Governor’s Camp is situated in the northern Masai Mara Game Reserve, where the great migration passes by. The camp, which was once reserved exclusively for Kenya’s colonial governor and royal visitors, is nestled along the winding banks of the Mara River, whose waters are teeming with hippos and crocodiles.
Meals at the Governor’s Camp are amazing, breakfast is prepared every morning over blazing coals, which includes bacon, eggs (prepared to personal taste), fresh milk (flown-in daily), fresh baked croissants, fruits, and fresh Kenyan coffee. Lunch is similarly spectacular with roasted meats, fresh salads and desserts. Both meals are served on the riverbank while enjoying views of Mara’s plains. Evening’s dinner is served by candlelight over cocktails around the bonfire.
The entire camp in under canvas roofs, yet it retains the comforts of a 5 star hotel. 38 tents in total are all done in a classic safari style; some line the riverbank and have views of the wildlife that approach the river, while other tents have views of the plains. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with hot/cold running water, flushing toilets and bidets.
