Governors’ were one of the first operations to set up camps in the Mara on the site once used by the old Governors of Kenya. All of the camps are, today, placed along a 2 mile stretch of the Mara River with Governors’ being the original and the largest of the four. Similar in style of tent to Little Governors’, the 37 en-suite, tents are spaced out along the river and have great views to the river below. Often the migration will move straight through the area and it is not unheard of to see them crossing nearby. The bar and dining area are both well appointed with views up and down stream and, with the Plains on the doorstep the viewing is superb!
