Mara Governors Camp
Mara Governors camp is located along the Mara River in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, on a magical setting. Almost a century ago it the camp was reserved, exclusively, for Kenya’s colonial Governors and their royal visitors.
Mara Governors’ Camp has 38 tents set amongst the trees along the Mara river, also has unrivalled views over the plains and is visited and re-visited by guests who find its continued excellence, personal style and family feeling quietly reassuring. All guest tents have en-suite bathrooms with shower and basin, running cold and hot water as well as a flush toilet. Gas and paraffin lamps are used for lighting.
Each morning a buffet breakfast is prepared over blazing coals, 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. Dining is in an open fire place and the bar tent are in the centre of the camp. Dinner is served in the dining tent. For dinner there is usually a menu with a choice of main courses.
There are various activities on offer: game drives in open Land rovers, game walks or balloon flights (optional, with extra cost) over the wide plains of the Masai Mara.
Day excursions to the Lake Victoria are also on offer. However, we recommend booking this excursion well in advance and combining the Lake Victoria trip with an overnight stay. (Optional, with extra cost)
