You will stay at Governors' Camp, Kenya, where the setting is magical. So much so that almost a century ago, it was reserved exclusively for Kenya’s colonial governors. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest, along the winding banks of the Mara River, its waters teeming with birdlife, hippo, and crocodile, in the heart of Masai Mara National Reserve.
Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank. Tucked into the forest, they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, while others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Created in 1972, Governors’ Camp sets new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Everything is under canvas. All tents have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and a dining tent with views over the plains.

This safari will take place at Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Set in the heart of Africa’s great plains in Kenya, the Masai Mara boasts 1,672 square kilometers of unspoiled wilderness. It offers the best game and bird viewing not only in Kenya but anywhere in Africa. The views across the rolling golden grasslands studded with acacia trees, rivers, and forests are dazzling, the sense of space overwhelming.
Throughout the year, the Masai Mara is a place of natural drama, a kaleidoscope of color and life. Most stunning of all are the months between July and October when the savanna teems with animals during the great wildebeest migration. Millions of wildebeest gather in the Masai Mara in one of the natural wonders of the world.
