Governor's Private Camp

Masai Mara, Kenya

Part of the Kenya Safari & African Safari Collection

Governors’ Private Camp is set in a private spot on the banks of the Mara River within Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.

This is the jewel in the Governors’ Camp crown; 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 can be booked on a tent by tent basis. It means up to 16 people have, to themselves, a beautiful bend of the Mara River.

NB: If booked on an exclusive basis the minimum requirements are four guests to book the Private Camp for a minimum of three nights.


Only eight tents ensure peace and privacy at Governors’ Private Camp. Large comfortable tents are designed to offer guests the traditional safari experience of times gone by. The tents are luxurious with handmade furniture.

Bathrooms have hot and cold running water shower and basins and flush toilets. The tents are positioned on wooden platforms with extended verandahs. There is electric lighting in the tent and charging facilities and a new bar and dining tent overlooking the Mara River with wifi. Meals are served on fine china and crystal. You can even tailor your own menus with the camp’s Executive Chef.


The camp is in the heart of one of the best wildlife viewing areas, which means you won’t waste time getting to the action. All the guides are highly trained, enthusiastic experts who know this area of the Masai Mara and its wildlife like their home.

Guests enjoy game-viewing by 4 wheel drive safari vehicles and have the option to book (at a supplement) Hot Air Balloon excursions, cultural visits and meals in the bush.
