I have been to Maasai Mara several times but this was the first time I stayed at Governor's Camp. Our tent was clean and comfortable. The staff are also very friendly. Specially the ones who help you with the torch to your tents from the dining area and vice versa. Our guide Gideon was very good and had a good... More

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay at Governors Camp! Our tent was clean and comfortable and I loved having a shower as well! The safari jeeps were great, amazing views from every seat and I really enjoyed the open roofs so we could stand and take pictures. The food at camp was very good and since the camp... More

This was the 1st safari we had been on so couldn't compare it to anything else. The tent was comfortable and clean. It was two single beds and we asked for it to be made into a double which they did without question. The fire was lit at the back of the tent in the afternoon which heated the water... More

Stayed at Governors Main Camp for 5 nights, Phillip our driver was so knowledgeable and so friendly. Johnson, Richard and Simon were great. We stayed in tent 24 on the river and this was awesome, listening to the hippo and elephant at night was amazing. Everything from seeing all the animals, the crossing of the wildebeest, to the great food... More

We stayed 3 nights stay at Govenor's Main camp at Maasai Mara. Absolutely great. Our awesome driver guide Solomon recommended our itinerary: first night the 330pm-630pm drive. The next day after a good bed tea we left at 6.30 am for a game drive and came back for b/f at 9 am. Then again we left for mid morning drive... More

In July 2015, I made my 6th safari to Kenya and the Masaii Mara. All 6 of those trips were spent at Governor's Camp. By far, this is the best camp to stay! Staff is awesome, food is superb, tents are great! The views of the river and the plains are both wonderful. I have had the opportunity to stay... More

I have stayed at Governor's Camp on all four of my trips to Kenya and will be sure to include it in every future trip! The grounds are breathtaking, the staff is first class, and the animal encounters make you feel like you are living the Discovery Channel!

Let me start this review by saying that I would like to give 4.5/5 but don't know how to do it, and will later give the reason as to why not 5/5. This was a life time experience, so much more than a holiday, as it would have been for many others I am sure! Governors camp became home for... More
