Location: 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.
Accommodation: The entire camp is under canvas with all of the comforts of a luxury hotel. Some of the 30 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 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.
Tent amenities: The camp provides a lovely range of ‘Cinnabar Green’ toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap and body lotion) in the tents. These products are refilled into reusable metal canisters so as to reduce on plastic waste. They are also handmade in Kenya with natural ingredients and are therefore in keeping with the sensitive environment in which they operate. They urge you to please use these products rather than your own. These toiletries are supplied for the duration of your stay , and if you would like to buy some to take onwards with you, they can be purchased in the camp gift shop.

Little Governors Camp: In the Riverine Forest, around a watering hole, close to the Mara River with views across to the Olololo Escarpment.

Vehicles are left on the far river bank and the camp is therefore quiet and undisturbed.
