The extraordinary Masai Mara, Africa's largest reserve, has long drawn travellers from far and wide, all searching for that special something that keeps them coming back – the spectacular migration of wildebeest herds, the wide-open spaces of big sky country, the roar of the lion or the glimpse of the elusive leopard.
Your 4-day stay shows you the best the reserve has to offer, up close and personal from your verandah or on game-viewing drives. The vastness of the Mara's plains and the abundance of its wildlife leave many at a loss for words but 'perfect freedom' often comes to mind. Grassy plains dotted with acacia trees and teaming with wildlife is the enduring image many have of Africa; in truth, they are thinking of the Masai Mara.
Old-style tented camps tip their hat to the romantic notion of going on safari but with an updated spin on luxury. Your home for four days is one of the most luxurious: the Governors' Camp. Almost a century ago this special hideaway was reserved exclusively for Kenya's colonial governors. It is a magical place nestled along the treed banks of the meandering Mara River, where the call of the wild is strong.
