Governers Camp Facilities

2. Little Governors Camp - intimate & secluded.
3. Mfangano Island Camp - Beauty & quiet.
4. Loldia House - Peace & calm.
Some of the 38 tents line the riverbank, with uninterrupted views over the Mara River; others have views across the sweeping plains. Created in 1972 Governors’ Camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best. Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suit bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets.
Each morning a breakfast feast is prepared over blazing coals: mountains of bacon, eggs the way you like them, fresh milk flown-in daily, hot-baked croissants, exotic fruits, and freshly-brewed Kenya coffee.
Lunch, like breakfast is a buffet, this time roast meats hot and cold, fresh salads and delicious desserts. Both meals are served on the shady riverbank with views across the Mara’s plains.
Governers Camp Additional Information
Our four-wheel-drive vehicles are built to our own specifications. Cut-away roofs give you better views. Our professional drivers will astonish you with what they find: a tell-tale vulture will lead them to a hyena kill, a warning cry from a mother wildebeest reveals a leopard stalking through the grass. For the experience of a lifetime, drift the dawn over the magnificent plains of the Masai Mara in a Hot Air Balloon. Once arriving at the landing sight, feast on a champagne breakfast, before returning to camp. Alternatively, leave your vehicle behind and take a walking safari with one of our armed-guides for the true thrill of the bush, down on the same level as the animals you’ll experience the untamed beauty of the Mara.
