      Governors' Camp

      Vast Herds, Big Cats and Classic Accommodations

      Governors’ Camp with its 37 tents is situated on the banks of the Mara River in the west of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unrivalled flow of wildlife throughout the year. From July to October the Mara becomes a backdrop for one of the last great natural wonders of the world, when 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra surge up from the Serengeti Plains in their annual search for the seasonal grasses that sustain them. The spectacle as the vast herds cross rivers and sweep through the golden grasses, is punctuated by individual struggles with the predators, which are in turn drawn to take their part in this dramatic event. While the migration is spectacular, game viewing at all other times of the year remains almost unrivalled anywhere in Africa. All guest facilities are under canvas and keep the authentic, traditional safari atmosphere. All guest tents have en-suite bathrooms with shower and basin, running cold and hot water as well as a flush toilet. Gas and paraffin lamps are used for lighting. The privately located Justus Suite is perfect for honeymoon couples, as is tent 37 which has incredible views over the Mara Plains and its wildlife. The dining tent, campfire and the bar tent are the center of the camp. Next to the reception is a small gallery with local paintings and handcrafts as well as a small souvenir shop. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style, alfresco. Dinner is served in the dining tent. For dinner the menu offers a choice of four courses, including a choice of main courses. A traditional campfire is lit at sunset every evening and after dinner clients enjoy sitting around the campfire, reminiscing about their safari in the fire’s evocative light. Three game viewing excursions per day, early and mid morning as well as the afternoon with experienced driver guides in the Masai Mara Game Reserve are included in the accommodation cost. Balloon safaris, guided walks in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, cultural visits to a nearby Masai Village, and excursions to Lake Victoria can be arranged at an extra cost.
