Governors’ Private Camp is for those who want an exclusive taste of the Governors’ experience. It can only be booked by one family or group at a time so as the name suggests, it is completely private. The 8 luxury tents are located on a beautiful bend of the Mara River where animals come to drink. The forest around the camp is home to many beautiful birds from rare trogans and turacos to nesting hornbills. Personal attention is the hallmark of a stay here. The manager is also the host and is on hand to answer all your questions. The tents are luxurious with handmade furniture; the private bathrooms have flush-toilets and hot showers with crystal-clear water whenever you wish. The food is delicious and you can even tailor your own menus with the executive chef. There are various activities on offer include game drives in open Landrovers during the day and night, and walking safaris. Walks are accompanied by an experienced walking safari guide plus two Masai Scouts whose intimate knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area, the medicinal properties of the plants and their knowledge of Masai culture and customs, enhance the walking safari experience. Balloon flights over the Masai Mara and day excursions to Lake Victoria are also available at extra cost.
