3rd safari, 2nd time to the Governors and as last time out of this world, big cat dairies and other documentary’s don't do the camp and Mara it justice.
The whole place is open which means there’s nothing stopping any animal coming into the camp, we went a morning drive and literally not even a minute out of the camp were a large male and female lion, couldn’t believe how close to the camp they where(see photo top left and you can see camp), words can’t describe the place.
Didn't see the leopard this trip which was disappointing, but saw the black rhino which was good to see again, thanks to all the staff at the camp for looking after us.....
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Governors' Camp nestles on the banks of the Mara River in the heart of the most prolific game viewing area of the Masai Mara. One of only a handful of camps located within the Masai Mara Game Reserve the setting is magical. Half of the tents overlook the rolling grasslands of Africa, with views of elephant, zebra and gazelle; the rest are tucked away in the forest lining the banks of the Mara River. Governors has been pioneering immersive and transformational safaris in the Mara since 1972. We were the first operators to be permanently based inside the Mara, our site was chosen for its prime location and was the designated “getaway” for the Governors of Kenya. Unfenced and right in the heart of the action. Our camps are Located in some of the best and most precious Wildlife Locations in the world. We are a family with a colourful cast of characters that embodies the spirit of safari, while placing the care of the environment, community and conservation at the heart of everything we do. ... more less
