Governors' Camp

Governors' Camp, an iconic safari destination and Africa's first permanent tented camp, has proudly stood on its original site since 1972. Situated in the heart of the Masai Mara Reserve, Governors' Camp offers an unrivaled wildlife experience, immersing you in the breathtaking beauty of the African wilderness.

Nestled amidst the lush riverine forest along the meandering banks of the Mara River, Governors' Camp boasts the ultimate wildlife viewing location. The river's tranquil waters teem with diverse birdlife, hippos, and crocodiles, providing a picturesque backdrop for your safari adventure.

From the majestic elephants to the elusive big cats, the Masai Mara never fails to impress wildlife enthusiasts and photographers alike. Witness the spectacle of the Great Migration, a natural wonder like no other, as millions of wildebeest and zebras embark on their annual journey across the Serengeti plains to the Mara. From July to October, the Mara becomes a stage for this epic migration, with dramatic river crossings and thrilling predator-prey encounters unfolding before your eyes.

Join us at Governors' Camp and embark on a safari adventure of a lifetime, where every moment is filled with awe and wonder amidst the untamed beauty of the Masai Mara.
