governors camp, masai mara



Governors’ Camp is Africa’s first permanent tented camp, remaining in its original site since 1972. The camp occupies the best wildlife viewing location in the Reserve, nestled in the riverine forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, its waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile.
The entire camp is under canvas with all of the comforts of a luxury hotel. Some of the 30 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. The tents are big, bright and allow in lots of natural light. All tents are classic safari style each with en-suite bathrooms and a private verandah. There is a bar tent with a deck overlooking the Mara River and a dining tent with amazing views over the plains.

The camp is accessible by either road or air. Daily flights from Nairobi to the Masai Mara are available with Governors’ Aviation, Air Kenya & Safarilink airlines. If travelling by road, the drive to the Mara goes through the Rift Valley and takes approximately six hours from Nairobi.


Other than the Safari Game drives, there are numerous activities in Masai Mara that one may choose to include in their itinerary such as hot air balloon safari, maasai village tour , nature & bush walks , as well as bush meals & sundowners. All these activities are optional but quite exciting and enhances your Safari experience but come at an added cost.
