• Governors Private Camp, Kenya

about Governors Private Camp - Mara River, Masai Mara

Governors Private Camp can only be booked by one group or family at a time, meaning a truly private, uninterrupted and personal tailor-made safari experience. Sat with stunning views overlooking your own little bend in the Mara River, popular with thirsty game and hungry predators. As you are the only guests, the personal attention is outstanding. As much as possible has been done to keep the camp as authentic as possible, from using traditional colours and artefacts to the sense of adventure sparked by sleeping under canvas.

Governors Private Camp is set in the shade of the surrounding forest where you can find rare birds, such as Trogans and Turacos. 

This unique area is great for watching the great migration and there have been prevalent big cat sightings here.
