Governors’ Main Camp is Africa’s first permanent tented camp, remaining in its original site since 1972. It occupies the best wildlife viewing location in the Reserve, nestled in the riverine forest along the winding banks of the Mara River.
Governors Camp has been pioneering immersive and transformational safaris in the Mara since 1972. They were the first operators to be permanently based inside the Mara, with a site chosen for its prime location. Unfenced and in the heart of the action, the camp is located in some of the best and most precious wildlife locations in the world. Governors' Camp is like a family with a colourful cast of characters that embodies the spirit of safari, while placing the care of the environment, community & conservation at the heart of everything they do. The camp is nestled in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River in the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve, with waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile. Governors’ Camp sets a new standard in luxury for a tented camp, and pioneered the safari experience - one that many return to experience time and time again!
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.
