It’s almost a century since Britain’s colonial governors set up camp for distinguished visitors.
Governors’ Camp nestles in the small forest along the banks of the Mara River, its waters teeming with hippo and crocodile.
Some of the 36 tents line the river bank, with uninterrupted views over the Mara River; others have views across the sweeping plains.
Created in 1972, Governors set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best and everything is under canvas.
As in the past the camp makes much of the wild splendors of Africa and in the highest possible style. Guests stay in well-appointed tents, each with their own bathroom. Evenings are devoted to cocktails around a bonfire and dinner by candlelight.
Each morning a breakfast feast is prepared over blazing coals: mountains of bacon and eggs, fresh milk (flown in daily), hot-baked croissants, exotic fruits and freshly brewed Kenya coffee.
Lunch, like breakfast is a buffet, this time roast meats hot and cold, fresh salads and delicious desserts. Both meals are served on the shady river bank with views across the Mara.
