We had a 3 day stay at Governors camp,it was perfect,from our amazing tent overlooking the river to the great lunchtime meals gazing at the Giraffes nibbling at the trees near the camp.As we were coming into land we spotted Giraffes,Buffalo,and Elephants.As we drove the short distance to the camp we amazed to see The Marsh Pride lions posing for us on top of a Termite hill,fantastic start to our safari.Our driver Dominic over the next 4 days found all the big 5 for us,he found 4 on the first day.The elusive Black Rhino was found on our last morning,also saw The wonderful Cheetah and Leopard again,we were very lucky.The days went too quickly,very enjoyable were the early morning starts and breakfast with Zebras and Deer all around you.The staff at Governors were all lovely and a special thank you goes to Benson who looked after us at lunch and at our evening meal.Would recommend Governors to anyone planning a trip to the Masai Mara,you will have a wonderful experience and have great memories to last you a lifetime.
