I took my boyfriend to Governor's as a 30th Birthday Present at the beginning of November this year. We would recommend Governor's camp to anyone looking to go on Safari. The staff were all lovely and so helpful - they couldn't do enough for us! Our driver (Duncan) was amazing, a lovely guy, who really knew his stuff. He answered... More

I love East Africa. This was our second visit to in August earlier this year. It was short gateway for us way from office, and only meant for wildlife photography. We chose Governor's camp this time and it was the perfect choice. What a brilliant stay it was!! We were picked up from the gate by the Governor's vehicle and... More

This was our first safari so cannot make any comparisons, but I don't see how this format can be improved upon. Accommodation - Tents, amazing, comfortable, clean, and perfect for hearing every little noise at night, it simply adds to the experience and keeps you in the zone. Food - The food is excellent, breakfast, game drive picnic, lunch, dinner,... 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.
