We stayed for a week - June 6th-14th. This was our 4th Safari, and had always wanted to stay at Governors, to be right in the heart of Masai Mara National Reserve. We couldn't have chosen better, we had the most amazing view across the plains from our tent (37) hippos, giraffes, elephants, impala right outside the tent every day,... More

We stayed at governors for 3 nights from 6th June. We had a great time, we loved our tent & the service received by the staff. food was nice too. The game drives were amazing & our driver was too, he knew a lot and went where ever we wanted to go. I would love to go back again :-)

I have been visiting East Africa now for well over 20 years. This year I called in at Governors Camp after spending some time trekking the mountains in Rwanda. This was also the first time that I had visited as a solo visitor as my wife didn't want to do the mountain trekking and went to Dubai instead with her... More

Just an awesome experience all way round. Generous helpful staff, great food, knowledgeable guides and safe environment. Second time I was there and we would highly recommend it. Governor's camp and staff know the Massa!

An incredible honeymoon destination. We had an amazing time at Governors. The rooms were fantastic and being escorted back to your tent and hearing the Hippos trundle past the tent at night was quite surreal. After being out watching the start of the migration and then coming back and drinking a G&T whilst watching the Meerkats wandering around you whilst... More

The location is just amazing as you are in the middle of the Mara National Reserve without any fence around you. The spacious tents you sleep in are located around a main building where lunch and dinner are served. The views are awesome and you can see and hear wild animals all the time from you own tent. Food is... More

My group was at Governor's Camp one night for an afternoon safari followed by a sunrise safari the next morning. I was very impressed with the "tents." More of soft-sided home, very comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. I felt right at home from the get go. I cannot wait to make a return trip in the near... More

The camp is close to the airstrip and well located alongside the Mara river. Tents are comfortable but not luxurious, for instance no heating if required. Food is excellent (we are vegan) and the game drives well organized. Ballooning was an excellent experience and can be recommended to everyone. Just ask for a quiet tent because ours was close to...

Nestled in the African bush, amongst the trees, our tented accommodation was everything we wanted. A 2 second stroll to the top of the cliff, looking down in the river below we could see a crocodile with a buffalo head sticking out of its mouth. Nature's awesomeness right on our doorstep. Concern shown for guests was paramount with no one... More

Such stuff as dreams are made of. I spent 3 wonderful nights at Governors camp in April 2015. The views across the Mara from our tent were like a cinema epic. Quite magical to view a giraffe silhouetted against the dawn. Perfect tranquility and a glorious start to a magnificent day ahead. The Accommodation is superb and the staff make... More
