Governors' Private Camp (Masai
The jewel in the Governors’ Camp crown; for those who
want an exclusive taste of the Governors’ experience.
Private Camp can only be booked by one family or group at a
time, so it’s yours to enjoy, as the name suggests, in
It means up to 16 people have, to themselves, a beautiful
bend of the Mara River. We’ve picked a spot where animals
come to drink, hippo laze in the shallows, elephant bring
their calves for a playful dip.
The forest around the camp is home to many beautiful
birds from rare trogan’s and turacos to nesting hornbills.
Personal attention is the hallmark of a stay here. Your
manager is also your host and is on hand to see to all your
desires and answer all your questions. There’s all the
luxury of a private safari without the excessive costs.
The tents are luxurious with handmade furniture. Private
bathrooms have flush-toilets, hot showers, with
crystal-clear water whenever you wish. The food is
delicious, our desserts have been called "sinful", and the
drinks all free, except for champagne. Meals are served on
fine china and crystal.
You can even tailor your own menus with our Executive
Chef. You benefit from our very best guides and trackers,
whose knowledge of the Reserve is unsurpassed. Backed by the
vast resources of the Governors’ Family of Camps this is the
Governors’ Private Camp must be booked by a minimum of
four guests staying for at least three nights.
Game Viewing / Activities:
There’s always excitement in the Mara, dawn as the
animals wake, midday and the shimmering heat, or dusk,
perfect for hunting: a pride of lion stalking zebra, a herd
of elephant heading for the swamps, cheetah cubs playing in
the shade. Sights you won’t forget. Our professional drivers
will astonish you with what they find: a tell-tale vulture
will lead them to a hyena kill, a warning cry from a mother
wildebeest reveals a leopard stalking through the grass.
Our four-wheel-drive vehicles are built to our own
specifications. Cut-away roofs give you better views. Leave your vehicle behind and take a walking safari with
one of our armed-guides for the true thrill of the bush.
Down on the same level as the animals you’ll experience the
untamed beauty of the Mara. You’ll track game, unsure what
waits round the next corner, giraffe, buffalo, even lion.
You’ll catch the scents and sounds of wild Africa. And at
the end of it all waits a sumptuous bush barbecue complete
with champagne. Surrounding the Mara are the lands of the Masai tribe, a
tall, proud race of warriors. Herding cattle and goats,
they’ve lived among the animals for centuries. We’ll take
you to Masai villages to see a way of life that’s survived
almost unchanged for generations.
Mara Balloon Safaris:
The adventure begins just before dawn. Flames from the
balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate
their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker
across the skies and the balloon fills then rises. Suspended
in a basket beneath the rainbow-colored canopy, you’re off
for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different
perspective. The thing that amazes most first-time
balloonists is the absolute stillness, the silence as you
float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the
Masai Mara . And if you’ve flown elsewhere, you’ve seen
nothing like this. The sounds below drift clearly upwards: a
lion’s roar, elephants crashing through the bush, baboons
perched in the tips of the trees startled and screeching to
see something above them.
For an hour or so you drift wherever the air currents
take you. If you’re lucky you’ll climb high above the Mara
for the view of a lifetime. Then your balloon safari
finishes with a flourish. In the time honored tradition of
balloon flights the world over you toast your return to
earth with a champagne breakfast. The difference this
breakfast happens in the bush, wherever you land, and it’s
cooked before your eyes on the burners that minutes before
kept you suspended in the air. Mara Balloon Safaris
pioneered game-viewing by hot-air balloon in Africa. Today
we operate from Governors’ Camps . We have some of the
world’s most experienced pilots flying some of the world’s
largest balloons. And our distinctive colors are known the
