overview

Situated on a quiet bend of the Mara River that is home to a resident pod of hippos, Governor's Private Camp is surrounded by forests teeming with birdlife. Slighly smaller than its sister camp Il Moran, Governor's is ideal for families or a group of friends as the entire camp can be booked for exclusive use for up to 16 people, offering a completely private safari experience. 

You'll enjoy thrilling game drives in search of Africa's Big 5, and between July and October you’ll have the chance to witness thousands upon thousands of wildebeest and zebra migrate across the savannah and make perilous crossings over the area's crocodile-infested rivers. Early morning hot-air balloon rides will provide you with magnificent aerial views while guided nature walks will introduce you to the details of this incredible ecosystem. You could also visit a nearby Maasai village to meet the locals and learn about their way of life or take a day trip to beautiful Lake Victoria.

Dining

The airy, open-sided dining tent at Governor's Private Camp offers beautiful river views and elegant, tailored dining. The food is of the highest standard and the executive chef will take your personal preferences and dietary requirements into account when preparing your meals.

For a truly special meal, you can also request breakfast, lunch or dinner to be served in a scenic spot away from the camp - an unbeatable romantic experience.

Superior Tent

Governor's Private Camp's eight tents are positioned to create a comfortable homely ambience for your family or friends.

Tents are large and luxurious but retain an authentic safari feel and feature hand-made furniture. Each tent is built on a raised wooden platform and opens up onto an extensive private deck. Rooms are fitted with either double beds or two twin beds, and the private bathrooms have flush toilets as well as hot and cold running water.

Africa Safari Expert

"The location of Governors Private camp is one of the prettiest in the Mara with its views over the river and enclosed by lush forest. The tents are comfortable but possibly what you will remember best after leaving will be the friendly staff and excellent guides."
