You must make the time to travel to Kenya, the Masai Mara and specifically Private Governor's Camp. It is a magical place with a very special feel to it, stunning food, fabulous accommodation and the most wonderful staff to whom nothing is a problem. We had the best ever time - more memorable than we could have ever wished for... More

Governors camp is a special place, in the midst of animals and beautiful natural landscapes. The game drives, balloon ride and sundowner on the last evening were wonderful and above our expectations. Food and wine were excellent and service was very good. Our morning wake-up call with hot chocolate and an escort to and from our tent in dark hours,... More

I went with my husband and a friend from the USA in February (2014). We had an absolutely fantastic time at Governors - our first time to Governors. The manager at the time - Mr. Peter Njoroge was very nice and helpful. The housekeeping staff and F&B staff were really good. We thoroughly enjoyed the food - especially the soup... More

We just had an amazing time at the Governor Camp. From pick up from airport to return to Nairobi it was a magical time in the Masai Mara. The staff was friendly and attentive. The camp itself was a unique experience due to the presence of wild animals roaming around at night. We did appreciate the warm help of the... More

The location is extremely good - in the heart of the Masai Mara and next to the river.The waiters and room staff are very obliging. The drivers are also very good though one was a bit controlling- objecting to another group making animal sounds to animals . The tents are comfortable and the ones next to the river have the...

Georgina, from Mike Ross Africa travel, recommended this camp to us and it exceeded our expectations. Our luxury private honeymoon tent was so spacious and well equipped with a large lawn reaching down to the river Mara. It was thrilling to tread carefully down the bank to watch the crocodiles and hippos basking. when it was dark a member of... More

My husband and I (early 30's) just got back from a fabulous week in Kenya. Half of it was spent in the Mara at Governor's with the first few days at Loldia House (worth checking out, especially to see white rhino and Rothschild's giraffes.) We also indulged in the Governor's Hot Air Balloon Safari and can recommend that (I'll review... More

Governors camp is a fantastic place to stay to really appreciate the animals in their natural surroundings! We stayed for 3 nights (which is enough) and had hippos walking round our tent at night which was brilliant, We managed to see all the big 5 as our driver tried his best to locate them. We loved every second of our... More
