Reputed to be the first tented camp in Africa, Governors’ Camp has a prime location in this mighty game reserve and a long history of authentic Mara safaris.

Sitting right on the Mara River on the edge of the Paradise Plain, where the best game is to be found, the camp is unfenced and animals do wander through, and it’s quite likely you will also come across the camp’s habituated warthog.

Being established since 1972, Governors’ has a long-standing reputation for delivering authentic and very comfortable safaris in the Masai Mara. Its collection of 37 tents all come with private verandahs and en-suite bathrooms. Meals are either al fresco buffet-style, or served in an atmospheric gaslamp lit dining tent. These and twice-daily game drives are included in your stay, with more diverse activities on offer should you like.
