What a wonderful spot. It is the perfect location for seeing the animals of the Maasai. The staff was excellent; the drivers superb and so well informed. Philip and Katie, the managers, were delightful. One of the selling points for me was their connection to a charity that helps finance the Mara Rianda Boarding School. Our family and grandchildren visited this amazing facility and we were able to help out with tuition for the children attending. We funded two of the young ladies who are studying there. The children of Kenya are so eager to learn and so appreciative of the chance to do so. Be sure and visit this school if you stay at Governor's Camp.
The animals roam free among the tents at night but there are many guards who keep them from visiting your room!
My family is wanting so much to return to Kenya and to Governor's Camp soon.
