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

First went to Governors 3 years ago for the holiday of a lifetime. So wonderful that we had to save up and go again. Staff are friendly, location is lovely (where else can you sit and have a pre-dinner drink with a giraffe grazing on nearby bushes?) - our second trip lived up to our expectations and would thoroughly recommend...

A small group of us visited the Mara for two nights at Governor's camp. From Nairobi its was a short flight to Governor's airstrip and then its just a 5 mins drive to the camp which makes the whole stay very simple and relaxing whilst maximising the time. The tents are great with very substantial bathrooms. Other high end camps... More

We had heard a lot of good things about Governors and we weren't disappointed! The location of the camp is amazing with us literally being right in the middle of the most amount of animals! The service from all of the crew was knowledgable, smiley and couldn't do enough. I would recommend and given there are family tents probably event... More

Words cannot describe how good this was…. We booked a Safari in Kenya from 4th to 9th January 2015, with 3 nights in the Governor's Camp. The camp is first class. Accommodation brilliant, we had a super tent close to the Mara River. The staff are very friendly and courteous, the food excellent and as much as you need. Our... More

We spent three night at Governor's Camp in January. The tents are excellent, very comfortable with everything you should need. The service was also very good, with very helpful and friendly staff. There is even someone to bring you a hot water bottle in case you are cold at night, although the tents were warm enough for this not to... More
