GOVERNORS’ PRIVATE CAMP – A BYGONE ERA
The jewel in the Governors’ Camp crown – this camp is for those who want an exclusive taste of the Governors’ experience. Private Camp can either be booked by one family or group at a time, so it’s yours to enjoy, as the name suggests, in private, or it can be booked on a tent by tent basis to share with others.
We’ve picked a spot where animals come to drink, hippo laze in the shallows, elephant bring their calves for a playful dip. The forest around the camp is home to many beautiful birds from rare Trogons and Turacos to nesting Hornbills. Personal attention is the hallmark of a stay here. Your manager is also your host and is on hand to see to all your desires and answer all your questions. You benefit from our very best guides and trackers, whose knowledge of the Reserve is unsurpassed. Backed by the vast resources of the Governors’ Family of Camps this is the ultimate safari.
We accept individual bookings at Governors Private Camp which means you can book a tent and share the camp with others. The camp will still be available for private groups too, in order to book the whole camp privately you must book and pay for 6 tents for a minimum of two nights or if your group will occupy more than 6 tents, you must book and pay for every tent occupied.
Property Location: Masai Mara
