The most ownderful safari. I cannot fault the service or the experience we recieved at Governors Camp. The facilities exceeded our expectations in all areas, food, service, safari drives and the tents themselves. Everything was to a very high standard.

It's been a year since I've visited Governor's Camp and just going through some tripadvisor stuff for a recent vacation, I decided to write a review. All the time, I look at photos and think about the interesting memories and encounters with animals during my brief visit. The safari's were excellent and I highly recommend doing the breakfast one in... More

Wonderful location. Close to airstrip, overlooking Mara river. Visit by elephant at breakfast was exciting time. Hippo by tent in evening. The escorts were well able to handle the animal encounters. Wonderful food served outside under trees.

We were very excited about our visit to Governors Camp and had read everything we could before our visit - we were not disappointed. We were picked up from the airstrip by Dominic, a guide who had our full attention from the start. Dominic had so much knowledge and answered all our questions with enthusiasm. The camp was professionally run... More

Governors camp offers an excellent stay and service. The airstrip is right next to their camp and is just a couple of minutes drive away. They have their own flight service which makes it quite convenient. The rooms are excellent, clean, has electricity throughout and provides good internet wifi connectivity. The service from the staff is excellent and the food... More

We had a fantastic stay at Governors - great service, great facilities - all in the middle of an abundant area of game. I have stayed in a number of places in the Mara but you can't beat Governors for its location and proximity to abundant amounts of wildlife. The 'unfenced' nature of the camp only enhanced the experience as... More

After wanting to visit the Maasi Mara for most of my life it didn't disappoint. The location of the camp was great with hippos in the river next to the camp and elephants wondering through which is amazing. The food is very good and the staff welcoming and very informative. We went on 9 games drives in total and enjoyed... More

This was our third visit to Governor's Camp and it couldn't have been any better, we were treated like royalty. Many of the staff remembered us from before and on the first evening back at our tent we were met with a bottle of wine and a welcome home card. Our driver/guide Phillip who we always request was at the... More

The camp's location is really lovely, hippos speak up in the night just outside your tent and across the river. The food was wonderful, they even put on a surprise birthday party for me with music and dancing a cake! We had amazing safari drives for almost 10 hours a day, believe it or not! and the Mara is definitely... More

Bringing my family to African game driver was my goal for 10 years. Ensuring good experience for all family members is a difficult task. But we had such a great time. Everyone applauded and appreciated. We have done extensive research. The top reason to choose Governor's Camp is its convenient location. We were so close to the rivers for river... More
