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

We had a very professional driver in Emmanuel Kantai ( hope I spelt that right) He found us the elusive cheetah as well as Leopard and Lions all... More

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
