Governors’ Camp


Bonded to the banks of the Mara River, Governors’ Camp gives each guest a chance to witness the unspoilt majesty of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. With its collection of accommodations, you have a choice of where you’d like to stay and what levels of comfort you’d like to experience.


This tented camp takes the idea of natural lighting to a new level, with 37 decadent tents allowing sunlight to flow freely through each suite. The camp’s main tent holds a bar and lounge area where guests can meet communally.

Of the 37 available tents, 24 are twin tents, 12 are double tents and the last offering is the Justus Suite. Each tent carries an en-suite bathroom with the trappings of a modern hotel room and vistas out into the fields of the Mara National Park, or the Mara River. The tents are raised for better views and with timber flooring, insect-proof netting and sumptuous beds, your stay is guaranteed to be memorable and relaxing.

Wildlife and Activities

No matter where you stay, the collection of activities and game viewing is all equal, with resplendent and bountiful game viewing from every angle. Experience a game drive, guided by the expertise of trackers that know this land inside out. The customised safari vehicles will get you close enough to smell the lions, elephants, rhino and giraffe, or the hundreds of thousands of wildebeest during the Serengeti migration.

Hot air balloon rides allow you to see the topography of this land, and the bourgeoning, snaking hulk of the Mara river that feeds it. Masai Cultural Visits allow you to meet the locals and become enveloped in their joyous customs. Spa treatments massage the tensions out of your body, whilst specialist guiding trips, birding safaris, bush dinners and sundowners in the savannas will immerse you so deeply into the rhythms of nature that you’ll find it difficult to leave. The overnight stay on Mfangano Island leaves you at the tranquil, lapping waters of Lake Victoria, where you’ll find a degree of peace so enticing it will move you. All of these activities are awaiting your experience at the Governors’ Camp.
