Governors' Camp is situated on the banks of the Mara River in the west of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. We are in the heart of what is widely considered to be the best game viewing area of the Masai Mara.


The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unequaled flow of wildlife throughout the year. From July to October the Mara becomes a backdrop for one of the last great natural wonders of the world, when 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra surge up from the Serengeti plains in their annual search for the seasonal grasses that sustain them.

The spectacle as the vast herds cross rivers and sweep through the golden grasses, is punctuated by individual struggles with the predators, which are in turn drawn to take their part in this dramatic event. Whilst the migration is spectacular, game viewing at all other times of the year remains almost unrivaled anywhere in Africa.

Governors' Camp, with its 37 tents set amongst the trees along the Mara river, has unrivaled views over the plains. All guest facilities are under canvas and keep the authentic, traditional safari atmosphere. Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara.

The entire camp is under canvas with all of the comforts of a luxury hotel. The tents are big, bright and allow in lots of natural light. All tents are classic safari style each with en-suite bathrooms and a private verandah. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and dining tent with views over the plains.

The setting is magical. Staying at Governors' Camp puts you right in the heart of the action in the Masai Mara, closer than anyone else to its incredible sights and sounds.

"I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know what a fantastic time we had on our trip to Africa. Thank you so very much for making the arrangements for us, for a unforgettable vacation filled with many, any precious memories."
Sue Clarke, Delta Airlines
"Thank you for a superb job of planning and organizing as everything went smoothly. The country of South Africa so captivated me that my husband and I are already planning a return trip next summer. The only thing to rival the bush and animals was the food. The experience of South Africa is like no other and its effect is difficult to express. I can only encourage others to make the venture."
Laurel J. Snelling, Physician Assistant Associates PLLC.
"We enjoyed this fourth trip to Africa more than any we have made. Singita was beyond anything we have seen before. The service and the setting were incomparable. At Singita we would sit on the balcony and we saw elephants, baboons, impala, the big monitor lizards and in the morning we left two leopards walked across the river. We are so appreciative for all you have done for us and for the wonderful job you always do."
