I had the time of my life. It was an experience i will never forget. Waking up to the hippo eating outside the tent. Can't wait to go back one day. Every thing was 1 St class the service, food accommodation. My driver Robert was lovely and the hot air balloon is a must. Also fantastic trip to the masai... More

I would have no hesitation whatsoever recommending this camp to anyone. The whole experience is run to the tiniest detail and works like clockwork. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and their knowledge is second to none. The fact that the camp is not gated and animals can roam amongst you is genuinely awe inspiring and at all... More

This was our second visit, the last being September 2009, and followed on from a six night stay at the Mara Intrepids, staying three nights. Very little has changed, there are a few internal screens erected and limited electricity is available in each tent sufficient only for charging low power batteries or tablets/laptops. There is wifi available, but I would... More

As a long-term resident of Kenya who has stayed in several different lodges and camps around the country, Governor's is far and away the very best. The way it is set up to interface with the Mara and allow the Mara to walk through the camp at any time, the excellent food, and the more relaxed style--though still extremely attentive... More

I always joke with friends that it must be fun to be the 1%. Here at Govemor's camp not only did I feel like the 1% but like a queen! The staff was so amazing friendly and not in the hypocritical "let me be nice for the tip" way. Genuinely nice and so helpful. Coffee in bed. Personal attache. My... More

After so many times with the Governors Camp Group, this November we again enjoyed the magic of the Mara. We very much appreciate Location, Style and Surroundings. The wildlife is not disturbed by the camps which is perfect for the animals and thrilling for the guests.

I recently spent a few days here at Governors' Camp. The game viewing is superb from the wildlife around the camp, to the choice of safari rides over the Mara. There is also a wonderful balloon ride. The camp itself is getting a bit worn but it is all clean and neat with lovely friendly staff.

We spent 4 days at this exceptionl tented Safari lodge. With magnificent views over the Masai Mara providing excellent comfort and good food. Friendly staff and our driver couldn't have done more for us. 3 drives a day, with the best always being the 06:30 red eye. Saw the big 6, and the lions from Marsh Pride highlighted in the... More
