A century ago this camp site, in the western plains of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, was reserved for the colonial governors of Kenya. They selected this location for their safaris due to its natural beauty and superb game viewing. Built in 1972, Governors' Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, teeming with hippos and crocodiles.
Governors' Camp is ideally situated to maximize the game viewing experience of its guests throughout the year. It is also located in one of the most spectacular parts of the Masai Mara in Kenya. The camp is at the heart of the wildebeest migration that passes through this area between July and September. The Mara River sees some of the most dramatic scenes of wildebeest and zebra crossing the river and facing the waiting crocodiles. This is the quintessential time for the annual migration. The Masai Mara is a large game reserve in south western Kenya which is the continuation of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The park boasts astonishing amount of game. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and where prey is found so are predators. The famous black-maned Mara lions, cheetah and leopard hunt these grazing herds of ungulates. Great herds of elephant browse amongst the rich grasslands while hippo and crocodiles keep cool in the Mara and Talek Rivers. Each year, in the deep south of the Serengeti the wildebeest start their great trek in search for the sweet grass of the Masai Mara. This is known as the Great Wildebeest Migration. It is estimated that more than a half million wildebeest enter the Masai Mara and are joined by another 10 000 from the Loita Hills in the east of the Mara. There is nowhere else on earth to compare this wildlife marvel.
