Governors' Camp is situated on the banks of the Mara River in the west of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Governor’s Camp is a well-established safari camp, built way back in 1972. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with hippo and crocodile. Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank, with uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains.
Although this camp consisting of 37 tents is larger than what Africa Uncovered normally recommends, Governors’ Camp has an outstanding location and the tents that head out onto the plains offer a priceless experience. Governors’ Camp is also very reasonably priced.
Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suit bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. Governors' Camp has 37 tents and is located right in the heart of the best game viewing area of the Masai Mara. All tents at Governors have en-suite bathrooms with shower, basin, flush toilet, bidet and hot and cold running water. There are electric lights in the tents and 220 volt plugs at reception.
What our clients say
Our tent is secluded and at the very edge of camp. We saw a pride of lions including several male lions and young cubs on our drive in from the airstrip. After lunch we have spent the last few hours watching the giraffes that are stationed not 100 yards from our porch!”
