Governors' Camp: video gallery


Governors' Camp: picture gallery


The location of Governors' Camp brings it year-round popularity.
The camp has a great location between the Musiara marsh (east of these tents)…
…and the Mara River – here looking south across the first loop south of the camp.
The central areas at Governors' include the main dining tent…
which has plenty of room for a full house of guests…
…and the bar tent and its deck, on the river bank.
The bar has a good atmosphere and is quite a sociable hangout.
Governors' Camp also has a small shop - adding more of a lodge feel than other camps.
With a formal reception area, Govenors' is an extensive setup…
…and guests are always coming and going.
The tents themselves are traditional in style…
…and quite functional…
…but a good size.
They're homely rather than luxurious, but quite comfortable…
…with large beds and electricity available until 11pm.
The tents also have a small writing table and chair.
At the back of each tent, there's a good-sized, well planned bathroom.
The bathrooms are smartly finished…
…quite informal in layout, with flush loos and plumbed-in showers.
The rather jungly environment of Governors' Camp can be felt in nearly all the tents.
