I stayed at the main Governors' Camp with my family and slept on an extra bed in my parents' tent. At night, hippos brushed passed the side of the tent where i was sleeping. I enjoyed eating breakfast by the Mara river. I had Ntuela as my driver/guide and he was very knowledgeable. I got to see three very small... More

The camp was beautiful, the setting amazing. Our driver, Isaac was absolutely brilliant and very informative about all the flora and fauna. It was quite exciting not having any fences around the camp and all the staff very very professional and helpful. The food was exceptional and could not be faulted. The only drawbacks were the infestation of caterpillars in... More

We visited the Governor's camp for 3 nights during January 2016 as part of our Honeymoon in Africa. Our stay was wonderful. The accommodation is fantastic and we had a tent that overlooked the Mara river - full of hippos and with nightly visits outside the tent by elephants and giraffe! The staff and service was exceptional and made our... More

The whole experience met or exceeded expectations in every respect bar one; although perfectly adequate, we found the food rather disappointing, exemplified by the fact that the only starter at lunch and dinner every day, was soup!! The game viewing and our guide (Moses) were outstanding and as that was what we came for, we left extremely satisfied overall.

Governors camp is very welcoming and has excellent facilities. The food is excellent. The drivers are excellent, and there is no limit on the number of kilometers they can travel as is the case with some of the lodges in the Masai Mara game reserve. Our family highly recommend this excellent facility. The staff is top quality!

Governor's camp is amazing. From the staff, to the property, to the safari drives and the hot air balloon adventure....AMAZING. This is one of the oldest if not the oldest of camps at the Masai Mara. Their attention to their clients needs, dietary or otherwise is superb. We stayed at the Justus Suite which was huge, extremely comfortable and afforded... More

We spent 5 glorious days at Private Camp at Governors and cannot thank Harrison enough for his uncompromising attention and warmth. We had such an amazing experience. The Mara is unique and a must place to visit.

Governor's Camp offers a unique and fun 'tented camp' safari experience. Guests will enjoy tented rooms overlooking the Masai Mara, with frequent appearances by elephants, giraffes, hippos and other wildlife...within feet of your front door (in fact, on our first night at the camp a stampede of elephants wandered so close to us that the ground shook and the canvas...

Giddion was our game drive guide and he did an excellent job with the safaris while we were there. The only downside was th food was not great on a couple of occasions.
