camp grounds

The Governors Camp Masai Mara was once reserved exclusively for Kenya’s colonial governors. Surrounded by lush forest on the banks of the Mara river, it has prime position for the wildebeest migration and an incredible array of wildlife. Because it is unfenced, guests have the opportunity to see animals grazing. The camp has 37 tents some of which line the river bank while others enjoy sweeping views of the plains. The camp has an open bar tent with views of the river as well as restaurant tent with views of the plains. The Governors Camp has zero - waste policy with a strong commitment to the local community. 


The Governors Camp is located on the banks of the Mara River in the northern Masai Mara Game Reserve. The camp is accessible through twice daily flights from Nairobi Wilson Airport and Loldia House to Musiara Airstrip (duration approx. 45 minutes).  Guests are  transferred by vehicle to the camp, which is about 15 minutes away. Alternatively, it is a 6 hour drive from Nairobi, depending on road conditions. 


The Governors Camp has 37 spacious luxurious safari tents entirely under canvas, each with private deck.

  • Luxury Tent

    The classic safari tents have double or twin beds and an en suite bathroom divided by a canvas wall. The en-suite bathrooms have a hot shower, basin and hot and cold running water. The tents also feature electric lamps, electric charging points (for phones, cameras) and a private verandah for wildlife viewing. Some tents are located on the banks of the river while others have sweeping views of the grasslands.
