reserve and then driving to camp you are likely to see many wild animals from elephants to giraffes, lions to impalas. The camp itself is tucked into the forest overlooking the great Mara River. Hippos wallow in the banks of the river and crocodiles sun themselves on the banks. There are also views out across the plains of the Masai Mara.
