One of the oldest camps in the Mara, located on a thickly forested meander of the Mara River, Governors’ Camp is also one of the biggest. This is really the main location of a giant camp split into three neighbouring sites, consisting of this the main Governors’ camp, Little Governors’ and Governors’ Il Moran camps, all clustered around the river in the northwest corner of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The name refers to the site supposedly being favoured by the colonial governors of Kenya.
