We would whole heartedly recommend Governor's Camp as a fantastic safari experience. The location, accommodation. staff and services were all excellent and we could not have been better looked after or had a better guide in Karui who went out of his way to search out the animals. There were fellow travellers staying there who told us they regularly go... More

Everything about our experience was perfect. Most importantly, we had an excellent driver who managed to guide us to all the big animals we hoped to see. We saw the "big 5" all on the first day, before lunch! The next day we saw one of the elusive cheetahs. We loved that they did 3 game drives per day (some... More

Lucky enough to have stayed here three times and each one was fabulous! The tents were large and comfortable with a great (unexpectedly!) shower! The staff were friendly and fun, and very helpful. The cuisine was not the best but heh, that's not what you are there for! I have stayed on both sides of the camp; be warned that... More

My husband and I stayed at the Governors Camp for our honeymoon in November 2014 (sorry for the late review guys!!) From beginning to end it was a truly wonderful experience and one of the best experiences of our lives. Once arriving at the airstrip there were animals all around, it was very surreal and even seemed “staged” because there... More

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
